5. Precautions when using Alanboss XL 10mg
* Warnings:
Some individuals are particularly sensitive to Alanboss XL 10mg, manifested by orthostatic hypotension when transitioning from lying to standing. This phenomenon may occur within hours after taking the medicine and is accompanied by the following symptoms: dizziness, fatigue, sweating.
If this occurs, patients should be kept in a lying position until these temporary symptoms completely disappear. Caution is advised, especially in elderly individuals and patients who have previously experienced hypotension when using alpha-blocker drugs.
Intraoperative floppy iris syndrome (IFIS):
If you are planning to undergo cataract surgery in the near future and if you have or are currently using Alanboss XL 10mg, inform your doctor before surgery. Alanboss XL 10mg may cause side effects and complications during surgery. However, if informed, depending on your treatment process, the doctor will have to be cautious during surgery.
Use with caution
Use alfuzosin with caution in patients with significantly low blood pressure after using other alpha-1 blockers.
For patients with coronary artery disease, alfuzosin should not be prescribed alone. Specific treatment for coronary artery disease should be continued. In cases of more severe or recurrent chest pain, alfuzosin should be discontinued.
Patients should be instructed to swallow the tablet whole.
Do not crush, chew, break, or crush into powder. These actions will cause inappropriate release and absorption of the drug, thus undesirable effects may occur earlier.
