If you take more Desmotabs 0.2mg than you should, talk to your doctor or pharmacist immediately.

Do not take Desmotabs 0.2mg:

  • if you have a serious heart or kidney disease
  • if you are taking diuretics (water tablets)
  • if you are under 5 or over 65 years old
  • if you are taking medication for high blood pressure or have been told that your blood pressure is abnormal
  • if you drink unusually large quantities of fluids, including alcohol

Please consult your doctor before taking Desmotabs 0.2mg:

  • if you are taking a medicine for pain and/or inflammation containing non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (also known as NSAIDs) e.g. indomethacin
  • if you are taking a medicine containing loperamide, for diarrhoea
  • if you have a medical condition causing fluid and/or electrolyte imbalance
  • if you have a medical condition that could be made worse by fluid and/or electrolyte disturbance.

While you are on treatment with Desmotabs 0.2mg, avoid excessive fluid intake as this may lead to a build up of water in the body. In addition:

  • fluid intake must be limited to a minimum from 1 hour before taking the dose at bedtime until the following morning (and, in any case, for at least 8 hours)
  • stop taking Desmotabs when suffering from vomiting and/or diarrhoea until you are better
  • avoid swallowing water while swimming to prevent a build up of water in the body.

Pregnancy:

If you are pregnant or planning a pregnancy, please inform your doctor before you take Desmotabs 0.2mg as blood pressure monitoring is recommended due to the increased risk of pre-eclampsia.

Symptoms of pre-eclampsia include high blood pressure, oedema (swelling due to the build up of fluid) and proteinuria (protein in the urine).

If you are breast-feeding ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking Desmotabs 0.2mg.

Please inform your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken or used any other medicines – even those not prescribed.

Most people taking Desmotabs 0.2mg find it causes them no problems. Side effects include headache, stomach pain and nausea. Isolated cases of allergic skin reactions and more severe general allergic reactions have been reported. Very rare cases of emotional disorders including aggression in children have been reported.

If you experience one or more of these side effects or any other undesirable effects, please inform your doctor or pharmacist.
