Allergies Home > More Info on Palgic Safety
Warnings and precautions to be aware of prior to taking Palgic include the following:
- Palgic can cause blurred vision, dizziness, and drowsiness. Be sure to see how Palgic affects you before driving or operating heavy machinery. However, it should be noted that sometimes children react in an opposite manner, experiencing hyperactivity instead of drowsiness.
- Palgic can worsen stomach ulcers, GERD, glaucoma, or an enlarged prostate. If you have one of these conditions, do not take Palgic without checking with your healthcare provider first.
- Elderly individuals may be more susceptible to the side effects of Palgic (and may also be more likely to be taking medications that interact with Palgic). If you are over 60 years old, it is best to check with your healthcare provider before taking Palgic. Palgic can worsen many conditions common in the elderly (such as an enlarged prostate or Alzheimer's disease).
- Palgic can cause breathing problems in people with asthma. If you have asthma, check with your healthcare provider before taking Palgic.
- Make sure to check with your healthcare provider before taking Palgic if you have hyperthyroidism, any heart problems (including heart disease), or high blood pressure, as it is possible that Palgic could worsen these conditions.
- Palgic may interact with a number of other medications (see Palgic Drug Interactions).
- Palgic is considered a pregnancy Category C medication. This means that it may not be safe for use during pregnancy, although the full risks are currently unknown (see Palgic and Pregnancy for more information).
