Some of these reactions have occurred rarely, and in many instances the exact causal relationships have not been established. Also reported, a worsening of pre-existing narcolepsy - a casual relationship is uncertain. Should overdosage lead to hypotension, support of cardiovascular system is of first importance. Restoration of blood pressure and normalisation of heart rate may be accomplished by keeping the patient in the supine position. If this measure is inadequate, shock should first be treated with volume expanders. If necessary, vasopressors including angiotension should then be used. Renal function should be monitored and supported as needed. Laboratory data indicate Hypovase is not dialysable because it is protein bound
