What happens if I overdose on omeprazole

Overdose of Omeprazole and how to treat it

Overdose of Omeprazole can cause:

  • confusion,
  • drowsiness,
  • blurred vision,
  • fast heart beat,
  • nausea,
  • vomiting,
  • sweatiness,
  • flushing,
  • headache,
  • dry mouth,
  • and other adverse reactions similar to those seen at normal doses of Omeprazole. Symptoms are transient, and no serious clinical outcome has been reported when an overdose of Omeprazole was taken alone.

No specific antidote for omeprazole overdosage is known. Omeprazole is extensively protein bound and is, therefore, not readily dialyzable.  In the event of over dosage, treatment should be symptomatic and supportive.
