What are the repercussions of overdosing on Oleanz?
Toxicity can lead to Coma, and death
Thanks for asking to Health Care Magic.
Oral doses take around 5 to 6 hrs to peak in blood.Toxic doses of Oleanz(Olanzapine) can cause palpitations, sudden fall in blood pressure, dry mouth, ketoacidosis, increased breathing, inner restlessness, tremors, dizziness, marked sedation, coma and even death .
If not given proper first aid (Nasogastric lavage) and other supportive care in few hours.
Feel free to ask further queries if any
Thanks for following up
It depends on many factors like body weight, general health, age of the person etc.
Though roughly person after such toxic dose, can survive around 12-24 hrs.
Survival duration tough to predict or generalise..
Thanks for getting back
The drug's action and metabolism is quite complex, hence survival period following toxic doses is tough to predict or generalize as in case of other drug toxicities and also there are no enough data or case reports to concretely say. As said earlier, the patient may go into respiratory or circulatory collapse in a day if not adequately treated. And after taking such dose,the patient may start to experience symptoms one by one as explained in previous query.
Hope I have answered your query.
Feel free to ask if any clarifications needed be or other health concerns
