Prostate Cancer Home > Flutamide Overdose
Treatment OptionsIf the overdose was recent, a healthcare provider may administer activated charcoal or "pump the stomach" to help reduce the amount of the medication that is absorbed into the bloodstream. Dialysis is not expected to be useful for treating a flutamide overdose.
Treatment will also involve supportive care, which consists of treating symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose. Supportive treatment for a person who takes too much flutamide may include close monitoring of vital signs, such as heart rate and blood pressure.
It is important that you seek medical attention immediately if you believe that you or someone else may have overdosed on this medication.
