Anturane Patient Information including If I Miss a Dose

What happens if I miss a dose (Anturane)?

Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the dose you missed and take only your next regularly scheduled dose. Do not take a double dose of this medication.

What happens if I overdose (Anturane)?

Seek emergency medical attention.

Symptoms of a sulfinpyrazone overdose include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, poor coordination, difficulty breathing, seizures, and coma. An overdose of sulfinpyrazone can result in death.

What should I avoid while taking sulfinpyrazone (Anturane)?

Do not take aspirin, salsalate (Disalcid), magnesium salicylate (Magan, Doan's), choline and magnesium salicylate (Trilisate), or other aspirin-like products unless your doctor approves. These products decrease the effects of sulfinpyrazone. Taking one aspirin a day to reduce the risk of a heart attack is usually acceptable.

Follow your doctor's recommendations about diet.

What other drugs will affect sulfinpyrazone (Anturane)?

Do not take aspirin, salsalate (Disalcid), magnesium salicylate (Magan, Doan's), choline and magnesium salicylate (Trilisate), or other aspirin-like products unless your doctor approves. These products decrease the effects of sulfinpyrazone. Taking one aspirin a day to reduce the risk of a heart attack is usually acceptable.

The combination of sulfinpyrazone and acetaminophen (in Tylenol and many other products) can be damaging to your liver. Do not take products that contain acetaminophen unless your doctor approves.

Sulfinpyrazone may increase the effects of the following medicines:

  • warfarin (Coumadin), which could lead to bleeding; and
  • tolbutamide (Orinase), which could lead to low blood sugar levels.

You may need lower doses of these drugs.

Sulfinpyrazone may decrease the effects of other medicines:

  • theophylline (Theo-Dur, Theochron, Theolair, Elixophylline, others), which could lead to worsening asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); and
  • verapamil (Verelan, Calan, Isoptin), which could lead to worsening heart problems such as high blood pressure or an irregular heartbeat.

You may need higher doses of these drugs.

Niacin (Nicolar, Nicobid, others) may decrease the effects of sulfinpyrazone. A dose adjustment may be necessary.

Drugs other than those listed here may also interact with sulfinpyrazone. Talk to your doctor and pharmacist before taking any prescription or over-the-counter medicines.

Where can I get more information?

Your pharmacist has more information about sulfinpyrazone written for health professionals that you may read.
