Analgin Max with food, drink and alcohol
Alcohol consumption while taking this medicine should be avoided.
Pregnancy, breast-feeding and fertility
Available data on the use of metamizole during the first three months of pregnancy are limited, but do not indicate harmful effects for the embryo. In certain cases, where there are no other treatment options, it is possible to accept the administration of single doses of metamizole in the first and second trimesters after consulting a doctor or pharmacist and after careful
consideration of the benefits and risks of using metamizole. In general, however, the use of metamizole in the first and second trimesters is not recommended.
In the last three months of pregnancy, you should not take because of an increased risk of complications for the mother and child (bleeding, premature closure of an important blood vessel, the so-called Bottali ductus, in the unborn, which closes naturally only after birth).
Metamizole degradation products pass into breast milk in significant quantities and a risk to the infant cannot be excluded. Therefore, repeated use of metamizole during breast-feeding should be avoided. In the case of a single administration of metamizole, mothers are advised to collect and dispose of breast milk for 48 hours after dosing.
Driving and using machines
Analgin Max may change your ability to drive or use machines.
