The treatment for this type of overdose will vary. If the Lidoderm 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." Activated charcoal may be given to limit absorption of the medication. Treatment will also involve supportive care, which would include treating any of the overdose symptoms that occur (such as seizures).
It is important that you seek medical attention immediately if you believe that you or someone else may have overdosed on Lidoderm.
