Talwin Nx Overdose

Treatment for a Talwin Nx Overdose

If the overdose was recent and taken by mouth, a healthcare provider may "pump the stomach" to help reduce the amount of the medication that is absorbed into the bloodstream. A narcotic antidote, such as naloxone (Narcan®), may be given as an injection to counteract the overdose effects.
Treatment will also involve supportive care, which consists of treating symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose. Examples of supportive treatment for a Talwin Nx overdose may include:
  • Intravenous (IV) fluids
  • Oxygen treatment
  • Anti-seizure medications if seizures occur.
It is important to seek immediate medical attention if you believe that you or someone else may have taken too much of this drug.
