Reports of acute toxicity and/or death following overdosage of glucocorticosteroids are rare. Treatment consists of immediate gastric lavage or emesis followed by supportive and symptomatic therapy.
If glucocorticosteroids are used at excessive doses for prolonged periods, systemic glucocorticosteroid effects such as hypercorticism and adrenal suppression may occur. For chronic overdosage in the face of severe disease requiring continuous steroid therapy, the dosage may be reduced temporarily.
ENTOCORT EC is contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity to budesonide or any of the ingredients of ENTOCORT EC. Anaphylactic reactions have occurred [see ADVERSE REACTIONS].
