If any of these occur, you should contact your physician immediately. Also, an overdose of this drug can damage your liver or even cause death.
This medication can also lead to addiction. It is suggested that the patient avoid vigilance and reflexive activities, as this drug may also temporarily impair hearing. This medication should also be avoided with alcohol.
