ben-u-ron® 1000 mg compresse

Che cos’è ben-u-ron 1000 mg compresse e quando si usa?

ben-u-ron 1000 mg compresse contiene il principio attivo paracetamolo, che agisce contro il dolore e

la febbre.

ben-u-ron 1000 mg compresse è indicato per il trattamento immediato di mal di testa, mal di denti,

dolori articolari e dei legamenti, mal di schiena, dolori mestruali, dolori causati da traumi (p. es. di

tipo sportivo), dolori da artrosi e associati a malattie da raffreddamento e febbre.

Su prescrizione medica.

Di che cosa occorre inoltre tener conto durante il trattamento?

Come tutti gli analgesici e gli antipiretici anche ben-u-ron non deve essere assunto senza prescrizione

medica per più di 5 giorni o in caso di febbre per più di 3 giorni.

Gli antidolorifici non devono essere assunti regolarmente per un lungo periodo senza il controllo del

medico. I dolori persistenti necessitano di un accertamento medico.

In caso di febbre alta, sintomi di infezione secondaria o sintomi persistenti per più di tre giorni si

raccomanda di consultare il medico.

Si raccomanda di non superare il dosaggio prescritto dal medico.

Per prevenire il rischio di sovradosaggio è necessario assicurarsi che i medicamenti assunti

contemporaneamente (p.es. altri analgesici, antipiretici o medicamenti contro il raffreddore) non

contengano paracetamolo. Un sovradosaggio di paracetamolo può causare un grave danno epatico.

Occorre inoltre considerare che l’assunzione protratta nel tempo di antidolorifici può contribuire alla

persistenza del mal di testa.

L’uso prolungato di analgesici, specialmente in caso di associazione di diversi principi attivi

antidolorifici, può provocare delle lesioni permanenti ai reni con rischio di insufficienza renale.

Quando non si può assumere ben-u-ron 1000 mg compresse?

In caso di ipersensibilità al principio attivo paracetamolo e ad altre sostanze analoghe (p.es.

proparacetamolo) o a una delle sostanze ausiliarie (vedi “Cosa contiene ben-u-ron 1000 mg

compresse?”). Una tale ipersensibilità si manifesta, ad esempio, con asma, difficoltà di respirazione,

disturbi della circolazione, gonfiori della pelle e delle mucose oppure eruzioni cutanee (orticaria).

-In presenza di malattie epatiche o renali gravi (p.es. epatite acuta, cirrosi epatica, ascite, ovvero

accumulo di liquido nella cavità peritoneale).

-In presenza di un disturbo ereditario del fegato (cosiddetta malattia di Meulengracht).

-In caso di abuso di alcool.

-ben-u-ron 1000 mg compresse non è adatto ai bambini di età inferiore a 15 anni.

Quando è richiesta prudenza nell’assunzione di ben-u-ron 1000 mg compresse?

È necessario consultare il medico prima dell’assunzione:

-in presenza di lesioni ai reni o al fegato;

-in presenza di una rara malattia ereditaria dei globuli rossi, la cosiddetta “carenza di glucosio-6-

fosfatodeidrogenasi”;

-in caso di uso concomitante di medicamenti che influiscono sul fegato, in particolare certi farmaci

contro la tubercolosi e l’epilessia o medicamenti col principio attivo zidovudina utilizzati in caso di

immunodeficienza (AIDS);

-in caso di assunzione dei seguenti medicamenti:

·medicamenti anticoagulanti;

·Cholestyramin (medicamento che riduce i grassi nel sangue);

·Chloramphenicol (medicamento contro le infezioni);

·Metoclopramid (medicamento contro nausea e vomito);

·Phenytoin, Phenobarbital, Carbamazepin (medicamento contro epilessia (convulsioni));

·Rifampicin, Isoniazid (medicamento contro la tubercolosi);

·Probenecid (medicamento contro la gotta);

·Zidovudin (medicamento contro l’infezione HIV (AIDS)).

-in caso di infezione grave (p.es. sepsi);

-in caso di sottopeso o denutrizione;

-in caso di consumo regolare di alcol.

Si sconsiglia l’assunzione contemporanea di paracetamolo e alcool, soprattutto a digiuno, perché

aumenta il rischio di danni epatici. Le persone ipersensibili agli analgesici o agli antireumatici

possono avere una reazione di ipersensibilità anche al paracetamolo (vedi “Quali effetti collaterali

può avere ben-u-ron 1000 mg compresse?”).

In casi molto rari il paracetamolo può causare reazioni cutanee gravi. In caso di insorgenza di

reazioni cutanee, interrompere l’assunzione di ben-u-ron 1000 mg compresse e consultare il medico

(vedi “Quali effetti collaterali può avere ben-u-ron 1000 mg compresse?“).

Bambini:

ben-u-ron 1000 mg compresse non è adatto ai bambini di età inferiore a 15 anni. Per questi pazienti

sono disponibili medicamenti in formulazioni diverse o con minore contenuto del principio attivo.

ben-u-ron 1000 mg non influisce sulla capacità di condurre un veicolo e sulla capacità di utilizzare

macchinari.

Tuttavia, l’assunzione di un analgesico richiede sempre attenzione.

Informare il medico o farmacista nel caso in cui:

-soffra di altre malattie,

-soffra di allergie o

-assuma o applichi esternamente altri medicamenti (anche se acquistati di sua iniziativa).

Si può assumere ben-u-ron 1000 mg compresse durante la gravidanza o l’allattamento?

Per precauzione, durante la gravidanza o l’allattamento bisogna evitare il più possibile di utilizzare

medicamenti o chiedere consiglio al medico o al farmacista.

Il paracetamolo è un principio attivo che può essere impiegato, per un breve periodo e nel dosaggio

indicato, anche in gravidanza.

Anche se passa in minime quantità nel latte materno, il paracetamolo si può usare anche durante

l’allattamento.

Come usare ben-u-ron 1000 mg compresse?

Non superare la dose massima giornaliera indicata.

ben-u-ron 1000 mg compresse non deve essere assunto da adulti e giovani di peso inferiore a 50 kg,

poiché questo può provocare un sovradosaggio (più della dose consigliata) e quindi un danno

epatico.

Adulti e adoloscenti oltre i 15 anni (oltre i 50 kg):

1 compressa come dose singola (= 1000 mg di paracetamolo). La dose massima giornaliera (24 ore) è

di 4 compresse (= 4000 mg di paracetamolo).

Tra un’assunzione e l’altra devono trascorrere almeno 4 ore.

Se necessario, la compressa è divisibile in due parti che si possono ingerire una dopo altra. Si prega

di notare che la divisione della compressa in due pezzi non è adatta per dimezzare la dose (500 mg).

ben-u-ron 1000 mg va assunto con sufficiente quantità di liquido.

L’assunzione dopo i pasti può ritardarne l’effetto.

In caso di assunzione incontrollata (sovradosaggio) consultare immediatamente il medico, anche in

assenza di disturbi. A causa del rischio di un grave danno epatico, vanno intraprese immediate

misure mediche. Nausea, vomito, mal di pancia, inappetenza o un quadro patologico generale

possono essere indicativi di un sovradosaggio, ma si manifestano solo diverse ore (fino a un giorno)

dopo l‘assunzione.

Non modifichi di propria iniziativa la posologia prescritta. Se ritiene che l’azione del medicamento

sia troppo debole o troppo forte ne parli al suo medico o al suo farmacista.

Quali effetti collaterali può avere ben-u-ron 1000 mg compresse?

L’assunzione o l’utilizzo di ben-u-ron 1000 mg compresse può determinare i seguenti effetti

collaterali:

Raramente reazioni di ipersensibilità come prurito, gonfiori della pelle e delle mucose o eruzioni

cutanee anche molto gravi (molto rare), nausea, difficoltà di respirazione o asma. Se compaiono

segni di ipersensibilità o emorragie/ematomi, è necessario interrompere l’assunzione del

medicamento e rivolgersi al medico. Sono state inoltre osservate alterazioni del quadro ematologico,

come un numero ridotto di piastrine (trombocitopenia) o una forte riduzione di determinati globuli

bianchi (agranulocitosi).

In caso di effetti collaterali qui non descritti è necessario informare il suo medico o il suo farmacista.

Di che altro occorre tener conto?

Il medicamento non deve essere utilizzato oltre la data indicata con “EXP“ sul contenitore.

Conservare a temperatura ambiente (15°C–25°C) e lontano dalla portata dei bambini.

Il paracetamolo può alterare la misurazione della glicemia mediante il metodo della glucosio

ossidasi.

I medicamenti con il principio attivo paracetamolo non devono essere somministrati ai bambini che

abbiano assunto inavvertitamente alcol.

Il medico o il farmacista, che sono in possesso di un’informazione professionale dettagliata, possono

fornire ulteriori informazioni.
