In any case, the product must not be used for more than 4 consecutive days, unless otherwise prescribed by a doctor, as unwanted effects may occur. A higher dosage of the product, even if taken topically and for a short period of time, can give rise to serious systemic effects.

The use of the product can sometimes cause pupillary dilation, systemic effects from absorption (hypertension, cardiac disorders, hyperglycemia), increased intraocular pressure, nausea, headache. Rarely, hypersensitivity phenomena may occur. In this case it is necessary to interrupt the treatment and consult the doctor so that, where necessary, suitable therapy can be instituted. The patient is invited to report any undesirable effects not described to the doctor or pharmacist.
The product, although presenting poor systemic absorption, must be used with caution in patients suffering from hypertension, hyperthyroidism, cardiac disorders, bronchial asthma and hyperglycemia (diabetes).

The product should be kept out of the reach of children as accidental ingestion can cause CNS depression (marked sedation or hypotonia).
