Sadržaj pakiranja i druge informacije

1.

Što je MIDZA i za što se koristi

Što je MIDZA

MIDZA sadrži lakozamid. On pripada skupini lijekova koji se nazivaju „antiepileptički lijekovi“. Ti se

lijekovi upotrebljavaju u liječenju epilepsije.

Ovaj Vam je lijek dan za smanjenje broja napadaja.

Za što se MIDZA koristi

MIDZA se koristi u odraslih, adolescenata i djece od navršene 4 godine života.

Koristi se za liječenje odreĎenog oblika epilepsije koji se naziva „parcijalni napadaji sa sekundarnom

generalizacijom ili bez nje“.

U tom obliku epilepsije napadaji prvo zahvaćaju samo jednu stranu mozga, ali se nakon toga mogu

proširiti i na veća područja zahvaćajući pritom obje strane mozga.

MIDZA se može koristiti samostalno ili s drugim antiepileptičkim lijekovima.

2.

Što morate znati prije nego počnete uzimati lijek MIDZA

Nemojte uzimati lijek MIDZA:

ako ste alergični na lakozamid ili neki drugi sastojak ovog lijeka (naveden u dijelu 6.). Ako niste

sigurni jeste li alergični, molimo razgovarajte sa svojim liječnikom

ako bolujete od odreĎene vrste poremećaja srčanih otkucaja koji se naziva AV-blok drugog ili trećeg

stupnja.

Nemojte uzimati lijek MIDZA ako se na Vas odnosi bilo koja od gornjih tvrdnji. Ako niste sigurni u to,

obratite se svom liječniku ili ljekarniku prije nego uzmete ovaj lijek.

Upozorenja i mjere opreza

Obratite se svom liječniku prije nego uzmete lijek MIDZA:

ako imate misli o samoozljeĎivanju ili samoubojstvu. Mali broj ljudi koji se liječe antiepileptičkim

lijekovima kao što je lakozamid imali su misli o samoozljeĎivanju ili samoubojstvu. Ako Vam se

ikada pojave takve misli, odmah obavijestite svog liječnika.

ako imate srčani problem koji utječe na srčani ritam i često imate osobito usporene, ubrzane ili

nepravilne otkucaje srca (kao što su AV blok, treperenje pretklijetki i lepršanje pretklijetki).

ako bolujete od teške srčane bolesti kao što je zatajenje srca ili ste imali srčani udar.

ako često imate omaglicu ili padate. MIDZA može kod Vas izazvati omaglicu - to može povećati

rizik od slučajne ozljede ili pada. Stoga morate biti oprezni dok se ne priviknete na učinke ovog

lijeka.

Ako se bilo koja od gornjih tvrdnji odnosi na Vas (ili niste sigurni u to), obratite se svom liječniku ili

ljekarniku prije nego uzmete lijek MIDZA.

Djeca mlaĎa od 4 godine

MIDZA se ne preporučuje za djecu mlaĎu od 4 godine zato što još nije poznato je li djelotvoran i siguran

za djecu u toj dobnoj skupini.

Drugi lijekovi i MIDZA

Obavijestite svog liječnika ili ljekarnika ako uzimate, nedavno ste uzeli ili biste mogli uzeti bilo koje

druge lijekove.

Posebice obavijestite svog liječnika ili ljekarnika ako uzimate bilo koji od sljedećih lijekova koji utječu na

srce zato što MIDZA takoĎer može utjecati na srce:

lijekovi za liječenje srčanih problema

lijekovi koji mogu prouzročiti „produljeni PR-interval“ na snimci srca (elektrokardiogram, EKG) kao

što su lijekovi za liječenje epilepsije ili ublažavanje bolova zvani karbamazepin, lamotrigin ili

pregabalin

lijekovi koji se koriste u liječenju odreĎenih vrsta nepravilnog srčanog ritma ili zatajenja srca.

Ako se bilo koja od gornjih tvrdnji odnosi na Vas (ili niste sigurni u to), obratite se svom liječniku ili

ljekarniku prije nego uzmete lijek MIDZA.

Obavijestite svog liječnika ili ljekarnika i ako uzimate bilo koji od sljedećih lijekova zato što oni mogu

pojačati ili smanjiti učinak lijeka MIDZA na Vaše tijelo:

lijekovi za liječenje gljivičnih infekcija zvani flukonazol, itrakonazol ili ketokonazol

lijek za HIV zvan ritonavir

lijekovi koji se upotrebljavaju u liječenju bakterijskih infekcija zvani klaritromicin ili rifampicin

biljni lijek koji se upotrebljava u liječenju blage tjeskobe i depresije zvan gospina trava.

Ako se bilo koja od gornjih tvrdnji odnosi na Vas (ili niste sigurni u to), obratite se svom liječniku ili

ljekarniku prije nego uzmete lijek MIDZA.

MIDZA s alkoholom

Kao sigurnosnu mjeru opreza ne uzimajte lijek MIDZA s alkoholom.

Trudnoća i dojenje

Ako ste trudni ili dojite, mislite da biste mogli biti trudni ili planirate imati dijete, obratite se svom

liječniku ili ljekarniku za savjet prije nego uzmete ovaj lijek.

Ne preporučuje se uzimanje lijeka MIDZA ako ste trudni ili dojite jer nisu poznati učinci lijeka MIDZA

na trudnoću i na plod ili novoroĎenče. TakoĎer nije poznato izlučuje li se lijek MIDZA u majčino

mlijeko. Odmah obavijestite svog liječnika ako ste trudni ili ako planirate imati dijete; liječnik će Vam

pomoći u donošenju odluke trebate li uzimati lijek MIDZA ili ne.

H A L M E D

04 - 01 - 2018

O D O B R E N O

Nemojte prekinuti liječenje bez prethodnog savjetovanja s liječnikom jer Vam se zbog toga mogu

povećati napadaji. Pogoršanje Vaše bolesti može biti štetno i za dijete.

Upravljanje vozilima i strojevima

Nemojte voziti automobil ili bicikl, niti koristiti alate ili strojeve dok ne znate kako ovaj lijek utječe na

Vas jer MIDZA može uzrokovati omaglicu ili zamućen vid.

3.

Kako uzimati lijek MIDZA

Uvijek uzmite ovaj lijek točno onako kako Vam je rekao liječnik ili ljekarnik. Provjerite s liječnikom ili

ljekarnikom ako niste sigurni.

Uzimanje lijeka MIDZA

MIDZA se mora uzimati dvaput na dan svakog dana, jednom ujutro i jednom navečer.

Nastojte ga uzimati u otprilike isto vrijeme svakog dana.

Progutajte tabletu lijeka MIDZA uz čašu vode.

Lijek MIDZA možete uzimati s hranom ili bez nje.

Obično se počinje uzimati niska doza svakog dana, koju će Vaš liječnik polako povećavati tijekom

nekoliko tjedana. Kada dosegnete dozu koja Vam odgovara, koja se naziva „doza održavanja“, uzimat

ćete istu količinu svakog dana. MIDZA se koristi za dugotrajno liječenje. Lijek MIDZA morate nastaviti

uzimati sve dok Vam liječnik ne odredi da prestanete.

Koliku dozu uzeti

U nastavku su navedene uobičajene preporučene doze lijeka MIDZA za različite dobne skupine i tjelesne

težine.

Liječnik može propisati drugačiju dozu ako imate problema s bubrezima ili jetrom.

Odrasli, adolescenti i djeca tjelesne težine 50 kg ili više

Kada uzimate samo lijek MIDZA

Uobičajena je početna doza MIDZA 50 mg dvaput na dan.

Vaš liječnik takoĎer može propisati početnu dozu od 100 mg MIDZA dvaput na dan.

Liječnik može povećati Vašu dozu koju uzimate dvaput na dan svakih tjedan dana za 50 mg dok ne

dosegnete dozu održavanja izmeĎu 100 mg i 300 mg dvaput na dan.

Kad uzimate lijek MIDZA s drugim antepileptičkim lijekovima

Uobičajena je početna doza MIDZA 50 mg dvaput na dan.

Liječnik može povećati Vašu dozu koju uzimate dvaput na dan svakih tjedan dana za 50 mg dok ne

dosegnete dozu održavanja izmeĎu 100 mg i 200 mg dvaput na dan.

Ako je Vaša tjelesna težina 50 kg ili veća, Vaš liječnik može odlučiti započeti liječenje lijekom MIDZA

jednokratnom „udarnom“ dozom od 200 mg. Zatim biste približno 12 sati poslije započeli s uzimanjem

svoje stalne doze održavanja.

Djeca i adolescenti tjelesne težine manje od 50 kg

Doza ovisi o njihovoj tjelesnoj težini. Obično započinju liječenje sirupom i prelaze na tablete samo ako

mogu uzimati tablete i dobiti točnu dozu s različitim jačinama tableta. Drugi proizvodi lakozamida su

dostupni u obliku sirupa. Liječnik će propisati formulaciju koja im najbolje odgovara.

Ako uzmete više lijeka MIDZA nego što ste trebali

Ako ste uzeli više lijeka MIDZA nego što ste smjeli, odmah se obratite liječniku. Nemojte pokušavati

voziti. Možda ćete doživjeti:

omaglicu

mučninu ili povraćanje

O D O B R E N O

napadaje, poremećaje srčanog ritma kao što su usporeni, ubrzani ili nepravilni otkucaji srca, komu ili

pad krvnog tlaka praćen ubrzanim otkucajima srca i znojenjem.

Ako ste zaboravili uzeti lijek MIDZA

Ako primijetite da ste propustili uzeti dozu, a od propuštene doze je proteklo manje od 6 sati, dozu

uzmite čim se sjetite.

Ako je od propuštene doze proteklo više od 6 sati, nemojte uzimati propuštenu tabletu. Umjesto toga,

uzmite lijek MIDZA u sljedeće vrijeme kada ga uobičajeno uzimate.

Nemojte uzeti dvostruku dozu kako biste nadoknadili zaboravljenu dozu.

Ako prestanete uzimati lijek MIDZA

Ne prekidajte uzimanje lijeka MIDZA bez konzultacije sa svojim liječnikom budući da bi se

epilepsija mogla ponovo pojaviti ili pogoršati.

Ako liječnik odluči prekinuti Vaše liječenje lijekom MIDZA, dat će Vam upute kako postupno

smanjivati dozu.

U slučaju bilo kakvih pitanja u vezi s primjenom ovog lijeka, obratite se Vašem liječniku ili ljekarniku.
