What should I avoid when taking Mysimba®?

Avoid alcohol when taking Mysimba®
Drinking too much alcohol while taking Mysimba may:

• increase your risk of having fits (seizures);
• increase your risk of mental disorder events; or
• reduce your tolerance of alcohol.

Your doctor may suggest that you do not drink alcohol while taking Mysimba®, or try to drink as little as possible. If you do drink a lot now, do not just stop suddenly, because that may put you at risk of having a fit.

Do not take Mysimba if pregnant or breastfeeding
You should not take Mysimba® during pregnancy, or while breastfeeding.
However if you:

• think you may be pregnant; or
• planning to have a baby,

Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking Mysimba®.

Driving and using machines
Mysimba® may make you feel sleepy or dizzy and this may make you less able to concentrate and react, especially at the beginning of treatment or when increasing the dose. If you experience these side effects, it is best to avoid driving or operating machines until these have resolved.

Mysimba® contains lactose (a type of sugar)
If you have been told that you have an intolerance to some sugars, contact your doctor before taking Mysimba®.
