10. Will other health problems affect this medicine?

Yes other health problems will affectthe choice of medicine. Some medicines should not be taken by people who have a particular health problem. For example if you have a serious liver problem you may not be able to take some medicines that are processed by the liver. Some blood pressure medicines must not be taken by people who have asthma as the medicine could affect breathing.

For this reason it is very important that the doctor knows your full health history and has an overview of your families’ health history.

All med+info leaflets list in section 3 health conditions the doctor must know about when prescribing. Where applicable we also list health conditions that the medicine must not be prescribed for.
