Because thiotepa is given by a healthcare provider in a healthcare setting, an intentional overdose is unlikely. However, an overdosage can be dangerous, so it is important to seek immediate medical attention if you believe you may have been given too much thiotepa.
Brand-name thiotepa (sold under the name Thioplex) was previously made by Immunex. However, Immunex no longer makes this product. Currently, this medication is only available in generic form. Generic thiotepa is made by Bedford Laboratories.
This medication is available in one strength and form: Thiotepa 15 mg per vial injection.
