Naftin Overdose

Although it is possible to use too much Naftin (naftifine), there have not been any reports of an overdose on this drug. It is theoretically possible that a large enough amount could be absorbed through the skin to cause problems. An overdose may also occur if the medicine is swallowed. Treatment would likely include supportive care to treat any symptoms that occur.

Can You Use Too Much Naftin?

Naftin® (naftifine) is a prescription medication approved to treat certain fungal infections. As with most medications, it is probably possible to use too much Naftin.
 
The specific effects of an overdose will vary, depending on a number of factors, including the Naftin dosage and how it was taken (applied to the skin or taken by mouth).
 

Effects of an Overdose

The effects of a Naftin overdose are largely unknown, as there have not been any reported cases. Although the amount of naftifine absorbed through the skin is quite low, it is at least theoretically possible that enough of the drug could be absorbed to cause problems. An oral overdose might be more likely to cause problems, although it is unknown what problems might occur.
 

Treatment for a Naftin Overdose

Treatment for an overdose with Naftin, if necessary, will involve supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose. Of course, treatment will also involve stopping the drug, at least temporarily.
 
Although a Naftin overdose is not likely to be extremely dangerous, except in unusual circumstances, it is always important to seek immediate medical attention if you or someone else may have used too much.
