Parkinsons Disease Home > Lodosyn Overdose
Since Lodosyn is always used in combination with levodopa products, it is not known what to expect from an overdose of just Lodosyn (carbidopa). Overdose symptoms that have been reported with levodopa include involuntary body movements, nausea and vomiting, rapid heart rate, and high or low blood pressure. Treatment for a Lodosyn overdose may include supportive care, "pumping the stomach," and medications.
- Nausea and vomiting
- A rapid heart rate (tachycardia)
- Confusion or agitation
- Insomnia and restlessness
- Involuntary body movements
- Low blood pressure (hypotension) or high blood pressure (hypertension).
- Fluids through an intravenous line (IV)
- Careful monitoring of the heart, blood pressure, and breathing
- Other treatments based on complications that occur.
