Himcolin Side Effects
Despite of its being all-natural solution, Himcolin Gel can nevertheless be contraindicated in cases of allergies towards any of its components. Such allergies are most common causes for side effects of Himcolin Gel. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before using Himcolin Gel if you suffer or have ever suffered from any of the following local effects that have been observed with the use of Himcolin Gel:
- Prolonged erection lasting over 4 hours (priapism)
- Symptomatic hypotension (dizziness)
- Hepatic insufficiency and / or renal insufficiency, a dose reduction may be necessary following metabolic alterations
Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking, have recently taken or might take any other medicines. The use of Himcolin Gel has not been studied in conjunction with other treatments for erectile dysfunction. Therefore, if you are taking other drugs for erectile dysfunction, Himcolin Gel should not be used in combination because it may cause side effects including dizziness, fainting and prolonged erections. Himcolin Gel has not been tested in patients with penile implants or treated with papaverine smooth muscle relaxants or with drugs used to induce an erection such as alpha blockers (eg intracavernous phentolamine, timoxamine). The risk of priapism (prolonged abnormal painful erection) increases when used in combination.
Although it has not been studied, it is possible that the effect of Himcolin Gel may diminish when taken in combination with antihypertensive drugs, decongestants and appetite suppressants. If you are taking anticoagulants, do not take Himcolin Gel, the risk of urethral bleeding and hematuria may increase. In combination with medicines for hypertension, the use of Himcolin Gel can increase the symptoms of dizziness and fainting, especially in the elderly.
