RE-PB Hyos Elixir is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients. Phenobarbital is
contraindicated in patients with acute intermittent porphyria and in those patients in which phenobarbital produces
restlessness and/or excitement.
It is also contraindicated in patients with glaucoma, obstructive uropathy; paralytic ileus; myasthenia gravis;
intestinal atony; unstable cardiovascular status in acute hemorrhage; hiatal hernia associated with reflux esophagitis;
obstructive disease of the gastrointestinal tract; or severe ulcerative colitis
Heat prostration can occur with belladonna alkaloids in high temperatures.
Diarrhea may be an early symptom of incomplete intestinal obstruction, especially in patients with ileostomy or colostomy.
In this instance, treatment with this drug could be harmful.
RE-PB Hyos Elixir may produce drowsiness and blurred vision. The patient should be warned about engaging in hazardous work or activities requiring mental alertness, such as operating a motor vehicle or other machinery. Phenobarbital may decrease the effect of anticoagulants, and larger doses of the anticoagulant may be needed for optimal effect. When phenobarbital is discontinued, the dose of the anticoagulant may have to be decreased. Phenobarbital may be habit forming and should not be administered to patients who are susceptible to addiction or to those with a history of physical and/or psychological drug dependence.
Barbiturates should be used with caution in patients with hepatic dysfunction.
Use with caution in patients with: autonomic neuropathy, hepatic or renal disease, hyperthyroidism, coronary heart
disease, congestive heart failure, cardiac arrhythmias, tachycardia, and hypertension.
Belladonna alkaloids may produce a delay in gastric emptying (antral stasis) which would complicate the management of
gastric ulcer. Do not rely on the use of the drug in the presence of complication of biliary tract disease. Theoretically,
with overdosage, a curare-like action may occur.
