Interactions between your drugs
acetaminophen prilocaine topical
Applies to: Comtrex Allergy Sinus Maximum Strength (acetaminophen / chlorpheniramine / pseudoephedrine) and Oraqix (lidocaine / prilocaine topical)
Talk to your doctor before using prilocaine topical together with acetaminophen. Prilocaine topical can cause a condition called methemoglobinemia that reduces the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood to different organs, and combining the medication with acetaminophen may increase the risk. Infants and patients with certain conditions such as glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency or anemia are more likely to develop this condition. You should seek immediate medical attention if you notice signs and symptoms such as a gray discoloration of the skin, mouth, or nail bed; nausea; headache; dizziness; lightheadedness; fatigue; shortness of breath; rapid or shallow breathing; a rapid heartbeat; anxiety; and confusion. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
Drug and food interactions
Applies to: Comtrex Allergy Sinus Maximum Strength (acetaminophen / chlorpheniramine / pseudoephedrine)
Alcohol can increase the nervous system side effects of chlorpheniramine such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience impairment in thinking and judgment. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with chlorpheniramine. Do not use more than the recommended dose of chlorpheniramine, and avoid activities requiring mental alertness such as driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medication affects you. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions or concerns.
