TOBI Podhaler



The maximum tolerated daily dose of TOBI Podhaler has not been established.

In the event of accidental oral ingestion of TOBI Podhaler capsules, systemic toxicity is unlikely as tobramycin is poorly absorbed. Tobramycin serum concentrations may be helpful in monitoring overdosage.

Acute toxicity should be treated with immediate withdrawal of TOBI Podhaler, and baseline tests of renal function should be undertaken.

Hemodialysis may be helpful in removing tobramycin from the body.

In all cases of suspected overdosage, physicians should contact the Regional Poison Control Center for information about effective treatment. In the case of any overdosage, the possibility of drug interactions with alterations in drug disposition should be considered.


TOBI Podhaler is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to any aminoglycoside.

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