What should I do if I have an accidental overdose of Levemir?

Never intentionally double dose Levemir (insulin detemir). If you or someone you know accidentally overdoses on Levemir, call the poison control center at 1-800-222-1222 or contact 911 immediately. If the individual has collapsed or has stopped breathing, call 911. Blood glucose levels can fall to life-threatening levels if someone has too much of this diabetes medication in his or her system. Symptoms of serious hypoglycemia (severely low blood glucose) include difficulty speaking, confusion, shaking, seizures, pain in the stomach, blurry vision, sweating, weakness, or coma.
