There is no specific antidote for mesalamine overdose and treatment for suspected acute severe toxicity with Delzicol should be symptomatic and supportive. This may include prevention of further gastrointestinal tract absorption, correction of fluid electrolyte imbalance, and maintaining adequate renal function. Delzicol is a pH dependent delayed-release product and this factor should be considered when treating a suspected overdose.
Delzicol is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to salicylates or aminosalicylates or to any of the ingredients of Delzicol [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS, ADVERSE REACTIONS, and DESCRIPTION].
