Question Overdosed - June 25th 2011, 10:06 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

What happens if I overdose on hayfever tablets (loratadine)?
It says take a maximum of 1 in 24 hours. I took over 40.
What happens? Please don't tell me to go to a&e because I won't go.

Symptoms of Loratadine Overdose

  • Although loratadine overdose is not likely, it is possible. Rapid heart rate, forceful heartbeat, headache and sleepiness are symptoms you may experience with doses over the recommended amount. You also may experience palpitations and extrapyramidal symptoms (tremors, twitching, restlessness). Symptoms may depend on other factors, too, such as if you took any other medications with the loratadine.
What to Do for a Loratadine Overdose

  • Call your doctor immediately in the event of a loratadine overdose. You also may call a poison control center. To counteract the overdose of loratadine, you may be given ipecac syrup to induce vomiting, then activated charcoal to absorb the remaining medication in your stomach, or you may need your stomach pumped. If the ingestion was not recent, you may receive symptomatic care until symptoms subside. Symptomatic care might include intravenous fluids and medication for headache, heart rate and restlessness.
