Zyflo CR Overdose: What Does the Research Say?

It is not known what to expect from a Zyflo CR overdose. In one case, a person took a very large dose of Zyflo (the short-acting version of Zyflo CR) without any lasting problems. In this particular case, the overdose was treated by inducing vomiting.
 

Treatment for a Zyflo CR Overdose

Given that there have been so few cases of people taking too much Zyflo CR, it is also not known what the best treatment is for a Zyflo CR overdose. If the Zyflo CR overdose was recent, the healthcare provider may administer 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. Dialysis does not help to remove Zyflo CR from the blood.
