OVERDOSE

There is no known specific treatment for overdose with EPIVIR. If overdose occurs, the patient should be monitored and standard supportive treatment applied as required. Because a negligible amount of lamivudine was removed via (4-hour) hemodialysis, continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis, and automated peritoneal dialysis, it is not known if continuous hemodialysis would provide clinical benefit in a lamivudine overdose event.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

EPIVIR is contraindicated in patients with a previous hypersensitivity reaction to lamivudine.

This monograph has been modified to include the generic and brand name in many instances.
