Overdose by the recommended route of administration is considered unlikely. Ingestion may cause nausea and vomiting. Toxic symptoms include dyspnoea and cyanosis, possibly leading to asphyxia. Depression of the central nervous system, hypotension and coma may also occur.
Treatment of poisoning is symptomatic. Demulcents and diluents may be given if necessary but emesis and lavage should be avoided. Activated charcoal may be considered if the patient presents within an hour of ingestion.
