An overdose of this medicine is unlikely, as each dosage is specifically made to contain a specific amount of medication, and is administered by a healthcare provider. However, it is always important to seek immediate medical attention if you or someone else may have overdosed on this or any other drug.
If you miss your PROVENGE dose, contact your healthcare provider as soon as possible. This medication has a short window for use before it expires.
