Qoliana Overdose

It is unknown exactly what to expect from overdosing on Qoliana. Problems are more likely to occur if this medication is taken by mouth, which might occur with children or pets. Depending on how the medicine was taken, treatment options may include administering certain medications, pumping the stomach, or providing supportive care.

Can You Use Too Much Qoliana?

Qoliana® (brimonidine tartrate) is a prescription eye drop approved to treat glaucoma or high eye pressure. It belongs to a group of medications known as alpha adrenergic agonists. As with most medicines, it is probably possible to use too much Qoliana.
 
The specific effects of an overdose can vary, depending on a number of factors, including the Qoliana dosage and how it was taken (by mouth or as an eye drop).
 

Effects of an Overdose

Taking the drops by mouth, as might happen with a child or a pet, is probably more likely to cause serious problems than taking the drops as intended (in the eyes). However, it is not clear what exactly may happen as the result of a Qoliana overdose.
 

Treatment for a Qoliana Overdose

The treatment for an overdose with Qoliana will vary. If the overdose was recent and taken by mouth, a healthcare provider may administer certain medicines or "pump the stomach" to help reduce the amount of the medication absorbed into the bloodstream. Treatment would also likely involve supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose.
 
It is important that you seek medical attention immediately if you believe that you or someone else may have used too much Qoliana.
