What happens if I miss a dose (Zymine)?
Since allergy medicine is usually taken only as needed, you may not be on a dosing schedule. If you are taking the medication regularly, take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take the medicine at your next regularly scheduled time. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.
What happens if I overdose (Zymine)?
Seek emergency medical attention if you think you have used too much of this medicine.
What should I avoid while taking triprolidine (Zymine)?
This medication can cause side effects that may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert.
Avoid becoming overheated or dehydrated during exercise and in hot weather.
Avoid using other medicines that make you sleepy (such as pain medication, sleeping pills, muscle relaxers, and medicine to treat depression or anxiety). They can add to sleepiness caused by an antihistamine.
Avoid drinking alcohol while you are taking this medication. Alcohol can add to drowsiness caused by an antihistamine.
Do not use any other over-the-counter cough, cold, allergy, or sleep medication without first asking your doctor or pharmacist. Antihistamines are contained in many medicines available over the counter. If you take certain products together you may accidentally take too much of a certain type of medicine. Read the label of any other medicine you are using to see if it contains an antihistamine such as diphenhydramine or chlorpheniramine.
