Epivir-HBV

OVERDOSE

There is no known antidote for EPIVIR-HBV. If overdose occurs, the patient should be monitored, and standard supportive treatment utilized, 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-HBV is contraindicated in patients who have experienced a previous hypersensitivity reaction (e.g., anaphylaxis) to lamivudine or to any component of the tablets or oral solution.
