SPECIAL WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS FOR USE The administration of rupatadine with grapefruit juice is not recommended.
Cardiac safety of rupatadine was assessed in a thorough QT/QTc study. Rupatadine up to 10 times the therapeutic dose did not produce any effect on the ECG and hence raises no cardiac safety concerns. However, rupatadine should be used with caution in patients with known prolongation of the QT interval, patients with uncorrected hypokalemia, patients with ongoing proarrhythmic conditions, such as clinically significant bradycardia and acute myocardial ischemia.
Rupafin® 10 mg tablet should be used with caution in elderly patients (65 years and older). Although no overall differences in effectiveness or safety were observed in clinical trials, higher sensitivity of some older individuals cannot be excluded due to the low number of elderly patients enrolled.
Rupatadine is not recommended for use in children below 12 years of age due to a lack of data on safety and efficacy.
As there is no clinical experience in patients with impaired kidney or liver functions, the use of rupatadine (Rupafin®) 10 mg tablet is at present not recommended in these patients.
Due to the presence of lactose monohydrate in rupatadine (Rupafin®) 10 mg tablet, patients with rare hereditary problems of galactose intolerance, the Lapp lactase deficiency or glucose-galactose malabsorption should not take this medicine.
