OVERDOSE

Overdosage of sulfonylureas, including TOLINASE (tolazamide) Tablets, can produce hypoglycemia.

Mild hypoglycemic symptoms without loss of consciousness or neurologic findings should be treated aggressively with oral glucose and adjustment in drug dosage and/or meal patterns. Close monitoring should continue until the physician is assured the patient is out of danger. Severe hypoglycemic reactions with coma, seizure, or other neurological impairment occur infrequently, but constitute medical emergencies requiring immediate hospitalization. If hypoglycemic coma is suspected or diagnosed, the patient should be given a rapid intravenous injection of concentrated (50%) glucose solution. This should be followed by a continuous infusion of a more dilute (10%) glucose solution at a rate which will maintain the blood glucose at a level above 100 mg/dl. Patients should be closely monitored for a minimum of 24 to 48 hours since hypoglycemia may recur after apparent clinical recovery.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

TOLINASE (tolazamide) Tablets are contraindicated in patients with:

1) known hypersensitivity or allergy to TOLINASE (tolazamide) ;

2) diabetic ketoacidosis, with or without coma. This condition should be treated with insulin;

3) Type I diabetes, as sole therapy.
