Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking an antihypertensive medication, a sedative, or a medication that may lower blood pressure.

orthostatic hypotension , dry mouth, impotence , frigidity, stopping menstruation, nipple milk flow, increased breast volume (in both men and women), rash.
Exceptionally: spasm of the face, involuntary or inadequate movements, tremors, abnormal stiffness, disorders of accommodation , blockage of urine, constipation.
"Focus" of the eye, allowing clear vision close up. Presbyopia is the most common disorder of accommodation; some drugs such as atropine may cause passenger accommodation problems.
adenoma of the prostate
Increase in the volume of the prostate gland located under the bladder of man. This increase in volume is benign, has no relationship to cancer, but can interfere with the passage of urine into the urethra through the gland.
Symptoms that suggest the presence of a prostate adenoma are:
- difficulty urinating (slowness, weakness of the spray);
- the need to get up several times at night to urinate;
- urges to urinate imperiously and difficult to control.
General name designating a family of substances that have the property of being able to be mixed with water and fatty substances. The most common alcohol is ethyl alcohol (ethanol), but there are many other alcohols: methanol, butanol, etc. The degree of alcoholic solution corresponds to the volume of pure alcohol present in 100 ml of solution, knowing that 1 glass of wine or 1/2 of beer (25 cl) contains about 8 g of alcohol.
When alcohol is used as an antiseptic, an unpleasant odor denaturant is often added to prevent drinking. Contrary to a widespread belief, alcohol at 70o (or even 60o) is a better antiseptic than alcohol at 90o.
Medication that combats vomiting.
Medication that fights against excess blood pressure. The main ones are beta-blockers, diuretics, calcium channel blockers, ACE inhibitors, angiotensin II inhibitors and vasodilators.
Drug that reproduces the effects of dopamine.
The main dopaminergic drugs are used in Parkinson's disease or in erectile dysfunction. They should not be associated with neuroleptics, which may nullify their effect.
Disease characterized by increased pressure of the fluids contained in the eye (intraocular hypertension).
This general term covers two totally different affections:
- Open angle glaucoma or chronic glaucoma is the most common; it is generally symptom-free, detected by the measurement of intraocular tension in the ophthalmologist. It does not cause acute seizures, and treatment relies primarily on beta-blocking eye drops. People with open-angle glaucoma should not use cortisone derivatives without prior ophthalmologic advice.
- Closed-angle glaucoma or acute glaucoma is more rare. Between seizures, intraocular tension is normal. But the inadvertent use of atropine medicines (especially eye drops) causes an acute crisis of intraocular hypertension which can permanently damage the retina in a few hours. It is an ophthalmological emergency that is recognized by a brutally red eye, horribly painful, hard as a glass ball, and whose vision becomes blurred.
Contraindications for atropine medicines are limited to those who have already had closed-angle glaucoma or have been detected by an ophthalmologist. Those who suffer from chronic open angle glaucoma are not affected by these contraindications.
Reduced blood pressure when changing from elongated to standing. Due mostly to drugs, orthostatic hypotension results in dizziness with risk of fall, especially in the elderly. These disturbances can be prevented by avoiding sudden changes of position: sit for a few moments at the edge of the bed before standing, slowly rising from a seat, keeping a support before moving.
Wearing compression stockings, which prevents blood from flowing back to the legs while standing, is also used to treat orthostatic hypotension.
Erection impossible or insufficient for penetration.
Inability of the liver to perform its function, which is essentially the elimination of some waste, but also the synthesis of many biological substances essential to the body: albumin, cholesterol and coagulation factors (vitamin K, etc.).
Inability of the kidneys to eliminate waste or medicinal substances. Advanced renal insufficiency does not necessarily result in a decrease in the amount of urine excreted. Only a blood test and creatinine dosage may reveal this disease.
Powder resulting from rapid drying (at low temperature and under vacuum) of a substance dissolved in water (eg soluble coffee). As medicaments, lyophilisates may be dissolved in a solvent for the preparation of an injectable, atrial, nasal, etc. solution. or be presented as a tablet to be dissolved in a glass of water, sucked or allowed to melt under the tongue.
An inherited disease that is characterized by the absence of an enzyme and that leads to the accumulation in the blood of a toxic product. Screening is systematic at birth. Treatment is based on a specific diet during early childhood.
- Quiets, calms down.
- Medication belonging to different families: anxiolytics, hypnotics, analgesics, antitussives, antiepileptics, neuroleptics, etc. but also antidepressants, antihistamines H1, antihypertensives. A sedative can be responsible for drowsiness and increase the effects of alcohol.
