Treatment for a Mustargen Overdose

Usually, repeated blood transfusions are needed to treat a Mustargen overdose. During a blood transfusion, healthy blood is given through a needle inserted into a vein. Blood transfusions can help replace lost blood from bleeding, or restore blood cells to the blood.
 
Treatment will also involve supportive care, which consists of treating any symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose. For example, antibiotics may be used to treat infections that occur. Dialysis is not expected to be useful for removing Mustargen from the body.
 
It is important that you seek prompt medical attention if you believe you may have overdosed on this medication.
