Discontinue at 1st sign of blisters, peeling rash, or mucosal erosions. Monitor BP prior to and during therapy. History of seizure disorder, drug abuse. Angle-closure glaucoma. Decreased GI motility. Cardiac disease. Diabetes. Monitor weight and growth in children. Severe renal impairment (CrCl ≥15–<30mL/min), end stage renal disease, hepatic insufficiency, evidence of chronic liver disease, or substantial alcohol use: not recommended. Avoid abrupt cessation. Reevaluate periodically. Elderly. Pregnancy (esp. 3rd trimester). Neonates. Labor & delivery: increased risk of postpartum hemorrhage. Nursing mothers: monitor infants.

DRIZALMA SPRINKLE Classification:

Potentiated by potent CYP1A2 inhibitors (eg, cimetidine, fluvoxamine, quinolones, enoxacin): avoid. May potentiate or be potentiated by CYP2D6 inhibitors (eg, paroxetine, fluoxetine, quinidine) or substrates (eg, tricyclics, phenothiazines, type 1C antiarrhythmics) or other highly protein-bound drugs. Caution with CYP1A2 substrates (eg, theophylline, caffeine), antihypertensives, CNS-acting drugs, other drugs that induce orthostatic hypotension or raise gastric pH (eg, PPIs, famotidine). Increased risk of bleeding with aspirin, NSAIDs, warfarin, or others that affect coagulation; monitor.
