OVERDOSE

Acute central nervous system depression, hypotension, and metabolic acidosis have been observed in patients who were receiving higher than recommended doses of VUMON, and who were also pretreated with antiemetic drugs.

There is no known antidote for VUMON overdosage. The anticipated complications of overdosage are secondary to bone marrow suppression. Treatment should consist of supportive care, including blood products and antibiotics as indicated.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

VUMON is generally contraindicated in patients who have demonstrated a previous hypersensitivity to teniposide and/or Cremophor® EL (polyoxyethylated castor oil).
