Attention Deficit Disorder with Hyperactivity
ProCentra® (dextroamphetamine sulfate) CII is indicated as an integral part of a total treatment program that typically includes other remedial measures (psychological, educational, social) for a stabilizing effect in pediatric patients (ages 3 years to 16 years) with a behavioral syndrome characterized by the following group of developmentally inappropriate symptoms:
- Moderate to severe distractibility
- Short attention span
- Emotional lability
The diagnosis of this syndrome should not be made with finality when these symptoms are only of comparatively recent origin. Nonlocalizing (soft) neurological signs, learning disability, and abnormal EEG may or may not be present, and a diagnosis of central nervous system dysfunction may or may not be warranted.
ProCentra® is contraindicated in patients
- With advanced arteriosclerosis, symptomatic cardiovascular disease, moderate to
hyperthyroidism, known hypersensitivity or idiosyncrasy to the sympathomimetic amines, glaucoma, agitated states,
and patients with a history of drug abuse.
- During, or within 14 days following the administration of monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), as hypertensive crisis may result.

Important Safety information for Hycet® (hydrocodone bitartrate and acetaminophen) CIII.
Hycet® (hydrocodone bitartrate and acetaminophen) CIII is indicated for the relief of moderate to moderately severe pain in patients over the age of 2 years.
CONTRAINDICATIONS: Hycet should not be administered to patients who have previously exhibited hypersensitivity to hydrocodone; acetaminophen; or any other component of this product.
Hepatotoxicity: Acetaminophen has been associated with cases of acute liver failure; at times resulting in liver transplant and death. Most cases of liver injury are associated with doses exceeding 4000 mg of acetaminophen per day; and often involve more than one acetaminophen-containing product. The risk of acute liver failure is higher in individuals with underlying liver disease; and with individuals who consume alcohol while taking acetaminophen. Instruct patients to look for acetaminophen on package labels and not to use more than one product containing acetaminophen. Instruct patients to seek immediate medical attention if they ingest more than 4000 mg per day; even if they feel well.
Hypersensitivity/Anaphylaxis: There have been post-marketing reports of hypersensitivity reactions and anaphylaxis associated with acetaminophen. Clinical signs include swelling of face; mouth; throat; respiratory distress; urticaria; rash; pruritus; and vomiting. There have been infrequent reports of life-threatening anaphylaxis requiring medical attention. Instruct patients to discontinue Hycet and seek immediate medical attention if they experience these symptoms.
Respiratory Depression: Hydrocodone; in high doses and in certain patients; may cause dose-related respiratory depression or irregular breathing. Young children may have increased sensitivity to the respiratory depressant effects. If use of Hycet is contemplated in such patients it should be administered cautiously and with monitoring.
Head Injury and Increased Intracranial Pressure:
The respiratory depressant effects of narcotics and their capacity to elevate cerebrospinal fluid pressure may be markedly exaggerated in the presence of head injury; intracranial lesions; or elevated intracranial pressure. Narcotics may also produce adverse effects that obscure the clinical course of patients with head injuries.
Acute Abdominal Conditions: Narcotics may also obscure the diagnosis or clinical course of patients with acute abdominal conditions.
Misuse; Abuse; and Diversion of Opioids: Hycet contains hydrocodone; an opioid agonist; and is a Schedule III controlled substance. Opioid agonists can produce drug dependence; have the potential for being abused; are sought by abusers and those with addiction disorders; and are subject to diversion. Hycet can be abused in a manner similar to other opioid agonists. This should be considered when prescribing or dispensing Hycet in situations where there is a concern about misuse; abuse; or diversion.
Special caution should be used when prescribing hydrocodone to elderly or debilitated patients; as well as individuals with impaired hepatic or renal function; hypothyroidism; Addison’s disease; prostatic hypertrophy; or urethral stricture.
Like all narcotics; hydrocodone suppresses the cough reflex. Caution should be exercised when prescribing Hycet postoperatively; or to patients with pulmonary disease.
Hydrocodone may impair mental and/or physical abilities required for the performance of potentially hazardous tasks such as driving or operating machinery. Such tasks should be avoided when taking this product.
Caution should also be exercised with patients who are likely to take acetaminophen-containing medications. Alcohol and other central nervous system (CNS) depressants; such as antihistamines; antipsychotics; and anti-anxiety medications; may produce an additive effect when taken with this product; and should be avoided. Use of MAO inhibitors or tricyclic antidepressants with hydrocodone may increase the effect of either drug.
The most common side effects of Hycet are abdominal pain; dizziness; drowsiness; light-headedness; nausea; shortness of breath; unusual tiredness; and vomiting. Other side effects which may occur include anxiety; mood and other psychological changes; sedation; somnolence; mental clouding; hypoglycemic coma; constipation; gastric distress; heartburn; hepatic necrosis; hepatitis; peptic ulcer; agranulocytosis; hemolytic anemia; iron deficiency anemia; prolonged bleeding time; thrombocytopenia; ureteral or vesical sphincter spasms; muscle flaccidity; acute airway obstruction; apnea; hearing impairment or loss with chronic overdose; cold; clammy skin; diaphoresis; pruritus; rash
