What should I know about Azor before taking it?

Before you take Azor, you need to be aware of possible complications, side effects, drug interactions and when to contact your doctor for help.

Complications may occur during pregnancy - including harm to an unborn child - as well as during breastfeeding. Before using Azor, be sure to tell your doctor if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or nursing.

Heart problems, liver disease, kidney disease and dehydration may all affect the performance of Azor. Tell your doctor if you become sick while taking Azor, in order to prevent complications -- like dizziness or fainting -- from lack of water.  While taking Azor, be careful when exercising, as extensive sweating may also lead to dehydration.

Azor cannot be used with certain medications, as unintended interactions may occur. Tell your doctor about all medications and supplements you take -- or may use -- during treatment with Azor. Contact your doctor if complications arise while using Azor.
