Precautions

Drug information provided by: Micromedex

Check with your doctor:

  • If your condition does not improve after you have been using this medicine regularly for 7 days, or if it becomes worse.
  • If any bleeding from the rectum occurs.
  • If you notice any rash, redness, or irritation that was not present before you started using this medicine.

False test results may occur if benzocaine or tetracaine is present in your body when a certain laboratory test is done. This test uses a medicine called bentiromide (e.g., Chymex) to show how well your pancreas is working. You should not use any products containing benzocaine or tetracaine for about 72 hours (3 days) before this test is done.
