Talk to your doctor if

  • You have seizure disorder as Inosert can trigger seizures.
  • You have liver dysfunction as Inosert gets broken down in the liver, and a weak liver cannot handle it. Do inform your doctor as your dose will be adjusted depending upon your clinical condition.
  • You have diabetes; this medicine can affect your blood sugar levels.
  • You suffer from glaucoma (a condition of the eye in which the pressure inside the eye increases either due to poor drainage or increased production)
