He suffers from the nervous system - there are convulsions, delirium, if the patient is not just help, it develops a coma.
Regidron comprises potassium salt, which is largely confined to cells and tissues of the sodium present in the intercellular space. The right balance between potassium and sodium support the normal osmotic pressure in the tissues, restores muscle tissue - the patient becomes more active, decreased heart rate, blood pressure is stabilized, are signs of intoxication. With contained in rehydron
Regidron - will help restore the water-salt balance
sodium citrate restored acid-base balance.
Before you start taking rehydron solution, it is desirable to weigh in (if available) - according to how quickly will decrease the weight of the body, the doctor will prescribe a daily dose of the drug. It will be equal to double the volume of the weight loss in milliliters. For example, the patient had lost 300 g body weight, means must drink 600 ml within the first 6-10 hours.

Dizziness - if the ground is slipping from under his feet
, Incoordination, confusion, convulsions, coma.

Symptoms of alkalosis are muscle twitching and convulsions.
If the patient were slight signs of overdose rehydron, then simply stop taking it. If symptoms of dosage increase, the correction of water-salt metabolism is possible only in a hospital under laboratory control.
