PATIENT INFORMATION

Somnolence

Caution patients against engaging in hazardous occupations requiring complete mental alertness, and motor coordination such as operating machinery or driving a motor vehicle after ingestion of XYZAL.

Concomitant Use of Alcohol and other Central Nervous System Depressants

Instruct patients to avoid concurrent use of XYZAL with alcohol or other central nervous system depressants because additional reduction in mental alertness may occur.

Dosing of XYZAL

Do not exceed the recommended daily dose in adults and adolescents 12 years of age and older of 5 mg once daily in the evening. In children 6 to 11 years of age the recommended dose is 2.5 mg once daily in the evening. In children 6 months to 5 years of age, the recommended dose is 1.25 mg once daily in the evening. Advise patients to not ingest more than the recommended dose of XYZAL because of the increased risk of somnolence at higher doses.
