Because of a possible interference of the product metabolites with the methionine metabolism, ERDOTIN is contraindicated in patients suffering from hepatic cirrhosis and deficiency of the cystathionine-synthetase enzyme.
Since there are no data in patients with creatinine clearance < 25 ml/min or with severe liver failure, the use of erdosteine is not recommended in these patients.
Less than 1 in 1,000 can expect to get gastrointestinal undesirable effects.
See prescribing information for full details.
No harmful interactions with other drugs have been reported and the product can therefore be administered together with antibiotics and bronchodilators (theophylline or beta-2-mimetics, cough sedatives, etc…).
Pregnancy and Lactation
The safety of erdosteine in pregnancy has not been established, therefore, as with all new drugs, its use is not recommended. Equally, its use is not recommended during lactation.
With dosages exceeding those recommended (1200 mg/die) sweating, vertigo and flushing have been observed.
