Treatment for a Kombiglyze XR Overdose

At this time, it is unclear how best to treat an overdose with this medication. If the overdose was recent, the healthcare provider might give certain medicines or place a tube into the stomach to "pump the stomach." Dialysis is useful for removing Kombiglyze XR from the blood. Treatment will also involve supportive care, such as:
 
  • Close monitoring of blood sugar
  • Fluids through an intravenous line (IV)
  • A sugar (glucose) solution to increase blood sugar
  • Other treatments based on complications that occur.
     
It is important that you seek medical attention immediately if you believe that you or someone else may have overdosed on Kombiglyze XR.
