Important Safety Information for HETLIOZ™
HETLIOZ™ (HeT-lee-ōz) is a prescription medication used to treat Non-24-Hour Sleep-Wake Disorder (Non-24).
HETLIOZ™ may cause drowsiness. After taking HETLIOZ™, limit your activity to preparing for bed. HETLIOZ™ can potentially impair your ability to perform activities that require complete mental alertness.
The most common side effects associated with HETLIOZ™ include headache, elevated liver enzymes (ALT), nightmares or abnormal dreams, and upper respiratory or urinary tract infection. These side effects may occur more frequently in patients 65 years of age or older.
Tell your healthcare provider about all of the medicines you take, including prescription and nonprescription drugs, vitamins, and herbal or dietary supplements, including those that contain or are known to affect melatonin levels.
Tell your healthcare provider about all of your health conditions, including if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding. HETLIOZ™ has not been studied in pregnant women. HETLIOZ™ should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risks.
HETLIOZ™ should not be used in children or in people with severe liver problems.
You are encouraged to report side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, call 1-800-FDA-1088, or report by fax at 1-800-FDA-0178.
