OVERDOSE

In the event of overdose, DORIBAX® should be discontinued and general supportive treatment given.

Doripenem can be removed by hemodialysis. In subjects with end-stage renal disease administered DORIBAX® 500 mg, the mean total recovery of doripenem and doripenemM1 in the dialysate following a 4-hour hemodialysis session was 259 mg (52% of the dose). However, no information is available on the use of hemodialysis to treat overdosage. [see CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY]

CONTRAINDICATIONS

DORIBAX® is contraindicated in patients with known serious hypersensitivity to doripenem or to other drugs in the same class or in patients who have demonstrated anaphylactic reactions to beta-lactams.
