Full Prescribing Info
Overdosage
Overdosage with hyoscine butylbromide may cause disorientation memory disturbances, dizziness, restlessness, hallucinations or confusion.
Treatment: Empty the stomach by aspiration and lavage. The use of charcoal to prevent absorption, followed by lavage has been suggested. Give a purgative, such as 30g of sodium sulphate in 250ml of water. Physostigmine salicylate has been advocated to control the central and peripheral effects of hyoscine but is not now generally recommended. Excitement may be controlled by diazepams or a short acting barbiturate. Supportive therapy may require oxygen and assisted respiration ice bags or alcohol sponges for hyperpyrexia, especially in children, bladder catheterisation and the administration of fluids.
