Treatment for a Maxair overdose involves supportive care. This type of care consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose. For example, supportive care treatment options may include:
Fluids through an intravenous line (IV)
Medications to reverse the effect of Maxair (such as beta blockers)
Other treatments based on complications that occur.
It is important that you seek medical attention immediately if you believe that you may have overdosed on Maxair.
