Precautions

Use with caution in patients with known allergies or with a history of allergic reactions to drugs. If a sensitivity reaction occurs such as urticaria, redness, or itching of the skin, the drug should be stopped. There have been reports of liver damage associated with the use of chlorzoxazone-containing products. If any symptoms suggestive of liver dysfunction are observed, the drug should be discontinued. Acetazone Forte should be used with caution in patients with severe impairment of renal function. Occupational hazards: Drowsiness can occur with the use of Acetazone Forte. Patients using this drug should be cautioned about driving a car or operating potentially hazardous machinery if they become drowsy or show impaired mental or physical abilities while taking this medication. Drug interactions: Patients receiving antipsychotics, antianxiety agents or other CNS depressants (including alcohol) concomitantly with this drug may exhibit an additive CNS depression. When such combined therapy is contemplated, the dose of one or both agents should be reduced. Avoid consumption of alcohol while using this product. Pregnancy. Should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. Lactation: Chlorzoxazone and acetarninophen is not recommended during lactation because safety in nursing mothers has not been established. It is not known if chlorzoxazone is excreted in breast milk. Acetaminophen passes into breast milk but is not likely to have an adverse effect on the infant at therapeutic doses. Children: Because safety and effectiveness have not been established in children such use is not recommended.
