OVERDOSE

There is no experience with the treatment of acute overdose with SIRTURO. Take general measures to support basic vital functions including monitoring of vital signs and ECG (QT interval) in case of deliberate or accidental overdose. Removal of unabsorbed bedaquiline may be achieved by the administration of activated charcoal. Since bedaquiline is highly protein-bound, dialysis is not likely to significantly remove bedaquiline from plasma.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

None.

This monograph has been modified to include the generic and brand name in many instances.
