Precautionary warnings

Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking LEVID.

Levosulpiride should not be used when stimulation of gastrointestinal peristalsis may be harmful, for example in the presence of gastrointestinal bleeding, mechanical obstruction and perforation.

LEVID should be used with caution in patients at risk of stroke.

Levosulpiride should be used with caution in patients with cardiovascular disease or a family history of QT prolongation.

Concomitant treatment with other neuroleptics should be avoided, as a potentially fatal disorder, potentially fatal, called neuroleptic malignant syndrome, has been reported with these drugs (usually during treatment with antipsychotic drugs). The clinical manifestations of this syndrome are hyperpyrexia, muscle rigidity, akinesia, autonomic disorders (irregular pulse and blood pressure, sweating, tachycardia, arrhythmia), impaired consciousness, which may progress to stupor and coma. Treatment of neuroleptic malignant syndrome consists of immediate discontinuation of antipsychotic drugs and other non-essential drugs, and initiation of intensive symptomatic treatment (hyperthermia should be reduced and dehydration corrected). In cases where antipsychotic treatment is considered necessary, patients should be closely monitored.

Particular care is required in patients with a history of thrombosis, even at the family level, as this drug is associated with thrombus formation.

Anticholinergic drugs, narcotics and analgesics counteract the effects of levosulpiride on gastrointestinal peristalsis.

Other medicines and LEVID

Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking, have recently taken or might take any other medicines.

Combination with other drugs requires special care and vigilance on the part of the doctor to avoid unexpected effects of side effects.

The risk of cardiac arrhythmia is increased when neuroleptics are taken together with drugs that prolong the QT interval.

Levosulpiride should not be used concomitantly with drugs that cause electrolyte disturbances.

LEVID with alcohol
