Cyclosporine Overdose

Treatment for a Cyclosporine Overdose

Treatment for this type of overdose may vary. If the overdose was recent, a healthcare provider may administer activated charcoal or "pump the stomach" to help reduce the amount of the drug absorbed into the bloodstream. Dialysis is not expected to help remove cyclosporine from the bloodstream.
 
Treatment for any type of overdose also usually involves supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose. For example, supportive care for a cyclosporine overdose may include:
 
  • Fluids through an intravenous line (IV), if necessary
  • Close monitoring of kidney function, body salts (electrolytes), blood pressure, and heart rhythm
  • Medications to treat seizures, if they occur.
 
It is important that you seek medical attention immediately if you believe that you or someone else may have overdosed on this medication.
