Contraindications

OVERDOSE

Acute toxicity determinations in animals have not been possible since the maximum dose that could be given orally produced no toxic reaction.

No acute toxic reactions have been reported.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Should not be used in patients hypersensitive to pork protein.
