Before Using This Medicine

In deciding to use a medicine, the risks of taking the medicine must be weighed against the good it will do. This is a decision you and your doctor will make. For lypressin, the following should be considered:

Allergies - Tell your doctor if you have ever had any unusual or allergic reaction to lypressin or vasopressin. Also tell your health care professional if you are allergic to any other substances, such as foods, preservatives, or dyes.

Pregnancy - Studies on the effects in pregnancy have not been done in either humans or animals.

Breast-feeding - It is not known whether lypressin passes into breast milk. However, this medicine has not been reported to cause problems in nursing babies.

Children - Although there is no specific information comparing use of lypressin in children with use in other age groups, this medicine is not expected to cause different side effects or problems in children than it does in adults.

Older adults - Many medicines have not been studied specifically in older people. Therefore, it may not be known whether they work exactly the same way they do in younger adults or if they cause different side effects or problems in older people. There is no specific information comparing use of lypressin in the elderly with use in other age groups.

Other medicines - Although certain medicines should not be used together at all, in other cases two different medicines may be used together even if an interaction might occur. In these cases, your doctor may want to change the dose, or other precautions may be necessary. Tell your health care professional if you are taking any other prescription or nonprescription (over-the-counter [OTC]) medicine.

Other medical problems - The presence of other medical problems may affect the use of lypressin. Make sure you tell your doctor if you have any other medical problems, especially:

  • Hay fever or other allergies or
  • Infection of ears, lungs, nose, or throat or
  • Stuffy nose - May prevent nasal lypressin from being absorbed into the bloodstream, through the lining of the nose
  • High blood pressure - Lypressin may increase blood pressure
