What should I know about belladonna alkaloid and phenobarbital combination?

People with allergies to belladonna, barbiturates, or the yellow dye tartrazine should not take belladonna alkaloid and phenobarbital combination. Tell your doctor if you are taking seizure medications or digoxin (Lanoxin) before starting treatment. Also tell your doctor of any vitamins you are taking. If you take antacids for your stomach upset, you may need to reduce the amount you take, as antacids can reduce the effectiveness of the medication. People over 65 years of age should talk to their doctor before starting belladonna alkaloid and phenobarbital treatment, as long-term risks may outweigh short-term benefits. Tell your doctor if you have a history of kidney, liver, or heart disease, glaucoma, high blood pressure, prostate problems, intestinal blockage, myasthenia gravis, hiatal hernia, ulcerative colitis, asthma, brain damage or spastic paralysis in children, Down's syndrome, or urinary tract diseases or infections.
