There is no clinical syndrome associated with an overdosage of cromolyn sodium . In several animal species acute toxicity with cromolyn sodium occurs only with very high exposure levels. No deaths occurred at the highest oral doses tested in mice, 8,000 mg/kg (approximately 5,100 and 2,700 times the maximum recommended daily inhalation doses in adults and children, respectively, on a mg/m 2 basis) or in rats, 8,000 mg/kg (approximately 10,000 and 5,400 times the maximum recommended daily inhalation doses in adults and children, respectively, on a mg/m 2 basis).
