Menopause Home > DIM Overdose
Not much is known about the potential symptoms and effects of a DIM (diindolylmethane) overdose. Since the supplement can affect the balance of estrogen in the body, however, an overdose could potentially cause vaginal bleeding or a disruption of the menstrual cycle. Treatment for a DIM overdose may involve "pumping the stomach," certain medications, or supportive care.
DIM (diindolylmethane) is a dietary supplement claimed to prevent cancer and treat various conditions. The effects of a DIM overdose will likely vary, depending on the dosage as well as other factors.
If you or some else happens to overdose on DIM, seek medical attention immediately.
Little is known about the possible symptoms and effects of a DIM overdose (or even how much DIM will cause an overdose). Because DIM may affect the balance of estrogen hormones, it is possible that a DIM overdose could cause vaginal bleeding or spotting or a disruption of the menstrual cycle. Other currently unknown effects are also possible.
It is not known how to best treat a DIM overdose. A healthcare provider may decide to "pump the stomach" or give medication to induce vomiting, although it is not known if these measures are helpful. Treatment (if necessary) will also involve supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms (if any) that occur as a result of the overdose.
It is important that you seek medical attention immediately if you believe that you may have overdosed on DIM.
