Most reported overdoses have been asymptomatic. The risk of symptoms occurs when the dose of ibuprofen is more than 80-100 mg / kg. The use of the drug in children at a dose of more than 400 mg / kg may cause symptoms of intoxication. In adults, the effect of the dose is less pronounced. The half-life in overdose is 1.5-3 hours.
Symptoms. Symptoms of overdose occur within 4 hours after application. In most patients, the use of clinically significant amounts of NSAIDs caused symptoms of mild overdose, including nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain, or, less commonly, diarrhea. Tinnitus, headache, and gastrointestinal bleeding may also occur. With more severe poisoning, toxic lesions of the central nervous system are possible, in the form of vertigo, dizziness, lethargy, drowsiness, sometimes – agitation, ataxia, disorientation or coma.
Treatment. There is no specific antidote. Treatment should be symptomatic and supportive, and should include airway patency and monitoring of cardiac function and vital functions until normalization. When using small amounts of the drug (less than 50 mg / kg ibuprofen) it is recommended to use water to minimize the effects of gastrointestinal tact. If large amounts are used, oral administration of activated charcoal or gastric lavage is recommended if no more than 1 hour has elapsed since the patient administered a potentially toxic dose and the patient has not used a life-threatening amount. If ibuprofen has already been absorbed, you can use alkaline substances that promote the excretion of acidic ibuprofen in the urine.
