What If I Take an Overdose of Azelastine?

In most instances, an overdose of azelastine is unlikely to cause serious problems. Even using an entire bottle at once is not likely to cause serious overdose symptoms. However, an extremely large dose may cause problems.

If you forget to take your azelastine dose, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
 

Is There a Generic Version of Azelastine?
