OVERDOSE

Human experience of overdose with OLYSIO is limited. There is no specific antidote for overdose with OLYSIO. In the event of an overdose, the patient's clinical status should be observed and the usual supportive measures employed.

Simeprevir is highly protein-bound; therefore, dialysis is unlikely to result in significant removal of simeprevir [see CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY].

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Because OLYSIO is used only in combination with other antiviral drugs (including Peg-IFN-alfa and RBV) for the treatment of chronic HCV infection, the contraindications to other drugs also apply to the combination regimen. Refer to the respective prescribing information for a list of contraindications.

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