German to English translations [PRO]
Medical - Medical: Pharmaceuticals / active ingredients
German term or phrase: zuzüglich Überdosierun
This is from a list of active ingredients in the marketing authorisation letter for ear drops.
from 1983.
One ingredient is marked with *, and the explanation reads: "zuzüglich Überdosierung 2 mg". I am not sure if "overdose" would be the correct translation here.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I haven't seen any sources using the same wording but would be a simple way of expressing the idea from my non-expert perspective

Overdose is a term usually used for systemic drugs. Topical drugs can be used in excess. Here, it means you can drop a dose excess of (up to) 2 mg.
