WHAT 100 MG FEVARIN AND WHAT IT IS USED
Pharmacotherapeutic group: antidepressants, selective inhibitor of serotonin reuptake. Fevarin is a medicine for the treatment of periods of depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
How does fevarin 50 mg / 100 mg Fevarin?
Fevarin acts selectively on serotonin - a brain chemical that regulates mood and activity. It belongs to the group of so-called SSRI (SSRI) drugs that selectively retain serotonin reuptake in brain neurons. With the increase in the concentration of serotonin, symptoms of depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder disappear.
The product can be administered with food.
Fevarin pharmacokinetics were similar in healthy adults, the elderly and patients with renal insufficiency. Fevarin metabolism is impaired in patients with liver disease.
Steady-state plasma concentrations of fevarin are twice as high in children (6-11 years) compared to adolescents (12-17 years). Plasma concentrations in adolescents are similar to those in adults.
BEFORE YOU TAKE FEVARIN 50 MG / 100 MG FEVARIN
Do not take Fevarin 50 mg / 100 mg Fevarin if:
you are allergic (hypersensitive) to fluvoxamine maleate or any of the ingredients of Fevarin!

Fevarin treatment can be initiated:
two weeks after discontinuation of an irreversible MAOI or the next day after discontinuation of a reversible MAOI (eg moclobemide).
We need to go at least one week between discontinuation of Fevarin and initiation of therapy with an MAOI.
Special precautions for use Fevarin 50 mg / 100 mg fevarin
Depression is associated with an increased risk of suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts and suicide. The risk exists to achieve significant remission occurs. Clinical experience has shown that the risk of suicidal behavior is highest early in the disease and may increase again in the early stages of recovery. Therefore patients should be monitored closely, especially at the beginning of antidepressant therapy or at any time during dose adjustments to the establishment of improvement.
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) may also be associated with an increased risk of suicide. Therefore, these patients should follow the same precautions.
Patients with a history of suicide-related events and those demonstrating a significant degree of suicidal ideation prior to commencement of treatment, may be at a higher risk of suicidal thoughts or suicide attempts. Patients (and caregivers) should be informed about the need to monitor in order to establish the occurrence of suicidal behavior and seek immediate medical advice in the event of such symptoms.
Fevarin should not be used to treat children and adolescents under the age of 18 years except for patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Suicide-related behaviors (suicide attempt and suicidal thoughts), and hostility (predominantly aggression, resistance and anger) were more frequently observed in clinical trials with children and adolescents treated with antidepressants compared to those treated with placebo. When deciding on treatment based on clinical need, the patient should be carefully monitored for the appearance of suicidal symptoms.
In addition, long-term safety data in children and adolescents concerning growth, maturation and development of cognitive behavior.
Severe liver or kidney failure patients should commence treatment with a low dose and be carefully monitored.
Fevarin therapy has rarely been associated with an increase in liver enzymes, generally accompanied by clinical symptoms. Treatment in such cases should be stopped. Glycaemic control may be impaired, especially in the early phases of treatment. You may need to adjust the dose of antidiabetic drugs.
Although Fevarin not demonstrated proconvulsive properties in animal studies, it is recommended that the drug be used with caution in patients with a history of convulsive disorders.
Fevarin should be avoided in patients with unstable epilepsy and patients with controlled epilepsy should be carefully monitored. Fevarin treatment should be discontinued at the onset or increased frequency of seizures.
Rare cases of developing serotonin syndrome or events similar to neuroleptic malignant syndrome in relation to treatment Fevarin, especially when administered in combination with other serotonergic and / or neuroleptic drugs. As these syndromes may result in potentially life-threatening conditions, treatment with fevarin should be discontinued if such events (characterized by clusters of symptoms such as hyperthermia, rigidity, myoclonus, autonomic instability and possible rapid fluctuations of vital signs, mental status changes including confusion, irritability, extreme agitation progressing to delirium and coma), which should be supportive symptomatic treatment. As with other selective inhibitors of serotonin reuptake (SSRIs), following discontinuation of treatment with Fevarin rarely been observed hyponatremia. Some cases were possibly due to the syndrome of inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone. Most reports were associated with older patients.
There is literary evidence of cutaneous bleeding abnormalities such as ecchymoses and redness due to capillary bleeding skin and internal gastrointestinal bleeding with SSRIs. It is recommended that patients taking SSRIs should be monitored closely, especially elderly and patients concomitantly used drugs known to affect platelet function [as atypical antipsychotics and phenothiazines, most tricyclic antidepressants (TA), aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)] or medications that increase the risk of bleeding, and patients with a history of bleeding and those with predisposing conditions (eg thrombocytopenia).
In combination with Fevarin plasma concentrations of terfenadine, astemizole, or cisapride may increase, leading to an increased risk of QT interval prolongation of Torsade de Pointes.
Therefore Fevarin should not be administered concomitantly with these drugs.
Data in elderly patients showed no clinically relevant differences in normal daily doses compared to younger subjects. However, adjusting the dose is increased in elderly patients should be done more slowly and doses should always be undertaken with caution fevarin may cause slight delays in heart rate (2-6 beats per minute).
Due to lack of clinical experience, the use of Fevarin for the treatment of depression in children can not be recommended.
Taking other medicines
Fevarin should not be used in combination with an MAOI (see section 2).
Reported to increase in previously stable plasma levels of these tricyclic antidepressants (eg clomipramine, imipramine, amitriptyline) and neuroleptics (eg, clozapine, olanzapine), which are metabolized primarily by the cytochrome P450 1A2 coadministration of Fevarin. When initiating treatment with Fevarin should be given to reducing the dose of these products.
Patients receiving both drugs as Fevarin and tacrine, theophylline, methadone, mexiletine, should be carefully monitored and, if necessary, dose adjustment of these drugs.
For use with Fevarin, warfarin plasma concentrations increased significantly and prothrombin time increases.
Isolated cases of cardiac toxicity when combining fevarin with thioridazine.
As plasma concentrations of propranolol are increased in combination with Fevarin may be necessary to reduce the dose of propranolol.
Likely plasma caffeine levels to be increased when co-administered fevarin. Therefore, patients who consume large amounts of caffeine-containing beverages should limit their intake with concomitant fevarin because there are side effects from caffeine (such as tremor, palpitations, nausea, anxiety, insomnia).
Since plasma ropinirol may be increased in combination with Fevarin, thus increasing the risk of overdose may need monitoring and dose reduction ropinirol during treatment Fevarin and after treatment.
Patients receiving concomitant fevarin and phenytoin should be carefully monitored and, if necessary, dose adjustment of these drugs.
Terfenadine, astemizole, cisapride: See also Special precautions for use.
Patients receiving concomitant fevarin and carbamazepine, ciclosporin, should be carefully monitored and, if necessary, dose adjustment of these
It is likely that the plasma levels of oxidatively metabolised benzodiazepines (eg triazolam, midazolam, alprazolam, and diazepam) be increased by concomitant Fevarin.
The dosage of these benzodiazepines should be reduced by concomitant administration of Fevarin.
Fevarin not affect plasma concentrations of digoxin.
Fevarin not affect plasma concentrations of atenolol.
Fevarin serotonergic effects may be enhanced when used in combination with other serotonergic agents (including triptans, (tramadol, SSRIs and St. John's Wort preparations (see Special Precautions for Use).
Fevarin was used in combination with lithium for the treatment of severely ill and drug-resistant patients. However, lithium (and possibly tryptophan) enhances serotonergic effect Fevarin. The combination should be used with caution in patients with severe drug-resistant depression. Upon receiving oral anticoagulants and Fevarin patients, the risk of bleeding may be increased and therefore these patients should be monitored carefully.
As with other psychotropic medications, patients should be advised to avoid alcohol while taking Fevarin.
Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription.

Data from a limited number of exposed pregnancies indicate no drug adverse effects on pregnancy Fevarin. There are currently no other drug-related epidemiological data.
Reproductive studies in animals at high doses revealed no evidence of impaired fertility, fertility or teratogenic effects in the offspring. At doses of fluvoxamine, which significantly (about 4 times) exceed the maximum recommended human dose, they found impaired fertility, increased incidence of embryo-fetal death, decreased fetal weight and increased incidences of fetal eye abnormalities (stumbling retina). The potential risk for humans is unknown. Care must be taken when prescribing medication to pregnant women.
Isolated cases of symptoms of dependence in the newborn have been described after the use of Fevarin in late pregnancy. Some newborns experience feeding difficulties and / or breathing difficulties, seizures, unstable temperature, hypoglycemia, tremor, abnormal muscle tone, shivering and crying after continuous exposure to SSRIs during the third trimester of pregnancy, so you may need prolonged hospitalization.
Fevarin is excreted in small amounts in breast milk. Therefore, the drug should not be used by women who are breastfeeding.
Driving and operating machinery
Fevarin to 150 mg no or negligible influence on the ability to drive and use machines. The drug showed no effect on psychomotor skills related to driving and operating machinery in healthy volunteers. But it was reported sleepiness during treatment fevarin. Therefore, caution is advised in the establishment of individual response to the drug.
