Drug Interactions:

If Mogam is combined with centrally acting drugs such as: Neuroleptics, tranquilizers, anti-depressants, hypnotics, analgesics, and anaesthetics, the sedative effects are likely to be intensified. When Mogam is used in conjunction with anti-epileptic drugs, side effects and toxicity may be more evident particularly with hydantoin or barbiturates. Inhibitors of hepatic enzymes, e.g. cimetidine, reduce the clearance of benzodiazepines and may potentiate their action. The inducers of hepatic enzymes, e.g. rifampicin, may increase the clearance of Mogam.

Precautions:

  1. Patients should be warned of the possible hazard, and advised not to drive or operate machinery.
  2. Patients should avoid drinking alcohol during treatment.
  3. Benzodiazepines should not be used alone to treat depression, as suicide may be precipitated in such patients.
