Este medicamento é contra-indicado na faixa etária pediátrica.

ADVERTÊNCIAS

Informe seu médico caso você tenha ou já tenha apresentado problemas de saúde ou alergias, problemas no tendão ou caso você utilize medicamentos para convulsão.

Pacientes predispostos à convulsão
Como com qualquer outra quinolona, o levofloxacino deve ser utilizado com extrema cautela em pacientes predispostos à convulsão.
Estes pacientes podem estar com lesão pré-existente do sistema nervoso central, ou em tratamento concomitante com fenbufeno e antiinflamatórios não-esteroidais similares, ou com fármacos que diminuem o limiar da convulsão cerebral, como a teofilina (ver item “Interações medicamentosas”).

Colite pseudomembranosa
A ocorrência de diarréia, particularmente grave, persistente e/ou com sangue, durante ou após o tratamento com levofloxacino, pode ser indicativa de colite pseudomembranosa devido ao microrganismo Clostridium dificile. Na suspeita de colite pseudomembranosa, a administração de xxxxx® deve ser interrompida imediatamente.

O tratamento com antibiótico específico apropriado deve ser iniciado imediatamente (por exemplo: vancomicina oral, teicoplanina oral ou metronidazol). Produtos que inibem o peristaltismo, ou seja, inibem a motilidade gastrintestinal, são contra-indicados nesta situação.

Tendinite
A tendinite, raramente observada com quinolonas, pode ocasionalmente levar a ruptura envolvendo particularmente o tendão de Aquiles. Este efeito indesejado pode ocorrer nas 48 horas do início do tratamento e pode ser bilateral. Os pacientes idosos estão mais predispostos à tendinite. O risco de ruptura de tendão pode ficar aumentado na administração concomitante de corticosteróides. Na suspeita de tendinite, o tratamento com xxxxx® deve ser interrompido imediatamente. O tratamento apropriado (por exemplo: imobilização) deve ser iniciado no tendão afetado.

Gravidez

Este medicamento não deve ser utilizado por mulheres grávidas sem orientação médica ou do cirurgião-dentista.

Estudos de reprodução em animais não levantaram qualquer preocupação específica. Entretanto, esta contra-indicação é baseada na ausência de dados humanos e devido ao risco de danos em estudos experimentais utilizando fluorquinolonas, incluindo o levofloxacino, nas cartilagens de organismos em crescimento.

Amamentação
xxxxx® não deve ser utilizado por mulheres que estejam amamentando. Na ausência de dados humanos e devido ao risco de danos demonstrado em estudos experimentais, causados por fluorquinolonas, incluindo o levofloxacino, nas cartilagens de organismos em crescimento, esta atitude restritiva é justificada. (Ver item Contra-indicações).


INFORME AO MÉDICO OU CIRURGIÃO-DENTISTA O APARECIMENTO DE REAÇÕES INDESEJÁVEIS.

INFORME AO SEU MÉDICO OU CIRURGIÃO-DENTISTA SE VOCÊ ESTÁ FAZENDO USO DE ALGUM OUTRO MEDICAMENTO.

NÃO USE MEDICAMENTO SEM O CONHECIMENTO DO SEU MÉDICO. PODE SER PERIGOSO PARA A SUA SAÚDE.
Translation - English
This medicine is contraindicated in the pediatric age group.

WARNING

Inform your doctor in case you have or have already had health problems or allergies, problems in the tendon or in case you use medicines for seizures.

Patients prone to seizures
As with any other quinolone, levofloxacin must be used with extreme caution in patients prone to seizures.
These patients may have a pre-existent lesion of the central nervous system or be under concomitant treatment with fenbufen and similar nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or with drugs which lower the cerebral seizure threshold, such as theophylline (see section“Drug-drug interactions”).

Pseudomembranous colitis
The onset of diarrhoea, particularly severe, persistent and / or bloody, during or after treatment with levofloxacin, may indicate pseudomembranous colitis caused by the microorganism Clostridium dificile. If pseudomembranous colitis is suspected, the administration of xxxxxx® should be immediately discontinued.

Treatment with specific appropriate antibiotic should be immediately initiated (for example: oral vancomycin, oral teicoplanin or metronidazole). Products inhibiting peristalsis, i.e. inhibit gastrintestinal mobility, are contraindicated in this situation.

Tendinitis
Tendinitis, rarely observed with quinolones, may occasionally lead to ruptures involving particularly the Achilles tendon. This untoward effect may occur within 48 hours from starting the treatment and may be bilateral. Elderly patients are more prone to tendinitis. The risk of tendon ruptures may increase with the concomitant administration of corticosteroids. When tendinitis is suspected, the treatment with xxxxxx® should be immediately discontinued. Adequate treatment (for example: immobilization) should be initiated in the affected tendon.

Pregnancy

This medicine must not be used by pregnant women without medical or surgeon-dentist advice.

Studies of reproduction in animals did not raise any specific concerns. However, this contraindication is based on the absence of human data and caused by the risk of damages in experimental studies using fluorquinolones, including levofloxacin, in the cartilage of growing organisms
.

Lactation
xxxxxx® should not be used by women who are breast-feeding. In the absence of human data and because of the risk of damages demonstrated in experimental studies, caused by fluoroquinolones, including levofloxacin, in the cartilage of growing organisms, this restrictive attitude is justified. (See section Contraindications).

INFORM THE DOCTOR OR THE SURGEON-DENTIST ON THE APPEARANCE OF UNTOWARD REACTIONS.

INFORM YOUR DOCTOR OR SURGEON-DENTIST IF YOU ARE USING ANY OTHER MEDICINE.

DO NOT USE MEDICINE WITHOUT YOUR DOCTOR’S ADVICE.. IT MAY BE DANGEROUS FOR YOUR HEALTH.
