Who should not take Megace ES?

You should not take Megace ES if you are allergic to megestrol acetate or any ingredient in Megace ES suspension. You also should not take this drug if you are pregnant or think that you might become pregnant, because Megace ES may harm fetal development. Megace ES should also be avoided if you are taking dofetilide, because the combination of these two drugs can cause serious heart problems. If you have any irregular vaginal bleeding or any kind of stroke or blood clotting problems in your medical history, avoid this drug. If you have diabetes, an adrenal gland disorder, or cancer, talk to your doctor before taking Megace ES.
