Symptoms of a Hyzaar overdose can include an increased heart rate, dizziness, and vomiting. If you think you have overdosed on Hyzaar, seek medical attention immediately. If the Hyzaar overdose was recent, a healthcare provider may use certain medicines to increase blood pressure or pump your stomach. However, there is no readily available treatment that can remove Hyzaar quickly once it has been absorbed into the body.
