4.4.      Special warnings and precautions for use:-

ADDED (paragraph):

Patients with rare hereditary problems of fructose intolerance, glucose-galactose malabsorption or sucrose-isomaltase insufficiency should not take this medicine.

Methyl (E218) and propyl (E216) parahydroxybenzoate may cause allergic reactions which could possibly be delayed.

 

 

4.8       Undesirable effects:-

ADDED (paragraph):

Throughout this section adverse reactions are reported. Adverse reactions are adverse events that were considered to be reasonably associated with the use of mebendazole based on the comprehensive assessment of the available adverse event information. A causal relationship with mebendazole cannot be reliably established in individual cases. Further, because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in clinical practice.

 

ADDED (in red):

AMENDED (in blue)

Very common (≥ 1/10); Common (≥ 1/100 and < 1/10); Uncommon (≥ 1/1000 and < 1/100); Rare (≥ 1/10,000 and < 1/1000); Very rare (< 1/10,000); Not known (cannot be estimated from the available data).
