What should I know about Edluar before taking it?

Edluar can have adverse interactions with various medications and may be dangerous to take if you have certain medical conditions. Let your doctor know if you have problems with breathing, metabolism, blood pressure, or problems with your kidneys, liver, or heart. Your doctor should also know if you have ever had mood or mental problems, suicidal thoughts, or alcohol or drug addiction. Edluar can cause dizziness and drowsiness, so avoid driving and using machinery until you are sure that you can do so safely. In rare cases, Edluar can cause people to get out of bed and perform activities while in a sleep-like state, which they do not remember doing afterward. These activities have included driving, eating, making phone calls, and having sex. Edluar can be habit-forming, so take this medicine only as prescribed.
