No experience with overdose of BELVIQ is available. In clinical studies that used doses that were higher than the recommended dose, the most frequent adverse reactions associated with BELVIQ were headache, nausea, abdominal discomfort, and dizziness. Single 40- and 60-mg doses of BELVIQ caused euphoria, altered mood, and hallucination in some subjects. Treatment of overdose should consist of BELVIQ discontinuation and general supportive measures in the management of overdosage. BELVIQ is not eliminated to a therapeutically significant degree by hemodialysis.
