Overdosage occurs if more than one vial of TICE® BCG is administered per instillation.

For acute local or systemic reactions suggesting active infection, an infectious disease specialist experienced in BCG complications should be consulted.
TICE® BCG should not be used in immunosuppressed patients or persons with congenital or acquired immune deficiencies, whether due to concurrent disease (e.g., AIDS, leukemia, lymphoma) cancer therapy (e.g., cytotoxic drugs, radiation) or immunosuppressive therapy (e.g., corticosteroids).
