Interaction of Biltin 20 mg

Concomitant intake of Biltin 20 mg and Ketoconazole or Erythromycin or Diltiazem increased C max of Biltin 20 mg. The psychomotor performance after concomitant intake of alcohol and Biltin 20 mg was similar to that observed after intake of alcohol and placebo. Concomitant intake of Biltin 20 mg and Lorazepam 3 mg for 8 days did not potentiate the depressant CNS effects of Lorazepam.

Contraindications

Biltin 20 mg is contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients of the tablet.

Side Effects of Biltin 20 mg

The most commonly reported side effects in clinical trial are headache, dizziness, somnolence and fatigue. These adverse events occurred with a comparable frequency in patients receiving placebo.

Pregnancy & Lactation

There are no adequate or limited amount of data for the use of Biltin 20 mg in pregnant women and during breast feeding and on the effects on fertility. In case of pregnancy or breast feeding, Biltin 20 mg should be avoided during pregnancy, unless advised otherwise by a physician.

Overdose Effects of Biltin 20 mg

In clinical trials, after administration of Biltin 20 mg at doses 10 to 11 times the therapeutic dose (220 mg as single dose; or 200 mg/day for 7 days) frequency of treatment-emergent adverse events was two times higher than with placebo. The adverse reactions most frequently reported were dizziness, headache and nausea. No serious adverse events and no significant prolongation in the QTc interval were reported.

Storage Conditions

Keep below 30°C temperature, protected from light and moisture. Keep out of reach of children.

Use In Special Populations

Use in patients with impaired hepatic & renal function: There is no clinical experience in patients with hepatic impairment. Since Biltin 20 mg is not metabolized and renal clearance is its major elimination route, hepatic impairment is not expected to increase the systemic exposure above the safety margin. Therefore, no dosage adjustment is required in patients with hepatic impairment. No dosage adjustment is required in patients with renal impairment.Geriatrics (>65 years of age): No dosage adjustments are necessary in patients over 65 years.Pediatrics (<6 years of age): The safety and efficacy of Biltin 20 mg in children under 6 years of age have not been established.
