4.2       Posology and method of administration

Renal impairment

For patients with moderate to severe renal impairment (creatinine clearance ³ 10 to < 50 ml/min), the recommended initial dose of INVEGA is 1.5 mg 3 mg every other day, which may be increased to 3 mg once daily after clinical reassessment. As INVEGA has not been studied in patients with creatinine clearance below 10 ml/min, use is not recommended in such patients.

4.9       Overdose

 

In general, expected signs and symptoms are those resulting from an exaggeration of paliperidone’s known pharmacological effects, i.e., drowsiness and sedation, tachycardia and hypotension, QT prolongation, and extrapyramidal symptoms. Torsade de pointes and ventricular fibrillation have been reported in association with overdose. In the case of acute overdosage, the possibility of multiple medicinal product involvement should be considered.

 

Consideration should be given to the prolonged-release nature of the product when assessing treatment needs and recovery. There is no specific antidote to paliperidone. General supportive measures should be employed. Establish and maintain a clear airway and ensure adequate oxygenation and ventilation. Cardiovascular monitoring should commence immediately and should include continuous electrocardiographic monitoring for possible arrhythmias. Hypotension and circulatory collapse should be treated with appropriate measures such as intravenous fluid and/or sympathomimetic agents. Gastric lavage (after intubation if the patient is unconscious) and a Administration of activated charcoal together with a laxative should be considered. In case of severe extrapyramidal symptoms, anticholinergic agents should be administered. Close supervision and monitoring should continue until the patient recovers.
