OVERDOSE AND TREATMENT
Montelukast given in doses up to 200 mg/day for 22 weeks and up to 900 mg/day for approximately a week to adult patients showed no clinically important adverse reactions. Acute overdosages in adults and children given montelukast with a dose as high as 1000 mg have been reported. There were no adverse effects reported in majority of overdosage reports. The most frequent adverse effects observed were somnolence, headache, thirst, vomiting, abdominal pain, mydriasis, hyperkinesias, and psychomotor hyperactivity.
There is no specific information available on the treatment of overdosage with montelukast. In case of overdose, institute supportive and symptomatic therapy, i.e., remove unabsorbed material from the gastrointestinal tract. There is no adequate evidence to support the use of dialysis in the treatment of montelukast overdose.
