Advise patients to watch carefully for any signs of bleeding or bruising and to report these to their health care provider immediately. Inform patients that it might take them longer than usual to stop bleeding, and that they may bruise and/or bleed more easily when they are treated with Iprivask. If patients have had neuraxial anesthesia or spinal puncture, and particularly, if they are taking concomitant NSAIDs or platelet inhibitors, advise patients to watch for signs and symptoms of spinal or epidural hematoma, such as back pain, tingling, numbness (especially in the lower limbs), muscle weakness, and stool or urine incontinence. If any of these symptoms occur, advise the patient to contact his or her physician immediately.
Advise patients that allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, can occur during treatment with Iprivask. Inform patients to immediately notify their health care provider if the patient experiences symptoms of an allergic reaction while taking Iprivask.
Advise patients to discuss with their health care provider their use of any other medications, including over-the-counter medications or herbal products, prior to Iprivask use. Examples of other medications that should not be taken with Iprivask are aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs including ketorolac, acetylsalicylic acid ticlopidine, dipyridamole, sulfinpyrazone, clopidogrel, abciximab and other glycoprotein IIb/IIIa antagonists.
