One patient treated with 650 mg/kg/day of carglumic acid developed symptoms characterized as a monosodium glutamate intoxication-like syndrome: tachycardia, profuse sweating, increased bronchial secretion, increased body temperature and restlessness. These symptoms resolved upon reduction of dose.
Repeated oral dosing of carglumic acid at 2000 mg/kg/day was lethal to most neonatal rats within 2-3 days of treatment. In adult rats, a single oral administration of carglumic acid was not lethal at doses up to 2800 mg/kg (1.8 times the maximum recommended starting dose based on a body surface area comparison to adult humans).
