WARNINGS/PRECAUTIONS

DU is a chronic, recurrent disease; a successful course of treatment should not be expected to alter post healing frequency or severity of duodenal ulceration. May impair excretion of absorbed aluminum with chronic renal failure or those receiving dialysis; aluminum accumulation and toxicity (aluminum osteodystrophy, osteomalacia, encephalopathy) reported with renal impairment. Caution with chronic renal failure and in elderly. (Sus) Episodes of hyperglycemia reported in diabetic patients; may need to adjust dose of antidiabetic treatment during therapy. (Tab) Aspiration with accompanying respiratory complications reported; caution with known conditions that may impair swallowing (eg, recent or prolonged intubation, tracheostomy, prior history of aspiration, dysphagia), or any other conditions that may alter gag and cough reflexes, or diminish oropharyngeal coordination or motility.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

Constipation, diarrhea, N/V, pruritus, rash, dizziness, insomnia, back pain, headache, dry mouth, flatulence, gastric discomfort, indigestion, sleepiness, vertigo.

DRUG INTERACTIONS

Simultaneous administration may reduce the extent of absorption of single doses of cimetidine, digoxin, fluoroquinolone antibiotics, ketoconazole, l-thyroxine, phenytoin, quinidine, ranitidine, tetracycline, and theophylline; administer separately when alterations in bioavailability are felt to be critical and monitor patients appropriately. Subtherapeutic PT with concomitant warfarin reported. Concomitant use with other products that contain aluminum (eg, aluminum-containing antacids) may increase the total body burden of aluminum.
