Overdosage
Contraindications

OVERDOSE

No overdoses have been reported with BETHKIS in clinical trials. Signs and symptoms of acute toxicity from overdosage of intravenous tobramycin might include dizziness, tinnitus, vertigo, loss of high-tone hearing acuity, respiratory failure, and neuromuscular blockade. Administration by inhalation results in low systemic bioavailability of tobramycin. Tobramycin is not significantly absorbed following oral administration. Tobramycin serum concentrations may be helpful in monitoring overdosage.

In all cases of suspected overdosage, physicians should contact the Regional Poison Control Center for information about effective treatment. In the case of any overdosage, the possibility of drug interactions with alterations in drug disposition should be considered.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

BETHKIS is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to any aminoglycoside.

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