There is no specific experience in the management of lenalidomide overdose in patients; although in dose-ranging studies, some patients were exposed to up to 150 mg and in single-dose studies, some patients were exposed to up to 400 mg.
In studies, the dose-limiting toxicity was essentially hematological. In the event of overdose, supportive care is advised.
REVLIMID can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant female. Limb abnormalities were seen in the offspring of monkeys that were dosed with lenalidomide during organogenesis. This effect was seen at all doses tested. Due to the results of this developmental monkey study, and lenalidomide's structural similarities to thalidomide, a known human teratogen, lenalidomide is contraindicated in females who are pregnant [see BOXED WARNING]. If this drug is used during pregnancy or if the patient becomes pregnant while taking this drug, the patient should be apprised of the potential hazard to the fetus [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS, Use in Special Populations].
