How it works
So In general, benzodiazepines such as alprazolam are taken for short periods only (for example 2 to 4 weeks). Continuous long term use consequently is not recommended unless advised by your doctor. The use of benzodiazepines may lead to dependence on the medicine.
Do not take this medicine if:
- You are allergic to alprazolam, benzodiazepines or any of the ingredients listed at the end of this leaflet.
Some of the symptoms of an allergic reaction may include skin rash, itching or hives, swelling of the face, lips or tongue which may cause difficulty in swallowing or breathing, wheezing or shortness of breath.
- You have had any of the following:
– severe and chronic lung disease
– myasthenia gravis, a condition which causes severe muscle weakness.
- You are pregnant.
Kalma may affect your unborn baby if you take it during pregnancy.
Your doctor will discuss the risks and benefits of taking this medicine during pregnancy.
- You are breastfeeding.
Kalma passes into the breast milk and may cause drowsiness, weight loss and feeding difficulties in the infant.
