Solodyn Overdose

Because calcium can bind to Solodyn (minocycline) in the digestive tract, if an overdose occurs, milk may help reduce the amount of medication the body absorbs. Symptoms of an overdose with Solodyn include indigestion, vomiting, and blurred vision. Treatment will involve supportive care, which consists of monitoring and relieving any symptoms that are present.

Can You Take Too Much Solodyn?

Solodyn® (minocycline hydrochloride) is a prescription medication used to treat moderate-to-severe acne in people 12 years of age and older. As with most medications, it is possible to take too much Solodyn. The specific effects of an overdose will likely vary, depending on a number of factors, including the Solodyn dosage and whether it was taken with any other medications or substances.

What Are the Effects of an Overdose?

Symptoms of a Solodyn overdose may include:

Treatment for a Solodyn Overdose

If the overdose was recent, a healthcare provider may administer activated charcoal or "pump the stomach" to help reduce the amount of the medication that is absorbed into the bloodstream. Water or milk may also be given to help dilute the medication in the gastrointestinal tract. Dialysis is not expected to remove large amounts of Solodyn from the body.
Treatment will also involve supportive care, which consists of treating symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose. For instance, antacids may be given to help relieve stomach irritation. Antacids may also bind to Solodyn and help reduce the amount absorbed into the body.
It is important that you seek medical attention immediately if you believe that you or someone else may have taken a Solodyn overdose.
