Veregen Overdose

It is not exactly clear what to expect if you use too much Veregen (sinecatechins). However, if too much of this medicine is applied to the skin, it may increase your risk for severe skin reactions, such as severe swelling or skin ulceration. Treatment options for this type of overdose may include providing supportive care and pumping the stomach if the medication was taken by mouth.

Can I Use Too Much Veregen?

Veregen® (sinecatechins) is a prescription medication approved to treat perianal or genital warts. As with most medications, it is probably possible to use too much. The specific effects of an overdose with Veregen could potentially be dangerous, but would vary, depending on a number of factors, including the Veregen dosage and how it was taken (applied to the skin or taken by mouth).

Effects of an Overdose

The prescribing information for this medication does not list any information about possible overdoses. Other than skin irritation and the other usual Veregen side effects, it is unknown what to expect in the case of an overdose. Make sure to keep this medication out of the reach of children.  
Because Veregen, even at normal doses, usually causes skin reactions, it is expected that applying too much to the skin will increase the risk of severe skin reactions, such as skin ulceration or severe swelling. Make sure to follow your Veregen dosage instructions carefully.

Treatment for a Veregen Overdose

If the Veregen overdose was recent and taken by mouth, a healthcare provider may administer certain medicines to induce vomiting or place a tube into the stomach to "pump the stomach." Treatment will also involve supportive care, which would include treating any of the overdose symptoms that occur.
It is important that you seek medical attention immediately if you believe that you or someone else may have used too much Veregen.
