What is the appropriate treatment for a minor overdose of clenbuterol (athsma medication)?
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Greetings.
Doctor :   May I know your age & gender?
User :   Age 39, male, obese.
Doctor :   Could you give me more precise details of the quantity of overdose?
User :   I was supposed to take 80mcg, but I forgot I already took a dose this morning and now I have 160mcg inside me.
Doctor :   ok, double dose
Doctor :   Unless you have any other co-morbidities(heart diseases or liver diseases), there is little to worry
Doctor :   As the drug will get metabolised
Doctor :   In case you develop symptoms like nausea, vomiting, palpitations etc, then it means that you have taken more than double dose & you need to visit the Emergency
Doctor :   May I know the time gap between the 2 doses?
User :   About 3 hours
Doctor :   Thats a very short time, kindly go to the emergency, you need observation till the drug is metabolised
User :   Ok, so when I get there and I tell them what happened, what drugs will they administer to me?
Doctor :   They may not administer any, observation is recomended
