Sanctura Overdose

In cases where people took too much Sanctura, overdose symptoms included dry mouth or eyes, difficulty urinating, severe constipation, and increased pressure within the eyes. Although it is not known how best to treat a Sanctura overdose, treatment will most likely involve supportive care (which consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose).

Sanctura Overdose: An Introduction

Sanctura® (trospium chloride) is a prescription medication used for the treatment of an overactive bladder. It belongs to a group of drugs known as anticholinergic medications. The effects of a Sanctura overdose will vary, depending on a number of factors, such as the Sanctura dosage and whether it is taken with other medicines, alcohol, or street drugs.
 
If you happen to overdose on Sanctura, seek immediate medical attention.
 

Symptoms of a Sanctura Overdose

As an anticholinergic medication, Sanctura is prone to causing a certain group of side effects (known as anticholinergic side effects), which may be more severe if too much of the medicine is taken. These side effects include:
 
  • Dry mouth or eyes
  • Blurred vision
  • Severe constipation
  • Difficulty passing urine
  • Dilated (wide open) pupils
  • Increased pressure within the eyes.
     
In one case of Sanctura overdose, a rapid heart rate (tachycardia) was also reported.
 

Treatment for a Sanctura Overdose

It is not known how best to treat a Sanctura overdose. Therefore, treatment will usually involve supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose. For instance, if an overdose caused a rapid heart rate, then supportive treatment would include medications to decrease the heart rate.
 
It is important that you seek prompt medical attention if you believe that you may have overdosed on Sanctura.
