verapamil hydrochloride injection, USP Overdosage

OVERDOSAGE

Treatment of overdosage should be supportive and individualized. Beta-adrenergic stimulation and/or parenteral administration of calcium injections may increase calcium ion flux across the slow channel, and have been effectively used in treatment of deliberate overdosage with oral verapamil hydrochloride. Verapamil cannot be removed by hemodialysis.

Clinically significant hypotensive reactions or high-degree AV block should be treated with vasopressor agents or cardiac pacing, respectively. Asystole should be handled by the usual measures including isoproterenol hydrochloride, other vasopressor agents, or cardiopulmonary resuscitation (see ADVERSE REACTIONS: Suggested Treatment of Acute Cardiovascular Adverse Reactions).
