Details with Side Effects
Should overdose of RAPAFLO lead to hypotension, support of the cardiovascular system is of first importance. Restoration of blood pressure and normalization of heart rate may be accomplished by maintaining the patient in the supine position. If this measure is inadequate, administration of intravenous fluid should be considered. If necessary, vasopressors could be used, and renal function should be monitored and supported as needed. Dialysis is unlikely to be of significant benefit since silodosin is highly (97%) protein bound.
- Severe renal impairment (CCr < 30 mL/min)
- Severe hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh score ≥ 10)
- Concomitant administration with strong Cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4) inhibitors (e.g., ketoconazole, clarithromycin, itraconazole, ritonavir) [see DRUG INTERACTIONS]
- Patients with a history of hypersensitivity to silodosin or any of the ingredients of RAPAFLO [see ADVERSE REACTIONS and DESCRIPTION]
