Warnings Levotuss Syrup 30 mg/5 ml Levodropropizina 200 ml

The observation that the pharmacokinetic profiles of levodropropizine are not markedly altered in the elderly suggests that dose corrections or modifications of the intervals between administrations may not be required in the elderly. However, in light of the evidence that sensitivity to various drugs is impaired in the elderly, special caution should be exercised when levodropropizine is administered to elderly patients. Levotuss syrup should be used with caution in patients with severe renal impairment (creatinine clearance below 35 ml/min). It is advisable to use caution even in case of simultaneous intake of sedative drugs in particularly sensitive individuals. This medicinal product contains 4 g of sucrose per dose (10 ml): patients with rare hereditary problems of fructose intolerance, glucose-galactose malabsorption or sucrase-isomaltase insufficiency should not take this medicinal product.

To be taken into consideration for administration to subjects with diabetes mellitus. The medicine contains methyl parahydroxybenzoate and propyl parahydroxybenzoate, which are known to cause hives. In general, para-hydroxybenzoates can cause delayed reactions such as contact dermatitis and rarely immediate reactions with urticaria and bronchospasm. Antitussive drugs such as Levotuss syrup are symptomatic and should only be used pending diagnosis of the triggering cause and/or the effect of the therapy of the underlying disease. In the absence of information on the effect of food intake on drug absorption, it is advisable to take the drug away from meals. Levotuss syrup does not contain gluten; therefore it can be administered to patients with celiac disease.

Teratogenesis, reproduction and fertility studies as well as peri and post natal studies did not reveal any specific toxic effects.
