19 Habits That Wreck Your Teeth

PRECAUTIONS: Tell the doctor your medical history, including: any allergies, heart disease, lung problems (e.g., asthma, COPD), nerve-muscle conditions (e.g., myasthenia gravis, Eaton-Lambert syndrome), kidney or liver disorders, electrolyte imbalances (e.g., hypokalemia, hypermagnesemia, hypercalcemia), adrenal gland problems (e.g., Addison's disease), cancer. A preservative (benzyl alcohol) which may be found in this product or in the liquid used to mix this product (diluent) can infrequently cause serious problems (sometimes death), if given in large amounts (more than 100 mg/kg daily) to an infant during the first months of life (neonatal period). The risk is also greater with low birth weight infants. Symptoms include sudden gasping, low blood pressure, or a very slow heartbeat. Report these symptoms to the doctor immediately should they occur. If possible, a preservative-free product should be used when treating neonates. Children 7 weeks to 1 year of age are more sensitive to the effects of this medication. Use cautiously. This medication should be used only when clearly needed during pregnancy. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. It is not known whether this drug passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
