Karbinal ER

PATIENT INFORMATION

Dosing

Advise patients to measure Karbinal ER with an accurate milliliter measuring device. A household teaspoon is not an accurate measuring device and could lead to overdosage. [see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION].

Activities Requiring Mental Alertness

Advise patients to use caution when driving a motor vehicle or operating machinery. Karbinal ER may produce marked drowsiness and impair the mental or physical abilities required for the performance of potentially hazardous tasks such as driving a car or operating machinery [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].

Alcohol, Sedatives, and Tranquilizers

Advise patients to avoid the use of alcoholic beverages, sedatives, and tranquilizers while taking Karbinal ER because additional reduction in mental alertness may occur [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS and DRUG INTERACTIONS].

MAOIs

Advise patients to not use MAOIs while taking Karbinal ER. MAOIs may prolong and intensify the anticholinergic (drying) effects [see CONTRAINDICATIONS and DRUG INTERACTIONS].
