Treating Someone Who Takes Too Much Septra

Treatment for a Septra Overdose

The treatment for a Septra overdose will vary. If the overdose was recent, the 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 of the overdose. For example, supportive treatment options may include:
 
  • Plenty of fluids by mouth, if possible
  • Fluids through an intravenous line (IV), if necessary
  • Other treatments based on the complications that occur.
     
It is important that you seek medical attention immediately if you believe that you may have overdosed on Septra.
