ALSUMA may increase your chance of having a heart attack or stroke that can lead to death. This chance is higher in people who have heart disease. Very rarely, certain people, even some without heart disease, have had serious heart-related problems.
Serotonin syndrome is a serious and life-threatening problem that can be caused by ALSUMA, especially if used with antidepressant medicines called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). Make sure to tell your healthcare professional if you take SSRIs, SNRIs, or monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs).
Tell your healthcare professional about all of the medicines (both prescription and nonprescription), vitamins, and herbal supplements that you take.
Keep ALSUMA and all medicines out of the reach of children.
