Precautions and Warnings of Qudict Tablet

Pregnancy

Q:
Can I take Qudict tablets during pregnancy?
A:
Qudict may require dose readjustments in case of pregnancy. Your doctor or gynaecologist may prescribe Qudict tablets after calculating the benefit/risk ratio and examining for signs and symptoms of opioid dependence and withdrawal. The FDA has issued a black box warning for Qudict. Always consult a doctor or gynaecologist before starting Qudict. Never self prescribe or self-medicate.

Breast Feeding

Q:
Can I take Qudict tablets while breastfeeding?
A:
Buprenorphine in Qudict is known to be secreted in milk. Since it is an opioid, it may cause opioid withdrawal syndrome in infants. Some quantities of naloxone are also secreted in the milk. Consult a doctor or a gynaecologist before starting Qudict during nursing. Never self prescribe or self-medicate.

Driving

Q:
Can I drive if I have taken a Qudict tablet?
A:
Qudict tablets contain buprenorphine, an opioid that may cause changes in mental alertness, sedation, dizziness, drowsiness, fainting, confusion, and blurring of vision. Driving is not advised while taking Qudict tablets.

Alcohol

Q:
Can I consume alcohol with Qudict tablets?
A:
Buprenorphine and naloxone interact with alcohol and may cause agitation, respiratory depression, sedation, dizziness, drowsiness, seizures, depression, motor incoordination, fainting, and blurring of vision. Therefore, it is advised to stay away from alcohol entirely while taking Qudict tablets.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

^

Q: Can I take Qudict tablets if I have a kidney issue?

A: The liver primarily metabolises buprenorphine. The liver also metabolises naloxone, but the kidney excretes the metabolites. Naloxone levels are generally not alarming in the case of mild to moderate kidney disease. The dose can be readjusted in case of severe renal disease. Consult your doctor before you start taking this medicine.

Q: Can I take Qudict tablets if I have liver problems?

A: Buprenorphine and naloxone are both metabolised by the liver. So, any liver damage may alter the levels of these two drugs inside the body. Therefore, the dose may need to be adjusted in mild to moderate liver disease. However, in severe liver damage and liver failure, Qudict tablet is contraindicated. Always consult a doctor in case of a liver disorder before taking this medicine.

Q: Can I take Qudict tablets for pain relief?

A: Qudict is mainly used to control withdrawal symptoms due to chronic opioid dependence and overdose. Buprenorphine is a mild analgesic, but its clinical effectiveness is more in managing withdrawal symptoms. Use this medicine for managing your withdrawal symptoms. Consult your physician if you want medicine for relieving your pain.
