Während der Behandlung mit Fluconazol Sandoz eco wird von der Einnahme von Johanniskraut-

Erbrechen, Müdigkeit, Bauchschmerzen oder dunkler Urin auftreten, sollten Sie dies Ihrem Arzt oder

Ihrer Ärztin sofort mitteilen. Es ist wichtig, dass Sie Ihren Arzt oder Ihre Ärztin über diese

Symptome umgehend informieren, da möglicherweise Leberprobleme mit schwerwiegendem

Verlauf auftreten können.

Während der Behandlung wird Ihr Arzt bzw. Ihre Ärztin regelmässig die Leberwerte im Blut

überprüfen.

Informieren Sie Ihren Arzt oder Ihre Ärztin unverzüglich beim Auftreten von Hautausschlägen. Sie

könnten allergisch auf den Wirkstoff von Fluconazol Sandoz eco reagieren. In seltenen Fällen
