L-Theanine Overdose

It is not known exactly what to expect from an L-theanine overdose or whether an overdose is even possible. The effects of an overdose would probably vary for each person, depending on how much of the supplement was taken. It is also not known how to best treat an overdose of L-theanine. Overdose treatment may involve certain medications, getting the stomach "pumped," or supportive care.

Effects of an L-Theanine Overdose

Very little is known about the possible effects of an L-theanine overdose. In fact, very little is known about L-theanine side effects in general, even at normal doses. At this point, it is not possible to predict the effects of an L-theanine overdose, whether such effects would be mild or serious, or even if an L-theanine overdose is possible.
 

Treatment for an L-Theanine Overdose

Just as it is not known what to expect from an L-theanine overdose, it is also not known how to best treat an overdose of L-theanine. If the overdose was recent, your healthcare provider may give certain medicines or place a tube into the stomach to "pump the stomach." Treatment (if necessary) will also involve supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms 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 L-theanine.
