Details with Side Effects

These doses are 3-6 times the recommended dose. This dose-dependent CNS effect was short-lived in most subjects and lasted up to 30 hours in one subject.

Antizol (fomepizole) should not be administered to patients with a documented serious hypersensitivity reaction to Antizol (fomepizole) or other pyrazoles.
