    • History of seizures.
  •  In association with sympathomimetics with indirect action: vasoconstrictors intended to decongest the nose, whether they are administered orally or nasally [phenylephrine (alias neosynephrine), pseudoephedrine, ephedrine…] as well as methylphenidate, because of the risk of vasoconstricition and / or hypertensive surges (see section Interactions with other medicinal products and other forms of interactions).
