Warnings and Precautions
Please talk to your pharmacist before taking this medicine:
- if you are hypersensitive to other painkillers (analgesics) / anti-inflammatories (antiphlogistics) / certain medicines for rheumatism (antirheumatics) or other allergy-causing substances;
- if you have allergies (e.g. with skin reactions, itching, nettle fever), asthma, hay fever, swelling of the nasal mucosa (nasal polyps) or chronic respiratory diseases;
- with simultaneous treatment with anticoagulant drugs;
- if you have a history of gastric or intestinal ulcers or gastrointestinal bleeding;
- with impaired liver function;
- if you have impaired kidney function or reduced heart and vascular blood flow (e.g. vascular disease of the kidneys, heart muscle weakness, reduction in blood volume, major surgery, blood poisoning or heavy bleeding): acetylsalicylic acid can further increase the risk of kidney dysfunction and acute kidney failure;
- before operations (including minor procedures such as tooth extraction); there may be an increased tendency to bleed. Please tell your doctor or dentist if you have taken this medicine
- in patients with severe glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency: acetylsalicylic acid can cause accelerated breakdown or disintegration of red blood cells or a certain form of anemia. This risk can be due to factors such as B. high dosage, fever or acute infections.
- If painkillers are taken over the long term, headaches can occur, which can lead to taking them again, which in turn can cause the headaches to persist.
- The habitual use of painkillers can lead to permanent kidney damage with the risk of kidney failure (analgesic nephropathy). This risk is particularly high if you take several different painkillers in combination.
- Acetylsalicylic acid reduces uric acid excretion in low doses. In patients who are at risk, this can possibly trigger a gout attack.
children and young people
- The drug should only be used in children and adolescents with febrile illnesses on medical advice and only if other measures are ineffective. Prolonged vomiting associated with these conditions may be a sign of Reye's Syndrome, a very rare but life-threatening condition that requires immediate medical attention.
- Please talk to your pharmacist before taking this medicine:
Driving and using machines
