Instructions for use

The total dose should not be exceeded without consulting a doctor or pharmacist.

Type of application?
Take the medicine with liquid (e.g. 1 glass of water).

Duration of application?
The duration of use depends on the type of symptoms and / or the course of the disease. As a rule, however, the duration of treatment should be as short as possible and only last a few days. If symptoms persist, you should consult your doctor.

Overdose?
Overdosing can lead to drowsiness, impaired consciousness, hallucinations and cardiovascular disorders. If you suspect an overdose, contact a doctor immediately.

The general rule is: Pay attention to a conscientious dosage, especially for babies, toddlers and the elderly. If in doubt, ask your doctor or pharmacist about any effects or precautionary measures.

A dosage prescribed by a doctor may differ from the information on the package insert. Since the doctor will tailor them individually, you should therefore use the medicine according to his instructions.
