Loniten®

Che cos’è Loniten e quando si usa?

Loniten e un medicamento ad azione antipertensiva.

Questo medicamento viene somministrato in particolare ai pazienti che non hanno risposto in modo

soddisfacente ad altri medicinali o nei casi in cui altri medicamenti hanno provocato effetti collaterali

gravi.

Loniten deve essere utilizzato solo su prescrizione medica.

Di che cosa occorre inoltre tener conto durante il trattamento?

In genere, il medico assocerà a Loniten altri due medicamenti che aiutano ad abbassare la pressione

arteriosa e che riducono la possibilità che sì verifichino effetti collaterali indesiderati. Infatti se si

abbassa la pressione arteriosa con medicamenti come Loniten, il corpo cerca di riportare la pressione

arteriosa al livello originale trattenendo acqua e sale e facendo battere più velocemente il cuore. Al

fine di evitare questi sintomi il medico prescriverà un diuretico e un farmaco per rallentare il polso

(un “betabloccante”).

Quando non si può assumere Loniten?

La somministrazione di Loniten e sconsigliata nei pazienti con feocromocitoma (tumore della

midollare surrenale) o con ipersensibilità accertata verso le sostanze in esso contenute.

Quando è richiesta prudenza nella somministrazione di Loniten?

Nei casi in cui si manifestassero dolori mai avuti al torace o alle spalle o se dolori esistenti in tali

zone si dovessero aggravare, rivolgersi al medico curante.

Una diminuzione improvvisa della pressione arteriosa o un aumento della frequenza cardiaca

(numero di battiti cardiaci al minuto) in combinazione p.es. con difficoltà respiratoria e crescente

sensazione di oppressione del petto possono indicare alterazioni patologiche della sacca cardiaca. In

questo caso informi immediatamente il suo medico.

Informi il suo medico o il suo farmacista anche:

-in caso di funzione renale limitata o qualora si sia sottoposto a dialisi,

-in caso di funzione epatica limitata,

-in caso di intolleranza a determinati zuccheri (intolleranza congenita al galattosio, carenza di lattasi

o malassorbimento di glucosio e galattosio), poiché Loniten contiene lattosio,

-se soffre di altre malattie,

-se soffre di allergie o

-se assume o applica esternamente altri medicamenti (anche se acquistati di sua iniziativa!).

Questo medicamento può ridurre la capacità di reazione, la capacità di condurre un veicolo e la

capacità di utilizzare attrezzi e macchine.

Si può somministrare Loniten durante la gravidanza o l'allattamento?

Loniten non deve essere somministrato durante la gravidanza o a donne in età fertile che non

applicano una contraccezione.

Loniten può essere somministrato durante l'allattamento solo su esplicita prescrizione del medico.

Come usare Loniten?

All' inizio del trattamento con Loniten il medico stabilirà la posologia in funzione della situazione

personale di ogni paziente.

Per ottenere la massima efficacia e tolleranza è molto importante prendere tutti i medicamenti nelle

quantità prescritte. Né Loniten né gli altri farmaci per la pressione arteriosa debbono essere sospesi

senza aver prima consultato il medico.

Qualora dovesse dimenticare una dose di Loniten, aspetti l’ora della prossima dose e continui con il

suo normale schema terapeutico.

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 Loniten?

Qualora durante il trattamento con Loniten si dovessero manifestare i sintomi seguenti è opportuno

consultare immediatamente il medico curante:

-se il polso, stando a sedere, aumenta di 20 o più battiti;

-se si registra un rapido aumento di peso di oltre 2.5 kg, con eventuali contemporanei rigonfiamenti

del viso, delle mani o delle caviglie. Questi sintomi potrebbero essere segno di aumento del

contenuto dei liquidi nel corpo;

-vertigini o tendenza a svenimenti;

-se si manifesta un’inattesa difficoltà respiratoria;

-se avverte un’improvvisa sensazione di costrizione e/o dolore toracico oppure alla gola, alla

mandibola, alle braccia, alla schiena o dolore addominale alto.

Raramente insorgono reazioni cutanee allergiche e infiammatorie che, a seconda del grado di

intensità, spaziano da rossori della pelle fino alla formazione di vesciche con distaccamento della

pelle.

Oltre agli effetti collaterali gravi sopraelencati, durante l’assunzione di Loniten si possono

manifestare anche i seguenti effetti secondari più lievi:

-nausea e/o vomito, fastidio intestinale e allo stomaco, (dolorosa) sensazione di tensione al torace;

-aumento della crescita dei peli: dopo alcune settimane di trattamento in 8 pazienti su 10 i peli fini

del corpo diventano più scuri o più lunghi. A terapia ultimata questa crescita irregolare scompare

dopo 1–6 mesi.

Se osserva effetti collaterali qui non descritti dovrebbe informare il suo medico o il suo farmacista.

Di che altro occorre tener conto?

Loniten non può essere utilizzato oltre la data indicata con “EXP” (scadenza; mese/anno) sulla

confezione.

Non conservare a temperatura superiore ai 25° C, al riparo dall’umidità e fuori dalla portata dei

bambini.

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

darle ulteriori informazioni.

Cosa contiene Loniten?

1 compressa di Loniten contiene 2.5 mg o 10 mg di minoxidil così come le seguenti sostanze

ausiliarie: lattosio, cellulosa microcristallina, amido di mais, diossido di silicio e stearato di
