SIDE EFFECTS

Safety data from 302 patients who used Noritate (n=200) or vehicle control (n=102) once daily in clinical trials and experienced an adverse event considered to be treatment related include: application site reaction (Noritate 1, vehicle 1), condition aggravated (Noritate 1, vehicle 0), paresthesia (Noritate 0, vehicle 1), acne (Noritate 1, vehicle 0), dry skin (Noritate 0, vehicle 2). The majority of adverse reactions were mild to moderate in severity.

Two patients treated with Noritate once daily discontinued treatment because of adverse events: one for a severe flare of comedonal acne and one for rosacea aggravated.

Additional clinical adverse effects reported spontaneously since the drug was marketed are uncommon and include tingling or numbness of extremities, allergic reactions, skin and eye irritation, rash, headache, nausea and dry mouth.

To report SUSPECTED ADVERSE REACTIONS, contact Bausch Health US, LLC at 1-800-321-4576 or FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088 or www.fda.gov/medwatch.

DRUG INTERACTIONS

Oral metronidazole has been reported to potentiate the anticoagulant effect of coumarin and warfarin resulting in a prolongation of prothrombin time. Drug interactions should be kept in mind when Noritate is prescribed for patients who are receiving anticoagulant treatment, although they are less likely to occur with topical metronidazole administration because of low absorption.
