"An estimated half a million epinephrine autoinjectors are coming off the market. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising patients to call their doctor for an alternative, but some say there won't be enough supply to meet the demand."...
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].
