Aubagio Overdose

Treatment Options for an Aubagio Overdose

If the overdose was recent, a healthcare provider may administer activated charcoal to help reduce the amount of the medication absorbed into the bloodstream. In addition, a healthcare provider may give a medication called cholestyramine (Prevalite®, Questran®, Questran® Light) to help remove Aubagio from the bloodstream. If cholestyramine is used, it is normally given for 11 days.
Treatment for any type of overdose also typically involves supportive care, which consists of treating any symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose. For example, supportive treatment options for an Aubagio overdose may include:
  • Fluids through an intravenous line (IV), if necessary
  • Close monitoring of blood cell counts
  • A medication known as granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF), such as filgrastim (Neupogen®), to stimulate the bone marrow to make more white blood cells if white blood cell counts drop dangerously low.
Seek immediate medical attention if you or someone you know may have overdosed on this medication.
