What Should I Tell My Healthcare Provider?
You should talk with your healthcare provider prior to taking Aloxi if you:
- Have any allergies, including allergies to food, dyes, or preservatives
- Are pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant (see Aloxi and Pregnancy)
- Are breastfeeding (see Aloxi and Breastfeeding).
Make sure to tell your healthcare provider about all other medicines you are taking, including prescription and non-prescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.

It is not known exactly what to expect from an Aloxi overdose. In studies, doses up to six times the normal dose were used without causing any problems, other than the usual side effects of Aloxi. Extremely large doses (equivalent to 947 times the usual dose) of this drug are lethal to rats and mice, causing seizures, gasping, and death.
There is no known antidote for Aloxi, and the drug is unlikely to be removed from the body using dialysis.
If you happen to overdose on Aloxi, seek immediate medical attention.
Aloxi injection should be stored at your healthcare provider's office or facility. It should be stored at room temperature away from light. Store the capsules at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Be sure to keep the medicine in an airtight container.
Keep Aloxi and all other medications out of the reach of children.
