No serious unexpected side effects have resulted from studies involving megestrol acetate oral suspension administered in dosages as high as 1200 mg/day. Megestrol acetate has not been tested for dialyzability; however, due to its low solubility it is postulated that dialysis would not be an effective means of treating overdose.
History of hypersensitivity to megestrol acetate or any component of the formulation. Known or suspected pregnancy.This monograph has been modified to include the generic and brand name in many instances.
