Risks and warnings

You should know the risks and warnings of Rigix to prevent its misuse.

There are some specific circumstances under which the use of certain medications is contraindicated or considered dangerous. So if you are taking any medicine it's always a good practice to familiarize yourself with its risks and warnings.

The risks and warnings associated with Rigix are:

1. Pregnancy and breastfeeding

If you are pregnant, do not take Rigix unless your doctor advises. It can affect the functioning of your baby’s health. Breastfeeding mothers should also consult with a healthcare provider before taking it.

2. Allergy or Hypersensitivity

If you are allergic to Cetirizine, do not take Rigix or any other medicine with the same generic name because it can result in a life-threatening condition called anaphylactic shock. Always inform your healthcare provider about the documented allergies you have.

Anaphylactic shock is a rare but severe allergic reaction that if not treated at the right time, can be life-threatening. It shows the signs and symptoms such as hives, pale skin, labored breathing, itching, excessive salivation, feeling too warm, a weak and rapid pulse, nausea, vomiting, runny nose, sneezing, swollen lips and tongue, wheezing, dizziness, low blood pressure, and tingling hands, feet, mouth, or scalp.

3. Asthma

In most cases, if asthma is caused by an allergy, the doctors prescribe an anti-allergy medication. But sometimes, they may thicken the bronchial secretions, resulting in worsening asthma. Therefore you must exercise caution while taking desloratadine with asthma. Take it on the advice of your healthcare provider.

4. Kidney failure

If your kidneys do not work well, the healthcare provider may lower the dose of the drug. It happens because your kidneys are meant to excrete out the waste and toxins. If that does not happen, the toxins may build up in your body, leading to severe adverse effects. Therefore, you must inform your health care provider about your complete health condition.

5. Liver diseases

Patients with liver disease should take Rigix with caution. It is because your liver helps in the metabolism and excretion of drugs. When it does not work efficiently due to any disease, it can cause an accumulation of the drug in your body, leading to severe adverse effects.

6. Operating machinery

Do not drive a car or operate any machinery while you take Rigix, as it can cause slight sedation, which can eventually lead to accidents.
