Seek emergency medical attention if you think you have used too much of this medicine.
An overdose of polycarbophil is not likely to produce life-threatening side effects.
Since polycarbophil is usually taken as needed, you will not be on a long-term dosing schedule. If you are taking the medication daily for up to 7 days, take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, wait until then to take the medicine and skip the missed dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.
There may be other drugs that can interact with polycarbophil. Tell your doctor about all your prescription and over-the-counter medications, vitamins, minerals, herbal products, and drugs prescribed by other doctors. Do not start a new medication without telling your doctor.
