An Overview of a Desogen Overdose
(desogestrel/ethinyl estradiol) is a birth control pill
that is only available by prescription. The effects of a Desogen overdose will vary depending on a number of factors, including the Desogen dosage
and whether it was taken with any other substances, medications, or street drugs.
If you happen to overdose on Desogen, seek immediate medical attention.
Desogen Overdose Effects
As with any birth control pill, an overdose with Desogen may cause nausea and vomiting. In females (even in young girls), an overdose of Desogen may cause vaginal bleeding. In cases of children inadvertently taking large doses of birth control pills, no serious problems have been reported.
Treatment for a Desogen Overdose
It is not known how best to treat a Desogen overdose. Therefore, treatment (if necessary) will involve supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose. In many cases, treatment may not be necessary (although medical attention is still needed to rule out any problems).
Even though a Desogen overdose is unlikely to cause serious problems, it is important that you seek medical attention immediately if you believe that you or someone else may have overdosed on Desogen.
