OVERDOSE

Contact a poison control center for up-to-date information on the management of benzodiazepine overdose.

Manifestations of Doral overdose include somnolence, confusion, and coma. General supportive measures should be employed, along with immediate gastric lavage. Dialysis is of limited value. Flumazenil may be useful, but can contribute to the appearance of neurological symptoms including convulsions. Hypotension may be treated by appropriate medical intervention. Animal experiments suggest that forced diuresis or hemodialysis are of little value in treating Doral overdose. As with the management of intentional overdose with any drug, the possibility of multiple drug ingestion should be considered.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

DORAL is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to quazepam or other benzodiazepines. Rare cases of angioedema involving the tongue, glottis or larynx have been reported in patients after taking the first or subsequent doses of DORAL. Some patients have had additional symptoms such as dyspnea, throat closing, or nausea and vomiting that suggest anaphylaxis. Patients who develop such reactions should not be rechallenged with Doral.

Contraindicated in patients with established or suspected sleep apnea, or with pulmonary insufficiency.
