Overdosage
Contraindications

OVERDOSE

Rosiglitazone

Limited data are available with regard to overdosage in humans. In clinical trials in volunteers, rosiglitazone has been administered at single oral doses of up to 20 mg and was well tolerated. In the event of an overdose, appropriate supportive treatment should be initiated as dictated by the patient's clinical status.

Glimepiride

An overdosage of glimepiride, as with other sulfonylureas, can produce severe hypoglycemia. Mild episodes of hypoglycemia can be treated with oral glucose. Severe hypoglycemic reactions constitute medical emergencies requiring immediate treatment. Severe hypoglycemia with coma, seizure, or neurological impairment can be treated with glucagon or intravenous glucose. Continued observation and additional carbohydrate intake may be necessary because hypoglycemia may recur after apparent clinical recovery [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Initiation of AVANDARYL in patients with established New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class III or IV heart failure is contraindicated [see BOXED WARNING].

AVANDARYL is contraindicated in patients with a history of a hypersensitivity reaction to rosiglitazone or glimepiride or any of the product's ingredients.

Patients who have developed an allergic reaction to sulfonamide derivatives may develop an allergic reaction to AVANDARYL. Do not use AVANDARYL in patients who have a history of an allergic reaction to sulfonamide derivatives. Reported hypersensitivity reactions include cutaneous eruptions with or without pruritis as well as more serious reactions (e.g., anaphylaxis, angioedema, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, dyspnea) [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS and ADVERSE REACTIONS].

This monograph has been modified to include the generic and brand name in many instances.
