1. WHAT ARE SENIORAL comprimidos AND WHAT ARE THEY USED FOR?

SENIORAL comprimidos have two principal ingredients: clocinizine and phenylpropanolamine. Clocinizine belongs to the antihistamine group, drugs used for the alleviation of allergic reactions.
Phenylpropanolamine belongs to the adrenergic agonist group, which are used for the alleviation of nasal congestion.

SENIORAL comprimidos are used solely for the temporary alleviation of nasal congestion in colds, rhinitis, and nasal congestion associated with sinusitis.

2. BEFORE TAKING SENIORAL comprimidos

Do not take SENIORAL comprimidos
-If you are allergic (hypersensitive) to phenylpropanolamine, clocinizine or any of the other components of SENIORAL comprimidos.
-If you have high blood pressure (arterial hypertension), if you have any thyroid illness (hyperthyroidism) or suffer heart problems (serious coronary illness or angina pectoris).
-If you are taking any medicine for depression or for Parkinson’s disease, which inhibits the mono-amino-oxide (IMAO) (see below: Use of other medicines).
-With children under 12.

Be especially careful with SENIORAL comprimidos
-Do not exceed the maximum recommended dose (see 3.How to take SENIORAL comprimidos), as serious side effects can occur (see If you take more SENIORAL comprimidos than you should).

If you have taken any of these medicines, wait a minimum of 15 days before taking SENIORAL comprimidos.
