If Levo-Dromoran (levorphanol) is administered to ambulatory patients, they should be cautioned against engaging in hazardous occupations requiring complete mental alertness such as operating machinery or driving a motor vehicle. They should also be warned that concurrent use of Levo-Dromoran (levorphanol) with central nervous system depressants (eg, alcohol, sedatives, hypnotics, other opioids, barbiturates, tricyclic antidepressants, phenothiazines, tranquilizers, skeletal muscle relaxants and antihistamines) may result in additive central nervous system depressant effects. Patients should be made aware of the risk of orthostatic hypotension, dizziness and syncope in ambulatory patients taking Levo-Dromoran (levorphanol) .
