There is no information on intentional overdose of Tyzeka, but one subject experienced an unintentional and asymptomatic overdose. Healthy subjects who received Tyzeka doses up to 1800 mg per day for 4 days had no increase in or unexpected adverse events. A maximum tolerated dose for Tyzeka has not been determined. In the event of an overdose, Tyzeka should be discontinued, the patient must be monitored for evidence of toxicity, and appropriate general supportive treatment applied as necessary.

In case of overdosage, hemodialysis may be considered. Within 2 hours, following a single 200 mg dose of telbivudine, a 4-hour hemodialysis session removed approximately 23% of the telbivudine dose.


Combination of Tyzeka with pegylated interferon alfa-2a is contraindicated because of increased risk of peripheral neuropathy [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS and DRUG INTERACTIONS].

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