Pregnancy and lactation
Due to the lack of data on excretion in breast milk, treatment with DETRALEX during breast-feeding should be avoided. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking any medicine.
Driving and using machines
DETRALEX has no influence on the ability to drive and use machines.
Like all medicines, DETRALEX can cause side effects, although not everybody gets it. Rare cases of mild gastric disorders, neurovegetative disorders and skin reactions (rash, severe itching, urticaria) have been reported that do not require discontinuation of treatment.
