Myrbetriq Overdose

Taking an overdose of Myrbetriq (mirabegron) may cause heart palpitations, an increased heart rate, and high blood pressure. Seek medical treatment right away if you believe you have taken too much of this drug. A healthcare provider may treat an overdose by "pumping" the stomach, administering certain medications, or providing supportive care.

Can You Take Too Much Myrbetriq?

Myrbetriq™ (mirabegron) is a prescription medication used to treat symptoms of an overactive bladder in adults. As with most medications, it is possible to take too much Myrbetriq.
 
The specific effects of an overdose can vary, depending on a number of factors, including the Myrbetriq dosage and whether it was taken with any other medications or substances.
 

Effects of an Overdose

At this time, there have not been any reports of an overdose with this medicine. However, based on studies in which high doses of Myrbetriq were given to people, overdose symptoms could include:
 
  • Heart palpitations (a fast, pounding, or fluttering heartbeat)
  • Increased heart rate (tachycardia)
  • Increases in blood pressure.
 

Treatment Options for a Myrbetriq Overdose

If the overdose was recent, a healthcare provider may administer activated charcoal or "pump the stomach" to help reduce the amount of the medication absorbed into the bloodstream. He or she will also closely monitor the heart rate, blood pressure, and heart rhythm with an electrocardiogram, or ECG.
 
Treatment will also involve supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose. For instance, medications may be given to treat a fast heart rate or high blood pressure.
 
It is important that you seek medical attention immediately if you believe that you or someone else may have taken too much Myrbetriq.
