Stendra Overdose

Possible symptoms of an overdose with Stendra (avanafil) may include dizziness, nausea, and high blood pressure. The specific effects would depend on how much was taken and whether it was combined with other medications. If an overdose occurs, a healthcare provider may administer activated charcoal, "pump" the stomach, or provide supportive care to treat any associated symptoms.

Dialysis is not expected to be useful for removing Stendra from the body.
 
It is important that you seek medical attention immediately if you believe that you or someone else may have taken a Stendra overdose.
