When not to Use
Ebastine is contraindicated:• In patients with known sensitivity to ebastine or to any excipient of the product.• In children under 12 years of age in the absence of efficacy and safety data.• In cases of phenylketonuria, due to the presence of aspartame.
Ebastine should be used with caution in patients with severe hepatic impairment.
Since there is a pharmacokinetic interaction with antimycotics of the imidazole type, like ketoconazole and itraconazole or macrolide antibiotics, like erythromycin and antituberculosis agents, like rifampicin, care should be taken when prescribing ebastine with drugs belonging to such groups .
In sensitive patients who react unusually to ebastine, it is advisable to know the individual reactions before a patient drives or carries out complicated activities: somnolence or dizziness may occur.
Ebastine should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit to the patient outweighs the risk to the patient and fetus.
