The treatment for an overdose will vary, and there is no specific antidote. If the metronidazole overdose was recent and taken by mouth, a healthcare provider may administer certain medicines or place a tube into the stomach to "pump the stomach." Treatment also involves supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result. For example, supportive treatment options may include:
- Fluids through an intravenous line (IV), if necessary
- Close monitoring of vital signs, such as heart rate and breathing
- Other treatments based on the complications that occur.
It is important that you seek medical attention immediately if you believe that you may have taken too much metronidazole.
