There have been no reported overdosages with PATANASE Nasal Spray.
Acute overdosage with this dosage form is unlikely due to the configuration of the primary container closure system. However, symptoms of antihistamine overdose may include drowsiness in adults and, initially, agitation and restlessness, followed by drowsiness in children. There is no known specific antidote to PATANASE Nasal Spray. Should overdose occur, symptomatic or supportive treatment is recommended, taking into account any concomitantly ingested medications.
