What should I know about Danazol before taking it?

Before taking danazol, you should be aware that there may be some serious risks associated with taking this medication, especially if you have certain medical conditions. Women who are pregnant should not take danazol, and if you're on danazol, you should use a non-hormonal form of birth control (condoms, diaphragms, etc.) to avoid becoming pregnant. This is because danazol may harm the developing baby and lead to birth defects. There are also some medical conditions that may occur as a result of taking danazol, including stroke and abnormally-increased pressure within your skull. Talk to your doctor about any underlying medical conditions or medications you're taking before starting danazol to make sure you're not at an increased risk for these and other serious side effects.
