What happens if I overdose on anidulafungin?

Scientists gave rats high doses of anidulafungin, about 10 times the normal human dose. The high doses did not kill the rats. In humans, there have been cases where some patients were accidentally given a high dose of anidulafungin (twice the initial dose and four times the daily dose). The patients showed no problems and tolerated the drug well. If you think that you or someone else may have taken too much anidulafungin, call your local poison control center at 1-800-222-1222 or 911. Be sure you understand your doctor's instructions for using this medication.
