Miacalcin Injection Overdose

In studies where people were given high doses of Miacalcin injection, overdose symptoms included nausea and vomiting. An overdose may also cause low blood calcium, which can lead to an irregular heart rhythm, muscle twitches or spasms, and seizures. Treatment for a Miacalcin injection overdose usually involves supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose.

Miacalcin Injection Overdose: An Introduction

Miacalcin® injection (calcitonin salmon injection) is a prescription medication used to treat a variety of conditions affecting calcium and the bones. It is a manufactured version of calcitonin, a naturally occurring hormone. As with any medication, it is possible to take too much Miacalcin injection. The specific effects of a Miacalcin injection overdose can vary, depending on a number of factors, including the Miacalcin injection dosage, how the drug was taken (by injection or by mouth), and whether it was taken with other medications or substances.
 

Symptoms of a Miacalcin Injection Overdose

In studies, high doses of Miacalcin injection were given without causing any additional problems, other than the typical Miacalcin injection side effects. Studies have shown that a large dose of Miacalcin given by injection can cause nausea and vomiting. Based on the way Miacalcin injection works, it is reasonable to assume that an overdose may cause low blood calcium (hypocalcemia), resulting in the following symptoms:
 
  • Muscle twitches or spasms
  • Seizures
  • An irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia).
     
Taking a Miacalcin injection overdose by mouth instead of by injection may be less likely to cause problems, as the medication would be inactivated by the digestive system.
