Contraindications

OVERDOSE

Symptoms:   Overdose may cause hallucinations, convulsions, CNS depression, cardiovascular collapse and death.

Treatment:   Treatment of overdosage should provide symptomatic care. If the amount ingested is considered dangerous or excessive, induce vomiting with ipecac syrup unless the patient is convulsing, comatose, or has lost the gag reflex, in which case, perform gastric lavage using a large-bore tube. If indicated, follow with activated charcoal and a saline cathartic. Since the effects of Entex PSE (pseudoephedrine and guaifenesin) tablets may last up to 12 hours, treatment should be continued for at least that length of time.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Entex PSE (pseudoephedrine and guaifenesin) tablets are contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients, in nursing mothers, or in patients with severe hypertension, severe coronary artery disease, prostatic hypertrophy, or in patients on MAO inhibitor therapy.
