Who should not take Niravam?

If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant, you should not take Niravam. This medication could cause a birth defect. Do not take Niravam if you are allergic to any of its ingredients.

Before taking Niravam, let your doctor know if you have Parkinson's disease, kidney or liver disease, breathing problems, myasthenia gravis, porphyria, glaucoma, a history of suicidal thoughts, depression, or drug or alcohol abuse. These conditions may affect your use of Niravam. Also tell your doctor about all medications that you are taking before using Niravam, because Niravam can interact with other medications. Niravam should never be taken with ketoconazole, itraconazole, or some medications that treat HIV/AIDS.
