Lamisil Overdose

As with any drug, it's possible to take too much Lamisil. Signs of a Lamisil overdose may include nausea, dizziness, and stomach pain, among other things. A recent overdose may be treated with certain medications or by "pumping" the person's stomach. Other treatments may include supportive care. Be sure to seek medical attention immediately if you happen to overdose on Lamisil.
