Interaction

Antiflu-Des capsules should not be administered concomitantly with monoamine oxidase inhibitors because they prolong and intensify the effect of antihistamines and severe hypotension may occur. Do not administer central nervous system depressants because the sedative effect of antihistamines can be enhanced. Metoclopramide can increase the intestinal absorption of paracetamol. Propantheline decreases the absorption of paracetamol. Ingestion of alcohol and antiepileptics may increase the hepatotoxicity of paracetamol. Associated amantadine with levodopa can cause psychotic reactions. Hallucinations and mental confusion may occur in patients with renal failure under antimuscarinic therapy.
