Sanctura XR Overdose

If you take too much Sanctura XR (trospium XR), overdose symptoms may include blurred vision, severe constipation, or difficulty passing urine. The specific effects of a Sanctura XR overdose will vary based on how much of the medication was taken and whether it was taken with other substances. Even though it is not exactly known how best to treat a Sanctura XR overdose, treatment will typically involve treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose.

Sanctura XR Overdose: An Introduction

Sanctura® XR (trospium XR) is a prescription medication used to treat an overactive bladder. Sanctura XR is known as an anticholinergic medication.

If you happen to overdose on Sanctura XR, seek immediate medical attention.
 

Symptoms of a Sanctura XR Overdose

Because it is an anticholinergic medication, Sanctura XR is prone to causing a certain group of side effects (known as anticholinergic side effects). These side effects may be more severe if too much Sanctura XR is taken. These side effects can include:
 
  • Blurred vision
  • Severe constipation
  • Dry mouth or eyes
  • Difficulty passing urine
  • Dilated (wide open) pupils
  • Increased pressure within the eyes.
     

Treatment for a Sanctura XR Overdose

It is not known how best to treat a Sanctura XR overdose. If the Sanctura XR overdose was recent, the healthcare provider may administer certain medicines or place a tube into the stomach to "pump the stomach." Treatment may also involve supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose. For instance, if an overdose caused severe constipation, then supportive treatment would include administering certain medications to relieve the constipation.
 
In all cases of a Sanctura XR overdose, it is recommended that the heart be closely monitored.
 
It is important that you seek prompt medical attention if you believe that you may have overdosed on Sanctura XR.
