OVERDOSAGE

Doses titrated up to 300 mg once daily have been safely administered to patients on dialysis. Overdosage of Sensipar® may lead to hypocalcemia. In the event of overdosage, patients should be monitored for signs and symptoms of hypocalcemia and appropriate measures taken to correct serum calcium levels (see PRECAUTIONS).  

Since Sensipar® is highly protein bound, hemodialysis is not an effective treatment for overdosage of Sensipar®.

Sensipar® is contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity to any component(s) of this product.
