Contraindications

OVERDOSE

Can cause a cholinergic crisis. Appropriate antidote is atropine sulfate.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Physostigmine Salicylate (physostigmine salicylate (injection)) Injection should not be used in the presence of asthma, gangrene, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, mechanical obstruction of the intestine or urogenital tract or any vagotonic state, and in patients receiving choline esters and depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agents (decamethonium, succinylcholine).

For post-anesthesia, the concomitant use of atropine with physostigmine salicylate (physostigmine salicylate (injection)) is not recommended, since the atropine antagonizes the action of physostigmine.
