Although it is possible to overdose on Azactam (aztreonam injection), it is not exactly known what to expect, since there haven't been any reported cases. If you believe you have overdosed on this medication, seek immediate medical attention. You may need dialysis to help remove the medicine from your blood, or supportive care treatment for any symptoms that result.
Azactam® (aztreonam injection) is a prescription antibiotic used to treat infections in several different parts of the body. It is given as an injection through a needle inserted into a vein (an intravenous, or IV, injection) or into a muscle (an intramuscular, or IM, injection).
As with any medication, it is possible to overdose on Azactam. The specific effects of an overdose can vary, however, depending on a number of factors, such as the Azactam dosage and whether it was used with any other medications or substances.
At this time, there have been no reported cases of an Azactam overdose. Therefore, it is not entirely clear what to expect from using too much of this medicine.
The treatment for an Azactam overdose may vary. If needed, dialysis can be used to clear the medication from the bloodstream.
Treatment will also likely include supportive care, which consists of treating any symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose. This type of treatment will be individualized based on complications that occur.
Seek immediate medical attention if you or someone you know may have overdosed on this medication.
