Ximino Overdose

Seek immediate medical treatment if you believe you have taken too much Ximino. An overdose of this medication can cause numerous symptoms, such as vomiting, blurred vision, and dizziness. Treatment options may include administering activated charcoal, pumping the stomach, and providing supportive care to treat any symptoms that occur. Water or milk may also be given to help dilute the medicine in the gastrointestinal tract.

Can You Take Too Much Ximino?

Ximino™ (minocycline hydrochloride) is a prescription antibiotic 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.
 
The specific effects of an overdose can vary, depending on a number of factors, including the Ximino dosage and whether it was taken with any other medications or substances.

Treatment for a Ximino 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 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 help remove large amounts of Ximino from the body.
 
Treatment will also involve supportive care, which consists of treating the 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 Ximino 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 too much Ximino.
