Early treatment after an overdose with Darvon-N
is essential. If the overdose was recent, a healthcare provider may "pump" the stomach, induce vomiting, or administer activated charcoal to prevent the body from absorbing the medication. An antidote (naloxone
) may be administered to counteract some of the overdose effects. Seizure
medications may also be given to help prevent or control any seizures
that might occur.
Treatment will also involve supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose.
