Sadržaj pakiranja i druge informacije

1.

Što je Ymana i za što se koristi

Ymana se ubraja u skupinu lijekova poznatih kao lijekovi protiv demencije.

Gubitak pamćenja u Alzheimerovoj bolesti pripisuje se poremećaju prijenosa signala u mozgu.

Mozak sadržava takozvane N-metil-D-aspartat (NMDA) receptore koji su uključeni u prijenos

živčanih signala važnih u učenju i pamćenju. Ymana spada u skupinu lijekova poznatih kao

antagonisti NMDA receptora. Ymana djeluje na navedene NMDA receptore poboljšavajući

prijenos živčanih signala i pamćenje

- Ymana se koristi za liječenje bolesnika s umjerenom do teškom Alzheimerovom bolešću.

2.

Što morate znati prije nego počnete uzimati Ymanu

Nemojte uzimati Ymanu

- ako ste alergični na memantinklorid ili bilo koji drugi sastojak ovog lijeka (naveden u dijelu 6).

Ako niste sigurni odnosi li se gore navedeno na Vas, razgovarajte s Vašim liječnikom ili

ljekarnikom prije nego što uzmete Ymana tablete.

Upozorenja i mjere opreza

Obratite se svom liječniku ili ljekarniku prije nego počnete uzimati Ymanu:

ako u anamnezi imate epileptičke napadaje,

ako ste nedavno imali infarkt miokarda (srčani udar), ili ako bolujete od kongestivnog

zatajenja srca ili nekontrolirane hipertenzije (povišeni krvni tlak).

U tim slučajevima liječenje mora biti pažljivo nadzirano, a Vaš liječnik treba redovito ponovno

procjenjivati kliničku korist od uzimanja Ymane.

Ako imate oštećenje funkcije bubrega (problemi s bubrezima), liječnik treba pažljivo pratiti

funkciju Vaših bubrega i ovisno o njoj, prilagoditi dozu memantina, ako je to potrebno.

Trebalo bi izbjegavati istodobnu primjenu lijekova koji se zovu amantadin (za liječenje

Parkinsonove bolesti), ketamin (tvar koja se obično koristi kao anestetik), dekstrometorfan

(obično se koristi za liječenje kašlja) i ostalih antagonista NMDA.

Djeca i adolescenti

Ymana se ne preporučuje za djecu i adolescente mlađe od 18 godina.

Drugi lijekovi i Ymana

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

bilo koje druge lijekove.

Posebice, Ymana može promijeniti učinak sljedećih lijekova te će liječnik možda morati

prilagoditi njihovu dozu:

amantadina, ketamina, dekstrometorfana;

dantrolena, baklofena;

cimetidina, ranitidina, prokainamida, kinidina, kinina, nikotina;

hidroklorotiazida (ili bilo koja kombinacija s hidroklorotiazidom);

antikolinergika (lijekovi koje se uglavnom koriste za liječenje poremećaja kretanja ili

crijevnih grčeva);

antikonvulziva (lijekovi koji se koriste za sprječavanje i ublažavanje napadaja);

barbiturata (lijekovi koji se uglavnom koriste za uspavljivanje);

dopaminergičkih agonista (lijekovi kao što su L-dopa, bromokriptin);

neuroleptika (lijekovi koji se koriste za liječenje mentalnih poremećaj

oralnih antikoagulansa.

Ako idete u bolnicu, obavijestite svog liječnika da uzimate Ymanu.

Ymana s hranom, pićem i alkoholom

Ako ste nedavno promijenili, ili namjeravate značajno promijeniti svoj način prehrane (npr.

prijeći s normalne prehrane na strogu vegetarijansku prehranu), ili ako bolujete od renalne

tubularne acidoze (RTA - izrazito povećana količina tvari koje tvore kiseline u krvi zbog

H A L M E D

09 - 09 - 2014

O D O B R E N O

poremećaja rada bubrega (slaba funkcija bubrega)) ili teških infekcija mokraćnih putova, trebali

biste obavijestiti svog liječnika, jer će Vam liječnik možda morati prilagoditi dozu lijeka.

Trudnoća, dojenje i plodnost

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 primjena Ymane u trudnica.

Žene koje uzimaju Ymana tablete ne bi trebale dojiti.

Upravljanje vozilima i strojevima

Liječnik će Vam reći dopušta li Vam Vaša bolest sigurno upravljanje vozilima i rad sa

strojevima. Ymana također može promijeniti Vašu sposobnost reagiranja, što čini upravljanje

vozilima i rad sa strojevima neprikladnima.

3.

Kako uzimati Ymanu

Uvijek uzimajte ovaj lijek točno onako kako Vam je rekao Vaš liječnik. Provjerite s Vašim

liječnikom ili ljekarnikom ako niste sigurni.

Doziranje

Preporučena doza Ymane za odrasle i starije bolesnike je 20 mg jedanput na dan. Kako bi se

smanjio rizik od nuspojava ta doza se postiže postupno, pridržavajući se sljedeće sheme dnevnog

5 mg dnevno

3. tjedan (15. – 21. dan)

15 mg dnevno

4. tjedan i nadalje

se povećava na 10 mg jedanput na dan u drugom tjednu te na 15 mg jedanput na dan u trećem

tjednu. Od četvrtog tjedna nadalje uobičajena doza je 20 mg jedanput na dan.

Doza održavanja

Preporučena dnevna doza je 20 mg jedanput na dan.

Za nastavak liječenja posavjetujte se sa svojim liječnikom.

Doziranje u bolesnika s oštećenom funkcijom bubrega

Ako imate oštećenu funkciju bubrega, liječnik će odlučiti o dozi koja odgovara Vašem stanju. U

tom slučaju liječnik bi trebao u određenim razmacima nadzirati funkciju bubrega.
