Leukemia Home > Tabloid Overdose
Some of the complications that may occur as a result of an overdose with Tabloid (thioguanine) include vomiting, infections, and dangerous bleeding problems. A person's specific symptoms, however, will depend on how much of the drug was taken and a number of other factors. Treating this type of overdose may involve administering certain medications, performing blood transfusions, and providing supportive care.
- General feelings of illness or discomfort
- Low blood pressure (hypotension)
- Low red blood cells (anemia)
- Low white blood cells, which could increase the risk for infections
- Low platelets, which could increase the risk for internal bleeding
- Kidney problems.
- Close monitoring of blood cell counts
- Antibiotics if an infection occurs
- A blood transfusion if bleeding occurs.
