If you have heart disease and abnormal heart rhythms, or are taking certain medications (e.g., Verapamil, atazanavir), discuss with your doctor how Nozinan (Methotrimeprazine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Nozinan (Methotrimeprazine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Blood Clots: Rarely, Nozinan (Methotrimeprazine) may increase the chance of blood clot formation, causing reduction of blood flow to organs or the extremities.

Discuss with your doctor how Nozinan (Methotrimeprazine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Nozinan (Methotrimeprazine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

If you experience symptoms such as sharp pain and swelling in the leg, difficulty breathing, chest pain, blurred vision, or difficulty speaking, contact your doctor immediately.

Avoid driving, operating machinery, or performing other tasks that require mental alertness until you have determined how Nozinan (Methotrimeprazine) affects you.
