- Caution is required in patients with a history of hypertension and/or heart failure as fluid retention and oedema have been reported in association with aspirin therapy.
- Elderly: The elderly have an increased frequency of adverse reactions of NSAIDs, especially gastrointestinal bleeding and perforation (PUBs) which may be fatal.
- The risk of gastrointestinal bleeding or perforation (PUBs) is higher with increasing doses of MED-LEMON HOT MEDICATION WITH VITAMIN C, in patients with a history of ulcers, and the elderly.
- When gastrointestinal bleeding or ulceration occurs in patients receiving MED-LEMON HOT MEDICATION WITH VITAMIN C, treatment with MED-LEMON HOT MEDICATION WITH VITAMIN C should be stopped.
- MED-LEMON HOT MEDICATION WITH VITAMIN C should be given with caution to patients with a history of gastrointestinal disease (e.g. ulcerative colitis, Chrohn’s disease, hiatus hernia, gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, angiodysplasia) as the condition may be exacerbated.
- Serious skin reactions, some of them fatal, including exfoliative dermatitis, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, and toxic epidermal necrolysis have been reported. MED-LEMON HOT MEDICATION WITH VITAMIN C should be discontinued at the first appearance of skin rash, mucosal lesions, or any other sign of hypersensitivity.
In the event of overdosage and notwithstanding the fact that the person may be asymptomatic, the nearest doctor, hospital or Poison Control Centre must be contacted immediately.
