Leukemia Home > Rituxan Overdose

Treatment Options

Because so little is known about the effects of a Rituxan overdose, it is also not clear how to treat this problem. Therefore, treatment will likely involve supportive care, such as:
 
  • Careful monitoring of white blood cells
  • Careful monitoring for signs and symptoms of an infection
  • Other treatments based on the complications that occur.
     
It is important that you seek medical attention immediately if you believe that you may have received too much Rituxan.
