- Uncommonly less than 1 in 100 but more than 1 in 1000 people treated

General disorders and administration site conditions:
- Rare: Severe immediate allergic reaction with signs of shock.
- Shock is a very rare event. It can be expressed in varying degrees by the following warning signs: cold sweat, shortness of breath, dizziness, nausea, drowsiness.

Taking the medicine with other medicines
- Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking/using, have recently taken/used or might take/use any other medicines.
- If the medicine is taken at the same time as warfarin, the effect of warfarin is weakened by reducing the time it takes for blood to clot.
- If the medicine is used for a long time with enzyme-inducing substances such as e.g. phenytoin, carbamazepine, barbiturates, spironolactone or rifampicin, the duration of action of phenazone may be shortened.
- Used concomitantly with cimetidine and/or disulfiram and beta-blockers such as B. propranolol, with calcium antagonists such as verapamil or diltiazem, with antiarrhythmics such as amiodarone, with oral contraceptives or ketoconazole, the degradation and / or elimination of phenazone is slowed down. As with fever, there is the possibility of accumulation (increase in the concentration of phenazone in the blood).
The medicine must not be taken
- if you are allergic to phenazone, pyrazolones and phenylbutazone or any of the other ingredients,
- if you have a genetically determined glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency (hereditary disease with a risk of dissolving the red blood cells),
- in acute hepatic porphyria (hereditary disease with impaired formation of the red blood pigment),
- during pregnancy and lactation.
- The drug is not suitable for infants and children under the age of 12. Furthermore, there are no findings for this age group, which is why the preparation must not be used in these children.
pregnancy and breast feeding period
- If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking this medicine.
- Since there is no experience with the use of the drug during pregnancy and the active substance passes into breast milk, the drug must not be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
- Please talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking this medicine.
- Patients in whom damage to the blood count has already been determined should only use the drug under medical supervision of the blood count.
Patients with known allergies or certain diseases with a possible allergic cause (also in the past) are more prone to a shock reaction (sudden circulatory collapse). This particularly affects patients with:
- Bronchial asthma (attacks of shortness of breath due to narrowing of the smallest airways) and chronic (long-lasting) inflammation of the airways,
- Pain and rheumatic drug allergy (analgesic intolerance) or allergy to other drugs,
- Allergy to foods, preservatives, alcoholic beverages as well
- Allergy to fur or hair dyes.
- Patients with these diseases should only use the drug under medical supervision.
- In the elderly and in patients with acute liver damage, the dosage should be based on the lower recommended limit, because the effect of the drug is stronger and lasts longer in these patients.
Ability to drive and use machines
- There are no special features to consider.
