Treating an Overdose

Since there have been so few cases of people overdosing on Accolate, it is not known what the best treatment for an overdose on Accolate would be. If the Accolate overdose was recent, a healthcare provider may give certain medicines or place a tube into the stomach to "pump the stomach." Treatment may also involve supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose.
