Overdosage

For management of a suspected drug overdose, contact your regional Poison Control Centre.

Hydrocortisone is dialyzable.

Treatment of acute overdosage is by supportive and symptomatic therapy. For chronic overdosage in the face of severe disease requiring continuous steroid therapy, the dosage of corticosteroid may be reduced only temporarily, or alternate day treatment may be introduced.

Continuous overdosage would require careful gradual reduction of dosage in order to prevent the occurrence of acute adrenal insufficiency.

Complications resulting from the metabolic effects of the corticosteroid should be handled as appropriate. Maintain adequate fluid intake and monitor electrolytes in serum and urine, with particular attention to sodium and potassium balance. Treat electrolyte imbalance if necessary.
