Pharmacology

Ketotifen has anti-allergic characteristics and has been utilized in the preventative treatment of asthma in a similar way to sodium cromoglycate. It has antihistamine characteristics as well. Ketotifen has strong anti-anaphylactic effects and is useful for avoiding asthma attacks. Ketotifen has a long-lasting inhibitory effect on histamine reactions, which is distinct from its anti-anaphylactic effects. Ketotifen is as effective orally as a selective mast cell stabilizer delivered by inhalation in asthmatic individuals, according to research.

Dosage & Administration of Tofen 100 ml

Adults: 1 mg twice daily with food. If necessary the dose may be increased to 2 mg twice daily in severe cases.

For children above 3 years: 1 mg twice daily with food. Patients known to be easily sedated should begin treatment with 0.5 to 1 mg at night for the first few days or as directed by the physician.

Use in elderly: Same as adult dose or as advised by the physician.

Interaction of Tofen 100 ml

Tofen 100 ml may potentiate the effects of sedatives, hypnotics, antihistamines, and alcohol. A reversible fall in the platelet count has been observed in a few patients receiving Tifen concomitantly with oral antidiabetic agents and it has been suggested that this combination should therefore be avoided.

Contraindications

Side Effects of Tofen 100 ml

Drowsiness and in isolated cases, dry mouth and slight dizziness may occur at the beginning of treatment but usually disappear spontaneously after a few days.

Pregnancy & Lactation

Tofen 100 ml is not indicated during pregnancy or lactation, despite the lack of evidence of teratogenic effects.

Precautions & Warnings

To avoid an asthma exacerbation, it is critical to continue the previous medication for at least two weeks after commencing Ketotifen. Because of the possibility of adrenocortical insufficiency in steroid-dependent patients, this is especially true for systemic corticosteroids and ACTH.
