4.3 Contraindications
Hypersensitivity to the active substance, other nitrates, or to any of the excipients listed in section 6.1.

Cardiogenic shock, unless a sufficiently high left ventricular end diastolic pressure is ensured either by intra-aortic counterpulsation or positive inotropic drugs.

Acute circulatory collapse (shock, vascular failure).

Constrictive pericarditis, pericardial tamponade, and restrictive cardiomyopathy. 

 

4.8 Undesirable effects

The majority of side effects are pharmacologically mediated and dose dependent.  Headache occurs in approximately 25% of patients at the start of treatment and can be attributed to the vasodilatation effect of the preparation and usually disappears within a week or so. 
Hypotension (with dizziness, reflex tachycardia, fainting and nausea) has been reported but resolves with continued treatment.

The following adverse reactions are classified by system organ class and ranked under heading of frequency using the following convention:
• Very common (1/10)
• Common (1/100 to <1/10)
• Uncommon (1/1,000 to <1/100)
• Rare (1/10,000 to <1/1,000)
• Very rare (<1/10,000)
• Not known (cannot be estimated from the available data)

Nervous system disorders
Very common: headache
Common: dizziness
Rare: fainting
Not known: somnolence

Cardiac disorders
Common: tachycardia
Not known: (aggravation of) angina pectoris, bradyarrhythmia, orthostatic hypotension

Vascular disorders
Common: hypotension
Uncommon: flushing
Not known: circulatory collapse

Gastrointestinal disorders
Common: nausea
Uncommon: vomiting, diarrhoea.

Skin and subcutaneous tissue disorders
Rare: rash, pruritus
Not known: exfoliative dermatitis, allergic skin reactions

Musculoskeletal and connective tissue disorders
Very rare: myalgia

General disorders and administration site conditions
Common: fatigue

The frequency of headache may be reduced by starting treatment at 30 mg for the first 2-4 days and gradually titrating the dose upwards as required (see section 4.2). 

 

4.9 Overdose

Experience of overdosage is limited.

Symptoms
Throbbing headache, excitation, flushing, cold sweat, nausea, vomiting, vertigo, dizziness, syncope, tachycardia, palpitation and hypotension.  Very large doses may give rise to methaemoglobinaemia (very rare).

No case reports of overdose have been received.

Symptoms of intoxication
(Orthostatic) hypotension, reflex tachycardia and headache, fatigue, dizziness, vertigo, flushing, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea may occur. After high doses methaemoglobinaemia, cyanosis, dyspnoea, and tachypnoea may occur based on the nitrite ion.
After very high doses an increase in intracranial pressure with cerebral symptoms may occur. In chronic states of overdose elevated levels of methaemoglobin were measured. The clinical relevance of these findings is controversial.

Section 2. Qualitative and Quantitative Composition

Added:

Contains lactose (0.8 mg per tablet)

 

Section 3. Pharmaceutical Form

Added:

The tablet can be divided into equal halves

 

Section 4.4 Special warnings and precautions for use

Added:

Patients with rare hereditary problems of fructose intolerance, galactose intolerance, galactosemia or glucose-galactose malabsorbtion should not take this medicine

 

Section 4.5 Interactions with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction

Added:

Concurrent administration of drugs with blood pressure lowering properties, e.g. beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, vasodilators (including neuroleptics and tricyclic antidepressants), alprostadil, aldesleukin, antihypertensives, diuretics, angiotensin II receptor antagonists etc and/or alcohol may potentiate the hypotensive effect of Sormon. This may also occur with neuroleptics and tricyclic antidepressants.

Any blood pressure lowering effect of Sormon will be increased if used together with phosphodiesterase type-5 inhibitors, which are used for erectile dysfunction (see special warnings and contraindications). This might lead to life threatening cardiovascular complications. Patients who are on Sormon therapy therefore must not use phosphodiesterase type-5 inhibitors

Reports suggest that concomitant administration of Sormon may increase the blood level of dihydroergotamine and its hypertensive effect.

There is no evidence of interaction with food.
