    Special Precautions

    Not recommended for use in children and adolescents under the age of 18 years due to insufficient data on safety and efficacy. In case of increased tendency to bleeding (haemorrhagic diathesis) and in case of simultaneous treatment with coagulation-inhibiting drugs, this pharmaceutical preparation should only be used after having consulted with a physician. Single reports indicate the possibility that Ginkgo-containing preparations can increase bleeding tendency. This preparation should therefore be discontinued before surgical interventions. It cannot be excluded that the application of Ginkgo preparations promotes the occurrence of seizures in epileptic patients. This may be related to the content in 4’-O-methylpyridoxin. Patients with rare hereditary galactose intolerance, lactase deficiency or glucose-galactose malabsorption should not take this drug.
    See prescribing information for full details.

    Side Effects

    There are no verified data on the frequency of the undesirable effects observed during treatment with Ginkgo biloba-containing preparations, since these undesirable effects have become known through single reports from patients, physicians or pharmacists.
    According to these reports, the following undesirable effects may occur during treatment with this drug:
    Bleeding from single organs may occur in particular in case of concomitant use of coagulation-inhibiting preparations such as phenprocoumon, acetyl salicylic acid or other non-steroidal antirheumatics. Allergic shock is possible in hypersensitive persons; furthermore, allergic skin reactions (reddening, swelling, itching) may occur.
    Furthermore, mild gastrointestinal disturbances, headache, dizziness or enhancement of already existing dizziness can occur.
    See prescribing information for full details.

    Drug interactions

    In case of concomitant application of this drug with coagulation-inhibiting drugs (such as phenprocoumon, warfarin, clopidogrel, acetyl salicylic acid and other non-steroidal antirheumatics) it cannot be excluded that the effect of these preparations is enhanced. As for all medicinal preparations, it cannot be excluded that this drug acts on the metabolization of different other medicinal preparations via cytochrome P450-3A4,-1A2,-2C19 which may influence the potency and/or duration of the effect of the preparation concerned. There are not sufficient investigations available on these effects.
    See prescribing information for full details.

    Lactation: As no sufficient investigations are available, this preparation should not be used during lactation. It is not known whether the extract components are excreted in breast milk.
