What should I avoid while taking orphenadrine?

Because orphenadrine might make you drowsy, you should avoid driving or any other potentially dangerous tasks while using the medication until you are aware of how it affects you. You should avoid alcohol or other medications that may cause drowsiness because they might increase that side effect of orphenadrine. You will need to avoid other medications shown to interact negatively with orphenadrine. Based on recommendations from their doctor, women may be advised to avoid becoming pregnant or breastfeeding while taking orphenadrine. The injection dosage form contains sodium bisulfite.
