What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before taking carbinoxamine (Arbinoxa, Palgic)?
You should not use carbinoxamine if you are allergic to it.
Do not breast-feed a baby while taking carbinoxamine.
Do not use carbinoxamine if you have used an MAO inhibitor such as furazolidone (Furoxone), isocarboxazid (Marplan), phenelzine (Nardil), rasagiline (Azilect), selegiline (Eldepryl, Emsam, Zelapar), or tranylcypromine (Parnate) in the last 14 days. A dangerous drug interaction could occur, leading to serious side effects.
To make sure you can safely take carbinoxamine, tell your doctor if you have any of these other conditions:
FDA pregnancy category C. It is not known whether carbinoxamine will harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant while using this medication.

How should I take carbinoxamine (Arbinoxa, Palgic)?
Take exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label. Cough or cold medicine is usually taken only for a short time until your symptoms clear up.
Measure liquid medicine with a special dose measuring spoon or medicine cup, not with a regular table spoon. If you do not have a dose measuring device, ask your pharmacist for one.
Call your doctor if your symptoms do not improve, if they get worse, or if you also have a fever.
Store at room temperature away from moisture, heat, and light.
