Treatment for an Erbitux Overdose

Because so little is known about the effects of an Erbitux overdose, it is also unknown exactly how this situation would be treated. The medication will be stopped if the overdose is caught before the entire dose is given. In addition, treatment will involve supportive care, which consists of treating any symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose.
 
It is important that you seek prompt medical attention if you believe that you or someone else may have received too much Erbitux.
