Antihistamines


A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.

Antihistamines are drugs that inhibit the action of histamine in the body by blocking the receptors of histamine. There are two types of histamine receptors H1 and H2. When H1 receptors are stimulated by histamine it may produce allergic reactions such as itching, hay fever and rash or hives.

Antihistamines treat the symptoms of allergic reactions. Some antihistamines are sedating and although some are classed as non-sedating antihistamines, they may still cause drowsiness in some people.

Read all of this leaflet carefully before you start taking this medicine. Keep this leaflet. You may need to read it again. If you have any further questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. This medicine has been prescribed for you. Do not pass it on to others. It may harm them, even if their symptoms are the same as yours. If any of the side effects get serious, or if you notice any side effects not listed in this leaflet, please tell your doctor or pharmacist. In this leaflet: 1. What Heminevrin Syrup is and what it is used for 2. Before you take Heminevrin Syrup 3. How to take Heminevrin Syrup 4. Possible side effects 5. How to store Heminevrin Syrup 6. Further information What Heminevrin Syrup is and what it is used for

Heminevrin Syrup contains a medicine called clomethiazole. This belongs to a group of medicines called hypnotics and sedatives. It has a calming (sedative) effect on your nervous system.

Heminevrin Syrup is used to:

Treat feelings of restlessness and agitation. Help you if you are unable to sleep (short-term treatment). Relieve the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal. Before you take Heminevrin Syrup Do not take Heminevrin Syrup if: You are allergic (hypersensitive) to clomethiazole or any of the other ingredients in Heminevrin Syrup (see Section 6: Further information). You have lung or breathing problems which have recently got worse.

Do not take Heminevrin Syrup if any of the above apply to you. If you are not sure, talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking Heminevrin Syrup.

Take special care with Heminevrin Syrup

Check with your doctor or pharmacist before taking Heminevrin Syrup if:

You often have difficulty in breathing. You have a condition called ‘sleep apnoea syndrome’ (interrupted breathing when you are asleep). You have ever had liver or kidney problems.

If you are not sure if any of the above apply to you, talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking Heminevrin Syrup.

Taking other medicines

Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking, or have recently taken, any other medicines. This includes medicines that you buy without a prescription and herbal medicines. This is because Heminevrin Syrup can affect the way some medicines work and some medicines can have an effect on Heminevrin Syrup.

In particular, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking any of the following:

Propranolol (for high blood pressure). Diazoxide (for low blood pressure or low blood sugar). Cimetidine (for stomach ulcers or heartburn). Carbamazepine (for anxiety, epilepsy, mood swings or a painful condition of the face called ‘trigeminal neuralgia’). Taking Heminevrin Syrup with food and drink Do not drink alcohol while you are taking Heminevrin Syrup. If you are taking Heminevrin Syrup to help with alcohol problems, you must tell your doctor if you have recently had a drink containing alcohol. Pregnancy and breast-feeding

Talk to your doctor before taking Heminevrin Syrup if you are pregnant, may become pregnant or are breast-feeding. Your doctor will decide whether you can take Heminevrin Syrup during this time.

If you are pregnant or breast-feeding and you are already taking diazoxide (a medicine to treat low blood pressure or low blood sugar), do not take Heminevrin Syrup.

Driving and using machines

Do not drive or use any tools or machines while taking Heminevrin Syrup. This is because the medicine can make you feel drowsy (sleepy).

Important information about some of the ingredients of Heminevrin Syrup Heminevrin Syrup contains small amounts of alcohol (ethanol). It contains less than 100 mg per dose. Heminevrin Syrup contains sorbitol. If you have been told by your doctor that you cannot tolerate or digest some sugars (have an intolerance to some sugars), talk to your doctor before taking this medicine. One ml of Heminevrin Syrup contains 350 mg of sorbitol. When taken as recommended, each dose contains up to 7 g of sorbitol. It can cause stomach upset and diarrhoea. How to take Heminevrin Syrup

Always take Heminevrin Syrup exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.

The instructions on the label will remind you of what the doctor said. They will tell you how much syrup to take and how often. Do not take more than you have been told to.

Adults

The usual dose of Heminevrin Syrup depends on what you are taking it for.

To help you to sleep at night, the usual dose is one to two 5 ml spoonfuls before bed. Your doctor will give you this medicine for a short period of time. To stop you feeling restless or agitated, the usual dose is one 5 ml spoonful three times a day. To help you to withdraw from alcohol, your doctor will start you on a high dose. Your doctor will then gradually reduce the dose. Do not take Heminevrin Syrup for longer than your doctor has told you to. The maximum amount of time is usually 9 days.

If you have liver or kidney problems, the dose depends on how well your kidneys are working. Your doctor may start you on a low dose and gradually increase it.

Your doctor may prescribe Heminevrin Syrup for longer than the usual time period. With longer term use your doctor may need to increase your dose to get the same effect. If you take more than the usual dose for a long period of time, when you stop taking the medicine, you may get withdrawal symptoms such as shaking (tremors) or fits.

Children

Heminevrin Syrup should not be taken by children.

If you take more Heminevrin Syrup than you should

If you take too much Heminevrin Syrup, talk to a doctor or go to a hospital straight away. Take the medicine bottle or carton with you so that it can be identified. The following effects may happen: shallow breathing, low blood pressure (this may make you feel dizzy or faint), low body temperature and coma (being unconscious).

If you forget to take Heminevrin Syrup

If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember it. However, if it is nearly time for the next dose, skip the missed dose. Do not take a double dose (two doses at the same time) to make up for a forgotten dose.

Heminevrin Syrup Side Effects

Like all medicines, Heminevrin Syrup can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.

Severe allergic reactions (these are rare, affecting less than 1 in 1,000 people)

If you have a severe allergic reaction, stop taking Heminevrin Syrup and see a doctor straight away. You may need urgent medical treatment. The signs may include a sudden onset of:

Rash, itching or hives on the skin. Blistering of the skin. Swelling of the face, lips, tongue or other parts of the body. Shortness of breath, wheezing or trouble breathing.
