What is Cystospaz (hyoscyamine)?

Hyoscyamine produces many effects in the body, including relief from muscle spasms.

Hyoscyamine also reduces the fluid secretions of many organs and glands in the body, such as the stomach, pancreas, lungs, saliva glands, sweat glands, and nasal passages.

Hyoscyamine is used to treat many different stomach and intestinal disorders, including peptic ulcer and irritable bowel syndrome. It is also used to control muscle spasms in the bladder, kidneys, or digestive tract, and to reduce stomach acid. Hyoscyamine is sometimes used to reduce tremors and rigid muscles in people with symptoms of Parkinson's disease.

Hyoscyamine is also used as a drying agent to control excessive salivation, runny nose, or excessive sweating.

Hyoscyamine may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

What is the most important information I should know about Cystospaz (hyoscyamine)? Do not take hyoscyamine if you are allergic to it, or if you have kidney disease, a bladder or intestinal obstruction, severe ulcerative colitis, toxic megacolon, glaucoma, or myasthenia gravis.

Before taking hyoscyamine, tell your doctor if you have heart disease, congestive heart failure, a heart rhythm disorder, high blood pressure, overactive thyroid, or hiatal hernia with gastroesophageal reflux disease.

Anaspaz


Generic Name: hyoscyamine (hye oh SYE a meen)
Brand Names: Anaspaz, Cystospaz, Ed Spaz, HyoMax, HyoMax DT, HyoMax FT, HyoMax SL, HyoMax SR, Hyospaz, Hyosyne, IB-Stat, Levbid, Levsin, Levsin SL, Levsinex SR, NuLev, Nulev, Symax Duotab, Symax FasTab, Symax SL, Symax SR

What is Anaspaz (hyoscyamine)?

Hyoscyamine produces many effects in the body, including relief from muscle spasms.

Hyoscyamine also reduces the fluid secretions of many organs and glands in the body, such as the stomach, pancreas, lungs, saliva glands, sweat glands, and nasal passages.

Hyoscyamine is used to treat many different stomach and intestinal disorders, including peptic ulcer and irritable bowel syndrome. It is also used to control muscle spasms in the bladder, kidneys, or digestive tract, and to reduce stomach acid. Hyoscyamine is sometimes used to reduce tremors and rigid muscles in people with symptoms of Parkinson's disease.

Hyoscyamine is also used as a drying agent to control excessive salivation, runny nose, or excessive sweating.

Hyoscyamine may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

What is the most important information I should know about Anaspaz (hyoscyamine)? Do not take hyoscyamine if you are allergic to it, or if you have kidney disease, a bladder or intestinal obstruction, severe ulcerative colitis, toxic megacolon, glaucoma, or myasthenia gravis.

Before taking hyoscyamine, tell your doctor if you have heart disease, congestive heart failure, a heart rhythm disorder, high blood pressure, overactive thyroid, or hiatal hernia with gastroesophageal reflux disease.

Avoid taking antacids at the same time you take hyoscyamine. Antacids can make it harder for your body to absorb hyoscyamine. If you use an antacid, take it after you have taken hyoscyamine and eaten a meal.

Hyoscyamine may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be alert. Drinking alcohol can increase drowsiness and dizziness while you are taking hyoscyamine.

Avoid becoming overheated or dehydrated during exercise and in hot weather. Hyoscyamine can decrease sweating and you may be more prone to heat stroke.

What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before taking Anaspaz (hyoscyamine)? Do not take hyoscyamine if you are allergic to it, or if you have: kidney disease;

an enlarged prostate or problems with urination;

intestinal blockage;

severe ulcerative colitis, or toxic megacolon;

glaucoma; or

myasthenia gravis.

To make sure you can safely take hyoscyamine, tell your doctor if you have any of these other conditions:

heart disease, congestive heart failure;

a heart rhythm disorder;

high blood pressure;

overactive thyroid; or

hiatal hernia with GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease).

FDA pregnancy category C. It is not known whether hyoscyamine will harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant while using this medication. Hyoscyamine can pass into breast milk and may harm a nursing baby. Do not use this medication without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby. How should I take Anaspaz (hyoscyamine)?

Take exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label.

Your medication may come with patient instructions for safe and effective use. Follow these directions carefully. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.

Hyoscyamine is usually taken before a meal. Follow your doctor's instructions.

Do not crush, chew, or open an extended-release tablet or capsule. It is specially made to release medicine slowly in the body. Breaking or crushing the pill would cause too much of the drug to be released at one time. Your doctor may want you to break an extended-release tablet and take only half of it. Follow your doctor's instructions.

Measure the oral liquid form of hyoscyamine with a special dose-measuring spoon or cup, not a regular table spoon. If you do not have a dose-measuring device, ask your pharmacist for one.

The sublingual tablet form of this medication must be placed under the tongue, where it will dissolve. Do not swallow the sublingual tablet whole or wash it down with water. You may drink water after the pill has completely dissolved in your mouth.

Before using hyoscyamine oral spray for the first time, you must prime the spray pump. To do this, spray 3 test sprays into the air and away from your face. Prime the spray pump at least 1 test spray any time you have not used the oral spray for longer than 2 days. Spray until a fine mist appears.

After using the oral spray, try not to swallow right away. Do not rinse your mouth or spit for 5 to 10 minutes after using the oral spray.

atropine, hyoscyamine, methenamine, methylene blue, phenyl salicylate, and benzoic acid is available only with your doctor's prescription.

Before Using atropine, hyoscyamine, methenamine, methylene blue, phenyl salicylate, and benzoic acid

In deciding to use a medicine, the risks of taking the medicine must be weighed against the good it will do. This is a decision you and your doctor will make. For atropine, hyoscyamine, methenamine, methylene blue, phenyl salicylate, and benzoic acid, the following should be considered:

Allergies

Tell your doctor if you have ever had any unusual or allergic reaction to atropine, hyoscyamine, methenamine, methylene blue, phenyl salicylate, and benzoic acid or any other medicines. Also tell your health care professional if you have any other types of allergies, such as to foods, dyes, preservatives, or animals. For non-prescription products, read the label or package ingredients carefully.

Pediatric

Unusual excitement, nervousness, restlessness or irritability, and unusual warmth, dryness, and flushing of skin are more likely to occur in children, who are usually more sensitive to the effects of atropine and hyoscyamine (contained in this combination medicine). Also, when atropine and hyoscyamine are given to children during hot weather, a rapid increase in body temperature may occur. In infants and children, especially those with spastic paralysis or brain damage, atropine, hyoscyamine, methenamine, methylene blue, phenyl salicylate, and benzoic acid may be more likely to cause severe side effects.

Geriatric

Confusion or memory loss, constipation, difficult urination, excitement, agitation, drowsiness, or dryness of mouth may be more likely to occur in elderly patients, who are usually more sensitive than younger adults to the effects of atropine and hyoscyamine. Also, this combination medicine may cause eye pain in patients who have untreated glaucoma.

Pregnancy Pregnancy Category Explanation All Trimesters X Studies in animals or pregnant women have demonstrated positive evidence of fetal abnormalities. This drug should not be used in women who are or may become pregnant because the risk clearly outweighs any possible benefit. Breast Feeding Benzoic Acid

Studies in women suggest that this medication poses minimal risk to the infant when used during breastfeeding.

Methylene BlueBenzyl BenzoateMethenamineAtropineHyoscyamine

There are no adequate studies in women for determining infant risk when using this medication during breastfeeding. Weigh the potential benefits against the potential risks before taking this medication while breastfeeding.

Interactions with Medicines

Although certain medicines should not be used together at all, in other cases two different medicines may be used together even if an interaction might occur. In these cases, your doctor may want to change the dose, or other precautions may be necessary. When you are taking atropine, hyoscyamine, methenamine, methylene blue, phenyl salicylate, and benzoic acid, it is especially important that your healthcare professional know if you are taking any of the medicines listed below. The following interactions have been selected on the basis of their potential significance and are not necessarily all-inclusive.

Using atropine, hyoscyamine, methenamine, methylene blue, phenyl salicylate, and benzoic acid with any of the following medicines is not recommended. Your doctor may decide not to treat you with this medication or change some of the other medicines you take.

Ambenonium Amitriptyline Amoxapine Bupropion Citalopram Clomipramine Desipramine Desvenlafaxine Doxepin Duloxetine Escitalopram Fluoxetine Fluvoxamine Imipramine Isocarboxazid Linezolid Maprotiline Mirtazapine Nortriptyline Paroxetine Phenelzine Potassium Protriptyline Selegiline Sertraline Tranylcypromine Trimipramine Venlafaxine Vilazodone

Using atropine, hyoscyamine, methenamine, methylene blue, phenyl salicylate, and benzoic acid with any of the following medicines is usually not recommended, but may be required in some cases. If both medicines are prescribed together, your doctor may change the dose or how often you use one or both of the medicines.

Buspirone Nefazodone Trazodone

Using atropine, hyoscyamine, methenamine, methylene blue, phenyl salicylate, and benzoic acid with any of the following medicines may cause an increased risk of certain side effects, but using both drugs may be the best treatment for you. If both medicines are prescribed together, your doctor may change the dose or how often you use one or both of the medicines.

Arbutamine Interactions with Food/Tobacco/Alcohol

Certain medicines should not be used at or around the time of eating food or eating certain types of food since interactions may occur. Using alcohol or tobacco with certain medicines may also cause interactions to occur. The following interactions have been selected on the basis of their potential significance and are not necessarily all-inclusive.

Other Medical Problems

The presence of other medical problems may affect the use of atropine, hyoscyamine, methenamine, methylene blue, phenyl salicylate, and benzoic acid. Make sure you tell your doctor if you have any other medical problems, especially:

Bleeding problems (severe)—This combination medicine may increase heart rate, which would make bleeding problems worse Brain damage (in children)—May increase the central nervous system (CNS) effects of this combination medicine Colitis (severe) or Dryness of mouth (severe or continuing) or Enlarged prostate or Fever or Glaucoma or Heart disease or Hernia (hiatal) or High blood pressure or Intestinal blockage or other intestinal or stomach problems or Lung disease or Myasthenia gravis or Toxemia of pregnancy or Urinary tract blockage or difficult urination—This combination medicine may make these conditions worse Dehydration or Kidney disease or Liver disease—Higher levels of medicine may result and increase the risk of side effects Overactive thyroid—May increase the heart rate Proper Use of atropine, hyoscyamine, methenamine, methylene blue, phenyl salicylate, and benzoic acid

While you are taking this combination medicine, it is important for your urine to be acidic. To do this, your doctor may recommend that you eat more protein and such foods as cranberries (especially cranberry juice with vitamin C added), plums, or prunes. You should avoid foods that make the urine more alkaline, such as most fruits (especially citrus fruits and juices), milk, and other dairy products.

Take atropine, hyoscyamine, methenamine, methylene blue, phenyl salicylate, and benzoic acid only as directed. Do not take more of it, do not take it more often, and do not take it for a longer time than your doctor ordered. To do so may increase the chance of side effects.

Each dose should be taken with a full glass (8 ounces) of water or other liquid (except citrus juices and milk). Drink plenty of water or other liquids every day, unless otherwise directed by your doctor. Drinking enough liquids will help your kidneys work better and lessen your discomfort.

To help clear up your infection completely, keep taking atropine, hyoscyamine, methenamine, methylene blue, phenyl salicylate, and benzoic acid for the full time of treatment even if you begin to feel better after a few days. Do not miss any doses.

In order for atropine, hyoscyamine, methenamine, methylene blue, phenyl salicylate, and benzoic acid to work well, your urine must be acid (pH 5.5 or below). To make sure that your urine is acid:

Before you start taking atropine, hyoscyamine, methenamine, methylene blue, phenyl salicylate, and benzoic acid, check your urine with phenaphthazine paper or another test to see if it is acid. If you have any questions about this, check with your health care professional. You may need to change your diet; however, check with your doctor first if you are on a special diet (for example, for diabetes). To help make your urine more acid you should avoid most fruits (especially citrus fruits and juices), milk and other dairy products, and other foods which make the urine more alkaline. Eating more protein and foods such as cranberries (especially cranberry juice with vitamin C added), plums, or prunes may also help. If your urine is still not acid enough, check with your doctor. Dosing

The dose of atropine, hyoscyamine, methenamine, methylene blue, phenyl salicylate, and benzoic acid will be different for different patients. Follow your doctor's orders or the directions on the label. The following information includes only the average doses of atropine, hyoscyamine, methenamine, methylene blue, phenyl salicylate, and benzoic acid. If your dose is different, do not change it unless your doctor tells you to do so.

The amount of medicine that you take depends on the strength of the medicine. Also, the number of doses you take each day, the time allowed between doses, and the length of time you take the medicine depend on the medical problem for which you are using the medicine.

For oral dosage form (tablets): For relief of urinary tract symptoms: Adults and children 12 years of age and older—1 to 2 tablets four times a day. Children 6 to 12 years of age—Dose must be determined by the doctor. Children up to 6 years of age—Use is not recommended. Missed Dose

For temporary relief, use sugarless candy or gum, melt bits of ice in your mouth, or use a saliva substitute. However, if your mouth continues to feel dry for more than 2 weeks, check with your dentist. Continuing dryness of the mouth may increase the chance of dental disease, including tooth decay, gum disease, and fungus infections.

Do not take atropine, hyoscyamine, methenamine, methylene blue, phenyl salicylate, and benzoic acid within 2 or 3 hours of taking antacids or medicine for diarrhea. Taking antacids or antidiarrhea medicines and atropine, hyoscyamine, methenamine, methylene blue, phenyl salicylate, and benzoic acid too close together may prevent atropine, hyoscyamine, methenamine, methylene blue, phenyl salicylate, and benzoic acid from working properly.

Hyosyne


hyoscyamine sulfate
Dosage Form: oral solution
Hyosyne ORAL DROPS (Hyoscyamine Sulfate Oral Solution)
Hyosyne ELIXIR(Hyoscyamine Sulfate Elixir) Hyosyne Description

Hyosyne ORAL DROPS (Hyoscyamine Sulfate Oral Solution) contain 0.125 mg hyoscyamine sulfate per
mL with 5% v/v alcohol for oral administration.

Hyosyne ELIXIR (Hyoscyamine Sulfate Elixir) contains 0.125 mg hyoscyamine sulfate per 5 mL with
20% v/v alcohol for oral administration.

Hyoscyamine sulfate is one of the principal anticholinergic/antispasmodic components of belladonna alkaloids. The empirical formula is (C17H23NO3)2 • H2SO4 • 2H2O and the molecular weight is 712.85. Chemically, it is benzeneacetic acid, (?-(hydroxymethyl)-,8-methyl-8-azabicyclo [3.2.1.] oct-3-yl ester, [3(S)-endo]-,sulfate (2:1), dihydrate with the following structure:

Hyosyne ORAL DROPS also contain as inactive ingredients: Alcohol, citric acid, FD&C red #40, FD&C yellow #6, flavor, glycerin, sodium benzoate, sodium citrate, sorbitol solution, sucrose, and water.

Hyosyne ELIXIR also contain as inactive ingredients: Alcohol, citric acid, FD&C red #40, FD&C yellow #6, flavor, glycerin, purified water, sodium benzoate, sodium citrate, sorbitol solution, and sucrose.

Hyosyne - Clinical Pharmacology

Hyoscyamine Sulfate inhibits specifically the actions of acetylcholine on structures innervated by postganglionic cholinergic nerves and on smooth muscles that respond to acetylcholine but lack cholinergic innervation. These peripheral cholinergic receptors are present in the autonomic effector cells of the smooth muscle, cardiac muscle, the sinoatrial node, the atrioventricular node, and the exocrine glands. At therapeutic doses, it is completely devoid of any action on autonomic ganglia. Hyoscyamine sulfate
inhibits gastrointestinal propulsive motility and decreases gastric acid secretion. Hyoscyamine sulfate also controls excessive pharyngeal, tracheal and bronchial secretions.

Hyoscyamine sulfate is absorbed totally and completely by oral administration. Once absorbed, hyoscyamine sulfate disappears rapidly from the blood and is distributed throughout the entire body. The half-life of hyoscyamine sulfate is 2 to 3 1/2 hours. Hyoscyamine sulfate is partly hydrolyzed to tropic acid and tropine but the majority of the drug is excreted in the urine unchanged within the first 12 hours. Only traces of this drug are found in breast milk. Hyoscyamine sulfate passes the blood brain barrier and the placental barrier.

Indications and Usage for Hyosyne

Hyoscyamine sulfate is effective as adjunctive therapy in the treatment of peptic ulcer. It can also be used to control gastric secretion, visceral spasm and hypermotility in spastic colitis, spastic bladder, cystitis, pylorospasm, and associated abdominal cramps. May be used in functional intestinal disorders to reduce symptoms such as those seen in mild dysenteries, diverticulitis, and acute enterocolitis. For use as adjunctive therapy in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (irritable colon, spastic colon,
mucous colitis) and functional gastrointestinal disorders. Also used as adjunctive therapy in the treatment of neurogenic bladder and neurogenic bowel disturbances (including the splenic flexure syndrome and neurogenic colon). Also used in the treatment of infant colic (elixir and drops). Hyoscyamine sulfate is indicated along with morphine or other narcotics in symptomatic relief of biliary and renal colic; as a “drying agent” in the relief of symptoms of acute rhinitis; in the therapy of parkinsonism to reduce rigidity and tremors and to control associated sialorrhea and hyperhidrosis. May be used in the therapy of poisoning by anticholinesterase agents.

Contraindications

Glaucoma; obstructive uropathy (for example, bladder neck obstruction due to prostatic hypertrophy); obstructive disease of the gastrointestinal tract (as in achalasia, pyloroduodenal stenosis); paralytic ileus, intestinal atony of elderly or debilitated patients; unstable cardiovascular status in acute hemorrhage; severe ulcerative colitis; toxic megacolon complicating ulcerative colitis; myasthenia gravis.

Warnings

In the presence of high environmental temperature, heat prostration can occur with drug use (fever and heat stroke due to decreased sweating). Diarrhea may be an early symptom of incomplete intestinal obstruction, especially in patients with ileostomy or colostomy. In this instance, treatment with this drug would be inappropriate and possibly harmful. Like other anticholinergic agents, Hyoscyamine sulfate may produce drowsiness, dizziness or blurred vision. In this event, the patient should be warned not to engage in activities requiring mental alertness such as operating a motor vehicle or other machinery or to perform hazardous work while taking this drug.

Psychosis has been reported in sensitive individuals given anticholinergic drugs. CNS signs and symptoms include confusion, disorientation, short term memory loss, hallucinations, dysarthria, ataxia, coma, euphoria, decreased anxiety, fatigue, insomnia, agitation and mannerisms, and inappropriate affect. These CNS signs and symptoms usually resolve within 12 to 48 hours after discontinuation of the drug.

Precautions

General:
Use with caution in patients with: autonomic neuropathy, hyperthyroidism, coronary heart disease, congestive heart failure, cardiac arrythmias, hypertension, and renal disease. Investigate any tachycardia before giving any anticholinergic drug since they may increase the heart rate. Use with caution in patients with hiatal hernia associated with reflux esophagitis.

Information for Patients:
Like other anticholinergic agents, hyoscyamine sulfate may produce drowsiness, dizziness or blurred vision. In this event, the patient should be warned not to engage in activities requiring mental alertness such as operating a motor vehicle or other machinery or to perform hazardous work while taking this drug. Use of hyoscyamine sulfate may decrease sweating resulting in heat prostration, fever or heat stroke; febrile patients or those who may be exposed to elevated environmental temperatures should use caution.

Drug Interactions:
Additive adverse effects resulting from cholinergic blockade may occur when hyoscyamine sulfate is administered concomitantly with other antimuscarinics, amantadine, haloperidol, phenothiazines, monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors, tricyclic antidepressants or some antihistamines.

Antacids may interfere with the absorption of hyoscyamine sulfate. Administer hyoscyamine sulfate before meals; antacids after meals.

Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility:
No long-term studies in animals have been performed to determine the carcinogenic, mutagenic or impairment of fertility potential of hyoscyamine sulfate; however, years of marketing experience with hyoscyamine sulfate shows no demonstrable evidence of a problem.

Pregnancy - Pregnancy Category C:
Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with hyoscyamine sulfate. It is also not known whether hyoscyamine sulfate can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. Hyoscyamine sulfate should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.

Nursing Mothers:
Hyoscyamine sulfate is excreted in human milk. Caution should be exercised when hyoscyamine sulfate is administered to a nursing woman.

Geriatric Use:
Reported clinical experience has not identified differences in safety between patients aged 65 and over and younger patients. In general, dose selection for an elderly patient should be cautious, usually starting at the low end of the dosing range, reflecting the greater frequency of decreased hepatic, renal, or cardiac function, and of concomitant disease or other drug therapy.

This drug is known to be substantially excreted by the kidney, and the risk of toxic reactions to this drug may be greater in patients with impaired renal function. Because elderly patients are more likely to have decreased renal function, care should be taken in dose selection, and it may be useful to monitor renal function.

Adverse Reactions

All of the following adverse reactions have been reported with hyoscyamine sulfate. Adverse reactions may include dryness of the mouth; urinary hesitancy and retention; blurred vision; tachycardia; palpitations; mydriasis; increased ocular tension; loss of taste; headache; nervousness; drowsiness; weakness; fatigue; dizziness; insomnia; nausea; vomiting; impotence; constipation; bloated feeling; abdominal pain; diarrhea; allergic reactions or drug idiosyncrasies; urticaria and other dermal manifestations; ataxia; speech disturbance; some degree of mental confusion and/or excitement (especially in elderly persons); short-term memory loss; hallucinations; and decreased sweating.

Overdosage

The signs and symptoms of overdose are headache, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, dilated pupils, hot dry skin, dizziness, dryness of the mouth, difficulty in swallowing, and CNS stimulation.

Measures to be taken are immediate lavage of the stomach and injection of physostigmine 0.5 to 2 mg intravenously and repeated as necessary up to a total of 5 mg. Fever may be treated symptomatically (tepid water sponge baths, hypothermic blanket). Excitement to a degree which demands attention may be managed with sodium thiopental 2% solution given slowly intravenously or chloral hydrate (100-200 mL of a 2% solution) by rectal infusion. In the event of progression of the curare-like effect to paralysis of the respiratory muscles, artificial respiration should be instituted and maintained until effective respiratory action returns.

Symlin Vial


Pronunciation: PRAM-lin-tide
Generic Name: Pramlintide
Brand Name: Symlin

Symlin Vial is used along with insulin. It may increase the risk of severe low blood sugar caused by insulin. The risk may be higher in patients with type 1 diabetes. If this occurs, it is seen within 3 hours after an injection of Symlin Vial. Use caution if you will be driving or performing other possibly unsafe tasks. Be sure you understand how to use Symlin Vial and how to recognize low blood sugar. Discuss any questions or concerns with your health care provider.


Symlin Vial is used for:

Treating diabetes in certain patients who also use insulin.

Symlin Vial is an amylin analog. It works by slowing down food digestion. This prevents blood sugar from rising as quickly after you eat. It may also help you feel full faster.

Do NOT use Symlin Vial if: you are allergic to any ingredient in Symlin Vial, including metacresol you have a condition that causes your stomach to empty very slowly (gastroparesis) you cannot tell when your blood sugar is low you take an alpha glucosidase inhibitor (eg, acarbose) or an anticholinergic (eg, scopolamine, hyoscyamine)

Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.

Before using Symlin Vial:

Some medical conditions may interact with Symlin Vial. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any medical conditions, especially if any of the following apply to you:

if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding if you are taking any prescription or nonprescription medicine, herbal preparation, or dietary supplement if you have allergies to medicines, foods, or other substances if you have vision or coordination problems, or a history of stomach or bowel problems if you have had severe low blood sugar within the past 6 months, have diabetic nerve disease (eg, peripheral neuropathy), or have high hemoglobin A1c if you have trouble using your insulin therapy or monitoring your blood sugar levels if you are on dialysis if you take medicine that helps food move through your stomach more quickly

Some MEDICINES MAY INTERACT with Symlin Vial. Tell your health care provider if you are taking any other medicines, especially any of the following:

Beta blockers (eg, propranolol), clonidine, guanethidine, or reserpine because they may hide the symptoms of low blood sugar Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors (eg, enalapril), disopyramide, fibrates (eg, clofibrate), fluoxetine, monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) (eg, phenelzine), pentoxifylline, propoxyphene, salicylates (eg, aspirin), sulfonamide antibiotics (eg, sulfamethoxazole), or sulfonylureas (eg, glipizide) because the risk of low blood sugar may be increased Alpha glucosidase inhibitors (eg, acarbose) or anticholinergics (eg, scopolamine, hyoscyamine) because they may increase the risk of Symlin Vial's side effects

This may not be a complete list of all interactions that may occur. Ask your health care provider if Symlin Vial may interact with other medicines that you take. Check with your health care provider before you start, stop, or change the dose of any medicine.

How to use Symlin Vial:

Use Symlin Vial as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions.

Symlin Vial comes with an extra patient information sheet called a Medication Guide. It also comes with a "Patient Instructions for Use" sheet. Read these information sheets carefully before you use Symlin Vial. Read them again each time you get Symlin Vial refilled. Use Symlin Vial immediately before major meals, as directed by your health care provider. A health care provider will teach you how to use Symlin Vial. Be sure you understand how to use it. Follow the procedures you are taught when you use a dose. Contact your health care provider if you have any questions. Do not use Symlin Vial if it contains particles, is cloudy or discolored, or if the vial is cracked or damaged. Symlin Vial is given as an injection under the skin, usually in the stomach area or upper thigh. Do not inject Symlin Vial into the arm, because it may not absorb properly. Rotate injection sites so you do not use the same site repeatedly. Do not mix Symlin Vial in the same syringe with insulin or inject it in the same area as insulin. Inject Symlin Vial at least 2 inches away from where you inject your insulin. If you store Symlin Vial in the refrigerator, allow it to warm to room temperature before you inject a dose. This may decrease the chance of a reaction at the injection site. Symlin Vial may affect the way other medicines are absorbed into your body. Some medicines may need to be taken at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after using Symlin Vial. Talk with your doctor or pharmacist about how you should take any other medicines with Symlin Vial. Keep this product, as well as syringes and needles, out of the reach of children and pets. Do not reuse needles, syringes, or other materials. Ask your health care provider how to dispose of these materials after use. Follow all local rules for disposal. Continue to use Symlin Vial even if you feel well. Do not miss any doses. If you miss a dose of Symlin Vial, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not use 2 doses at once.

Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Symlin Vial.

Important safety information: Dizziness may occur while you are using Symlin Vial. This effect may be worse if you take it with alcohol or certain medicines. Use Symlin Vial with caution. Do not drive or perform other possibly unsafe tasks until you know how you react to it. Do not drink alcohol without discussing it with your doctor. Drinking alcohol may increase the risk of developing low blood sugar. Nausea is a common side effect of Symlin Vial. Mild nausea is more likely during the first weeks of treatment and usually does not last long. Tell your doctor if nausea continues or is bothersome. Do NOT use Symlin Vial if your blood sugar is too low, you skip a meal, you plan to eat a meal with fewer than 250 calories or 30 grams of carbohydrates, you are sick and cannot eat your usual meal, you are having surgery or a medical test for which you cannot eat, or you are pregnant or breast-feeding and have not talked to your doctor. Do not use more than your prescribed dose of Symlin Vial without checking with your doctor. Using more than the prescribed dose may cause nausea and vomiting, and you may not be able to eat the amount of food you usually eat. If you use more of Symlin Vial than the prescribed dose, pay close attention to the amount of insulin use. You may have greater risk of developing low blood sugar. Contact your doctor or other health care provider for instructions. Tell your doctor or dentist that you take Symlin Vial before you receive any medical or dental care, emergency care, or surgery. Talk with your health care provider about all of your diabetes medicines and how to use them. Do not start, stop, or change the dose of any diabetes medicine unless your doctor tells you to. If you stop using Symlin Vial for any reason (eg, surgery, illness), contact your doctor. Follow your doctor's instructions for restarting Symlin Vial. Symlin Vial may increase the risk of severe low blood sugar caused by insulin. Low blood sugar may also occur if you use too much of Symlin Vial, use too much insulin, skip a meal, or exercise more than usual. Low blood sugar may make you anxious, sweaty, weak, dizzy, drowsy, or faint. It may also make your heart beat faster; make your vision change; give you a headache, chills, or tremors; or make you more hungry. It is a good idea to carry a reliable source of glucose (eg, tablets or gel) to treat low blood sugar. If this is not available, you should eat or drink a quick source of sugar like table sugar, honey, candy, orange juice, or non-diet soda. This will raise your blood sugar level quickly. Tell your doctor right away if this happens. To prevent low blood sugar, eat meals at the same time each day and do not skip meals. Carry an ID card at all times that says you take Symlin Vial. Monitor your blood sugar levels as directed by your health care provider. Most patients will monitor blood sugar before meals, after meals, and at bedtime. If your blood sugar is often higher or lower than it should be, check with your doctor. Follow the diet and exercise program given to you by your health care provider. Ask your health care provider what you should do if you miss a dose of your insulin. It may be harder to control your blood sugar during times of stress such as fever, infection, injury, or surgery. If any of these occur, talk with your doctor. A change in your medicine may be needed. Lab tests, including fasting blood sugar levels and hemoglobin A1c, may be performed while you use Symlin Vial. These tests may be used to monitor your condition or check for side effects. Be sure to keep all doctor and lab appointments. Symlin Vial should not be used in CHILDREN; safety and effectiveness have not been confirmed. PREGNANCY and BREAST-FEEDING: If you become pregnant while taking Symlin Vial, contact your doctor. You will need to discuss the benefits and risks of using Symlin Vial while you are pregnant. It is not known if Symlin Vial is found in breast milk. If you are or will be breast-feeding while you are using Symlin Vial, check with your doctor. Discuss any possible risks to your baby. Possible side effects of Symlin Vial:

All medicines may cause side effects, but many people have no, or minor, side effects. Check with your doctor if any of these most COMMON side effects persist or become bothersome:

Decreased appetite; indigestion; minor redness, swelling, itching, or pain at the injection site; nausea; stomach pain; tiredness; vomiting.

Seek medical attention right away if any of these SEVERE side effects occur:

Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue); seizure; severe of persistent nausea; symptoms of low blood sugar (eg, chills, dizziness, drowsiness, fainting, fast heartbeat, headache, increased hunger, irritability, nervousness, sweating, tremor, trouble concentrating, weakness).

This is not a complete list of all side effects that may occur. If you have questions about side effects, contact your health care provider. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. To report side effects to the appropriate agency, please read the Guide to Reporting Problems to FDA.
