Treatment for a Fenoglide Overdose

If the overdose was recent, a healthcare provider may "pump the stomach" or administer certain medications to induce vomiting. Dialysis is not expected to be useful for removing Fenoglide from the bloodstream.
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 an overdose of Fenoglide may include:
  • Careful monitoring of the heart, blood pressure, and breathing
  • Fluids through an intravenous line (IV)
  • Other treatments based on complications that occur.
