Precautions for Use
In susceptible persons, pseudoephedrine may provoke acute glaucoma, symptoms of which include bloodshot, sore and painful eyes with blurred vision. In such cases, an urgent consultation with an ophthalmologist is crucial.
Decongestant vasoconstrictors can increase heart rate (a condition known as tachycardia) and provoke palpitations and nausea. If these side effects are heavily pronounced, treatment must be discontinued.
Rarely, these effects can also cause complications such as convulsions, hallucinations and unusual restlessness (particularly in cases of excessive dosage).
Do not exceed the recommended dose.
If you have an over-active thyroid, heart disease, diabetes, mental disorder, kidney dysfunction or (if you are elderly, and particularly if you have chronic constipation) a tendency towards disorientation or drops in blood pressure, it is advisable to consult your doctor before taking this medicine.
Do not use this medicine with other medicines containing paracetamol – such combinations create a risk of an excessive dose, which can be harmful to the liver.
While taking this medicine, avoid alcohol – it increases your susceptibility to drowsiness.
