What should I know about pentazocine-naloxone before taking it?

Before you take pentazocine-naloxone, tell your doctor if you are allergic to pentazocine, naloxone, sulfites or any other drugs. You should also talk to your doctor if you are taking other pain relievers or any drug that can cause drowsiness, such as antidepressants, allergy or cold or cough medicine, sleeping pills, sedatives, tranquilizers or muscle relaxers. Alcohol intensifies drowsiness, so you should avoid drinking alcohol while taking pentazocine-naloxone.
 
Before using this drug, tell your doctor if you have asthma, sleeping disorders, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), liver or kidney disease, mental illness, history of heart disease, epilepsy or other seizure disorders, brain tumor, head injury, low blood pressure, gallbladder disease, lung disease, thyroid disorder, an enlarged prostate, urinary problems or have recently taken other narcotic drugs. Pentazocine-naloxone can be habit forming. If you have a history of alcohol or drug addiction, talk to your doctor before taking this drug.
