Side effects

Some patients may experience nausea, vomiting and dizziness when the recommended dose of Donodol is exceeded or in people sensitive to the medication. If the discomfort is excessive, the treatment should be withdrawn. This drug can also cause dry mouth, accommodation disorders, constipation and pulse acceleration.

Overdose

The doses of Donodol used and advised for treatment are far from the toxic dose. However, some patients may experience hypotension, tinnitus, vertigo and dizziness. In case of overdose, it is recommended to maintain permeable airways, correct vital signs, do gastric lavage and aspiration. Overdose of the parasympatholytic component of the drug can cause tachycardia, rapid breathing, hyperpyrexia, restlessness, confusion, and excitement. Massive overdose can cause high blood pressure with circulatory insufficiency, and respiratory depression. In case of overdose poisoning, empty the stomach by aspiration, administer diazepam or a short-acting barbiturate to control the excitation, and provide supportive treatment, which usually includes oxygen and artificial respiration, apply compresses of ice or sponges soaked in alcohol for hyperpyrexia (especially in children), introduce a bladder catheter and administer fluid.

Interaction

Donodol does not alter the function of coagulation and does not interact with anticoagulant medications since Lysine Clonixinate does not interfere with coagulation as do other acidic analgesics. Because it has a minimal ulcer effect, the concomitant administration of the drug with potentially ulcerogenic medications should be taken into account in order to avoid intestinal aggression. The parenteral parasympatholytic component of the drug can interact and potentiate its effect by the action of tricyclic antidepressants, quinine, and amantadine, some antivirals, some antihistamines, butyrophenones, phenothiazines and derivatives.
