Actoplus Met XR Overdose

Treatment Options

Treatment for an Actoplus Met XR overdose varies. If the overdose was recent, a healthcare provider may give certain medicines or place a tube into the stomach to "pump the stomach." Treatment may also involve supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose.
 
For example, supportive treatment options for someone who has taken too much Actoplus Met XR may include:
 
  • Dialysis
  • Fluids through an intravenous (IV) line
  • A sugar (glucose) solution to increase blood sugar
  • Other treatments based on complications that occur.
     
It is important that you seek medical attention immediately if you believe that you or someone else may have overdosed on this medication.
