Precautions

It is very important that your doctor check your progress closely while receiving the medicine to make sure that this medicine is working properly and to check for unwanted effects.

This medicine may cause serious allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, which can be life-threatening and require immediate medical attention. Tell your doctor right away if you have a rash, itching, hoarseness, trouble breathing or swallowing, or any swelling of your hands, face, or mouth after receiving this medicine.

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant before receiving this medicine. Sincalide may cause pre-term labor and early pregnancy loss in pregnant women. Talk to your doctor if you have concerns about this.

This medicine stimulates the gallbladder to contract. If you have small gallstones, they may get stuck in the cystic duct or in the common bile duct and cause blockage. Talk to your doctor if you have concerns about this.

Do not take other medicines unless they have been discussed with your doctor. This includes prescription or nonprescription (over-the-counter [OTC]) medicines and herbal or vitamin supplements.
