OVERDOSE

Doses titrated up to 300 mg once daily have been safely administered to patients on dialysis. Overdosage of Sensipar (cinacalcet) may lead to hypocalcemia. In the event of overdosage, patients should be monitored for signs and symptoms of hypocalcemia and appropriate measures taken to correct serum calcium levels [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
