Hypersensitivity to the active substance ispaghula husk, or to any of the excipients listed on section 6.1 (see 4.4 Special warnings and precautions for use)

Section 4.4:
Included the following text: Warning on hypersensitivity reactions In individuals with continued occupational contact to powder of Plantago ovata seeds (i.e. healthcare workers, caregivers) allergic sensitization may occur due to inhalation, this is more frequent in atopic individuals. This sensitization usually leads to hypersensitivity reactions which could be serious (see 4.8 Undesirable effects).It is recommended to assess clinically the possible sensitization of individuals at risk and, if justified, to perform specific diagnostic tests.In case of proven sensitization leading to hypersensitivity reactions, exposure to the product should be stopped immediately and avoided in the future (see 4.3 Contraindications).”

 

Section 4.8
Included the following text:  Ispaghula/psyllium husk contains potent allergens. The exposure to these allergens is possible through oral administration, contact with the skin and, in the case of powder formulations, also by inhalation.

As a consequence to this allergic potential, individuals exposed to the product can develop hypersensitivity reactions such as rhinitis, conjunctivitis, bronchospasm and in some cases, anaphylaxia. Cutaneous symptoms as exanthema and/or pruritus have also been reported. Special attention should be given to individuals manipulating the powder formulations routinely (see 4.4 Special warnings and precautions for use).
