MST® Continus®

Mundipharma Medical Company

Che cos'è MST Continus e quando si usa?

MST Continus è un antidolorifico per il trattamento di dolori persistenti di intensità media o forte.

Contiene il principio attivo morfina. Dopo I'assunzione di MST Continus, la morfina viene rilasciata

lentamente nel tratto gastrointestinale ed assorbita nella circolazione sanguigna.

MST Continus deve essere usato esclusivamente su prescrizione medica e sotto regolare controllo

medico.

Quando non si può assumere MST Continus?

·Se è ipersensibile (allergico) al principio attivo morfina o a una delle sostanze ausiliarie,

·se soffre di gravi disturbi respiratori, cioè se il suo respiro è superficiale e rallentato (depressione

respiratoria grave),

·se soffre di una malattia cronica grave dei polmoni che comporta un restringimento delle vie

respiratorie (broncopneumopatia cronica ostruttiva (BPCO) grave),

·in caso di dolori addominali acuti,

·in presenza di paralisi dell'attività intestinale (ileo paralitico).

Quando è richiesta prudenza nella somministrazione di MST Continus?

·In presenza di grave aumento della pressione nel cuore destro in seguito a ipertensione polmonare

(cuore polmonare grave), asma bronchiale grave o disturbi respiratori,

·in caso di insufficienza epatica grave o insufficienza renale,

·in caso di insufficienza della tiroide (ipotiroidismo),

·in caso di insufficienza delle ghiandole surrenali (malattia di Addison),

·in caso di disturbi psichici causati dall'alcool o da intossicazioni, alcolismo o reazioni gravi a una

disintossicazione dall'alcool,

·in presenza di calcoli biliari o altre malattie delle vie biliari,

·in caso di infiammazione del pancreas (pancreatite),

·in presenza di malattie intestinali ostruttive o infiammatorie,

·in caso di ipertrofia prostatica con difficoltà a urinare,

·in presenza di pressione bassa o alta o di malattie cardiocircolatorie preesistenti,

·in caso di lesioni al capo, epilessia o tendenza a convulsioni,

·in caso di assunzione di medicamenti del gruppo degli inibitori delle monoaminossidasi (IMAO);

l'assunzione di MST Continus non è indicata in concomitanza con una terapia a base di IMAO o nei

14 giorni successivi all'interruzione di una terapia di questo tipo,

·se sta allattando.

Se lei è in età avanzata o è fisicamente debole, è più probabile che possa manifestare effetti

collaterali. Sia quindi particolarmente prudente.

Con l'impiego prolungato di MST Continus può svilupparsi assuefazione. In tal caso è possibile che

per ottenere l'effetto analgesico desiderato, lei abbia bisogno di una dose maggiore.

L'assunzione prolungata di MST Continus può inoltre causare una dipendenza fisica. In caso di

interruzione improvvisa del trattamento, possono verificarsi sintomi da astinenza, come

irrequietezza, attacchi di sudorazione e dolori muscolari. Se non necessita più della terapia, deve

ridurre gradualmente la dose quotidiana d'intesa con il suo medico.

Il principio attivo morfina ha un potenziale di abuso simile a quello di tutti gli altri analgesici forti

simili alla morfina. Esiste la possibilità di sviluppare una dipendenza psichica. In caso di abuso di

alcolici, droghe o medicamenti, attuale o pregresso, l'assunzione di MST Continus va evitata.

Nel caso dovesse sottoporsi a un intervento chirurgico, informi i medici che sta assumendo MST

Continus.

Un’assunzione prolungata di antidolorifici morfinosimili come MST Continus può determinare

variazioni ormonali reversibili come ad esempio una diminuita funzionalità della corteccia surrenale

con sintomi quali nausea, vomito, perdita di appetito, affaticamento, debolezza, capogiri o

ipotensione arteriosa o una diminuita funzionalità degli organi sessuali con sintomi quali calo della

libido, disfunzioni erettili o amenorrea.

Alcuni medicamenti possono aumentare la probabilità che si manifestino effetti collaterali (in

particolare compromissione della funzionalità respiratoria, ipotensione, sonnolenza e/o riduzione

dell'attenzione), che nei casi più gravi possono determinare un profondo obnubilamento, il coma e la

morte:

·altri analgesici simili alla morfina (oppioidi),

·sonniferi e tranquillanti (come ad es. le benzodiazepine),

·alcuni medicamenti contro allergie, mal d'auto o nausea,

·alcuni medicamenti contro la depressione e le psicosi,

·alcuni medicamenti per il trattamento delle convulsioni e di alcuni tipi di dolore (ad es. fenitoina,

gabapentin o pregabalin),

·medicamenti per il rilassamento muscolare (miorilassanti).

Informi immediatamente il suo medico o il suo farmacista in caso di utilizzo di uno di questi

medicamenti.

Non beva alcol durante il trattamento con MST Continus. L’assunzione di alcol durante il

trattamento con MST Continus può portare a sonnolenza eccessiva e aumentare il rischio che si

manifestino gravi effetti collaterali quali la respirazione superficiale e il conseguente rischio di

arresto respiratorio e perdita di coscienza, il che in casi gravi può portare al coma e alla morte.

I medicamenti contro l'iperacidità gastrica (antiacidi) vanno assunti con un intervallo di almeno 2 ore

dall'assunzione di MST Continus sospensione retard.

L'uso di MST Continus può portare a risultati positivi ai controlli anti-doping.

MST Continus può ridurre la capacità di reazione, la capacità di condurre un veicolo e la capacità di

utilizzare attrezzi o macchine. Chieda quindi al suo medico se può guidare l'auto, utilizzare macchine

o eseguire lavori pericolosi.

MST Continus compresse retard da 10 mg, 30 mg e 60 mg contengono lattosio. Pertanto se soffre di

intolleranza a determinati zuccheri, le raccomandiamo di consultare il suo medico prima di assumere

questi dosaggi di MST Continus.

I pazienti ipersensibili alle sostanze coloranti azoiche, agli acidi acetilsalicilici nonché agli

antireumatici ed analgesici (inibitori della prostaglandina), devono astenersi dall'uso di MST

Continus 30 mg e 60 mg compresse retard e di MST Continus sospensione retard.

Informi il suo medico o il suo farmacista nel caso in cui soffre di altre malattie, soffre di allergie o

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

Si può assumere MST Continus durante la gravidanza o l'allattamento?

Gravidanza

Un'assunzione prolungata di MST Continus durante la gravidanza può provocare l'insorgenza di

sintomi da astinenza nel neonato. Se MST Continus viene utilizzato durante il parto, può causare un

rallentamento e appiattimento del respiro (depressione respiratoria) nel neonato. MST Continus non

dev'essere somministrato durante la gravidanza. Il suo medico può tuttavia fare delle eccezioni.

Allattamento

Se sta allattando, deve assumere MST Continus solo se il suo medico lo ritiene assolutamente

necessario.

Come usare MST Continus?

Assuma MST Continus sempre esattamente secondo le indicazioni del medico. In caso di dubbio, si

rivolga al suo medico o al suo farmacista. Il dosaggio dipende da quanto sono forti i dolori e dalla

sua sensibilità individuale e viene definito dal suo medico.

MST Continus compresse retard vanno assunte due volte al giorno, all'incirca alla stessa ora, durante

o fra un pasto e l'altro, con una sufficiente quantità di liquido. Le compresse retard non devono essere

divise, masticate o frantumate.

Mescolare il contenuto della bustina della sospensione retard di MST Continus 20 mg, 30 mg o

60 mg con almeno 10 ml (2 cucchiaini) di acqua. Mescolare il contenuto delle bustine da 100 mg con

almeno 20 ml e delle bustine da 200 mg con almeno 30 ml di acqua. Mescolare bene per circa 10

secondi e bere subito. Se nel bicchiere rimane ancora del granulato, riempirlo nuovamente con acqua

e bere il contenuto rimasto.

Il contenuto della bustina si può prendere dopo averlo cosparso su alimenti freddi di consistenza

morbida (p.es. yogurt, gelato, pappe). Abbia cura di assumere subito l'intero contenuto della bustina

(p.es. cosparso su un cucchiaio di alimento di consistenza morbida).

In caso di peso corporeo sotto i 70 kg, età avanzata o debolezza fisica, la dose normale all'inizio della

terapia è di due compresse retard da 10 mg o il contenuto di una bustina da 20 mg ogni 12 ore. Se il

peso supera i 70 kg, la dose è di una compressa retard o il contenuto di una bustina da 30 mg ogni 12

ore. In caso di necessità, il medico aumenterà gradualmente la dose.

Per i bambini il medico stabilirà individualmente lo schema posologico a seconda dell'età e delle

circostanze.

Informi il suo medico se dovessero comparire dolori fra le assunzioni di MST Continus. Il medico le

potrà prescrivere un antidolorifico a rilascio rapido (analgesico di riserva) per la terapia di questi

dolori episodici.

Se ha assunto più MST Continus di quanto prescritto, informi immediatamente il suo medico.

Si attenga scrupolosamente ai tempi di assunzione prescritti dal medico. Per avere una protezione

ottimale contro i dolori o la loro ricomparsa è importante assumere le compresse retard o la

sospensione retard ad intervalli regolari stabiliti dal medico. Non aspetti a prendere il preparato fino

a quando comincia a sentire nuovamente dolore.

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 MST Continus?

Molto spesso l'assunzione di MST Continus può causare stitichezza. Si può combattere questo

disturbo con un'alimentazione ricca di fibre e con l'assunzione di sufficienti quantità di liquidi, ma

spesso sarà necessario che il medico prescriva, in aggiunta, un lassativo.

Soprattutto all'inizio della terapia possono verificarsi molto frequentemente nausea e frequentemente

vomito. Se ha nausea o le viene il vomito, informi il suo medico, che le può prescrivere un

trattamento.

Con l'assunzione di MST Continus possono inoltre manifestarsi i seguenti effetti collaterali:

Frequenti: diminuzione o perdita dell'appetito, confusione, insonnia, vertigini, mal di testa, spasmi

muscolari involontari, grave sonnolenza o stordimento (sedazione), dolori addominali, secchezza

delle fauci, sudorazione, eruzioni cutanee, prurito, debolezza, stanchezza, malessere.

Occasionali: reazioni da ipersensibilità, eccitazione, euforia, allucinazioni, alterazioni dell'umore,

convulsioni, contratture muscolari, parestesie, disturbi della vista, vertigini, palpitazioni,

arrossamento del volto, calo di pressione, svenimento (sincope), accumulo di fluidi nei polmoni

(dopo un repentino aumento del dosaggio), rallentamento e appiattimento della respirazione

(depressione respiratoria), compromissione della funzione respiratoria, affanno, occlusione

intestinale, alterazioni del gusto, disturbi digestivi, aumento dei valori epatici, eruzioni cutanee

pruriginose (orticaria), ritenzione urinaria, ritenzione idrica (edemi).

Possono inoltre verificarsi reazioni allergiche generali acute, disturbi del pensiero, disforia,

farmacodipendenza, eccessiva sensibilità al dolore (iperalgesia), restringimento delle pupille,

rallentamento della frequenza cardiaca, diminuzione dello stimolo della tosse, alterazioni dell'olfatto,

dolori alla cistifellea (coliche biliari), assenza di mestruazioni (amenorrea), disturbi erettili, riduzione

della libido, assuefazione in caso di utilizzo prolungato o sintomi da astinenza.

MST Continus compresse retard da 30 mg e 60 mg e MST Continus sospensione retard possono

provocare reazioni di ipersensibilità della pelle e del sistema respiratorio, in particolare nei pazienti

affetti da asma, orticaria, ipersensibilità agli acidi acetilsalicilici e ad altri antireumatici o analgesici.

Tenga conto che, nonostante l'assenza di mestruazioni, è possibile che insorga una gravidanza e

quindi, anche in assenza di mestruazioni, è necessario utilizzare un contraccettivo efficace durante la

terapia con MST Continus.

In caso di presunto sovradosaggio informare immediatamente il medico che adotterà le contromisure

adeguate. Segni di sovradosaggio sono: restringimento delle pupille, estremo rallentamento della

respirazione, pressione bassa, stato simile alla narcosi.

La paralisi respiratoria è il pericolo più grave correlato al sovradosaggio.

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

Di che altro occorre tener conto?

Conservare a temperatura ambiente (15–25 °C) e in luogo inaccessibile ai bambini.

A cura ultimata portare il medicamento residuo presso un luogo di raccolta (studio medico, farmacia)

per il corretto smaltimento.

Il medicamento non dev'essere utilizzato oltre la data indicata con «EXP» sul contenitore.

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

darle ulteriori informazioni.
