How it works Aspegic

OTHER ANALGESICS AND ANTIPYRETICS , ATC Code: N02BA01 .

Acetylsalicylic acid belongs to the group of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs with antalgic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory properties.

 Its mechanism of action is based on the irreversible inhibition of cyclooxygenase enzymes involved in prostaglandin synthesis.

Acetylsalicylic acid also inhibits platelet aggregation by blocking platelet synthesis of thromboxane A 2 .

Aspegic 500 mg Side Effects

Like all medicines, ASPEGIC 500 mg powder for oral solution in sachet-dose is likely to have side effects, although not everyone is concerned.

You should immediately stop your treatment and tell your doctor if:

  • gastric and intestinal bleeding (see section “Special warnings”). These are all the more frequent as the dosage used is high,
  • cerebral hemorrhages,
  • allergic reactions such as rash, asthma attack, Quincke’s edema (urticaria of the face with respiratory disorder),
  • tinnitus, feeling of lowered hearing, headache, dizziness: these signs usually reflect an overdose of aspirin,
  • Reye’s syndrome (appearance of a disturbance of consciousness or behavior and vomiting) in a child with a viral illness receiving aspirin (“Take special care with ASPEGIC 500 mg powder for oral solution in a sachet”), paragraph “Special warnings”)
  • Increased liver enzymes, liver damage (mainly liver cells).

Tell your doctor if you have abdominal pain, nosebleeds or gums.

Cases of stomach ulcer have been reported.

If any of the side effects gets serious, or if you notice any side effects not listed in this leaflet, please tell your doctor or pharmacist

Keep out of the reach and sight of children.

Aspegic Warnings and Precautions

This medicine contains acetylsalicylic acid. Other medicines contain it. Do not combine them, so as not to exceed the recommended daily dose.

In case of combination with other drugs, to avoid a risk of overdose, check the absence of acetylsalicylic acid in the composition of other drugs.

In patients receiving concomitant treatment with nicorandil and NSAIDs including acetylsalicylic acid, there is an increased risk of serious complications such as gastrointestinal ulceration, perforation and bleeding (see section 4.5).

In the long-term administration of high-dose analgesic drugs, the occurrence of headache should not be treated with higher doses.

Regular use of analgesics, especially the combination of analgesics, can lead to persistent kidney damage with a risk of renal failure.

Reye syndromes, very rare but life-threatening diseases, have been observed in children and adolescents with signs of viral infections (especially chickenpox and influenza-like episodes) and receiving acetylsalicylic acid. As a result, acetylsalicylic acid should only be given in these children and adolescents on medical advice when the other measures have failed. If persistent vomiting, disturbances of consciousness or abnormal behavior occur, treatment with acetylsalicylic acid should be discontinued.

In some severe cases of G6PD deficiency, high doses of acetylsalicylic acid may have caused haemolysis. The administration of acetylsalicylic acid in case of G6PD deficiency must be under strict medical supervision.

In children less than 1 month old, the administration of acetylsalicylic acid is justified only in certain situations under medical prescription.

Monitoring of treatment should be strengthened in the following cases:

  1. · History of peptic ulcer, gastrointestinal bleeding or gastritis,
  2. · Renal or hepatic insufficiency,
  3. · Asthma: the onset of asthma attacks in some individuals may be related to an allergy to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or acetylsalicylic acid. In this case, this medicine is contraindicated,
  4. · Metrorrhagia or menorrhagia (risk of increased importance and duration of menstruation).

Gastrointestinal haemorrhage or ulcers / perforations may occur at any time during treatment without necessarily having any prior symptoms or antecedents. The relative risk increases in the elderly, the subject of low body weight, the patient undergoing anticoagulant or antiplatelet therapy (see section 4.5). In case of gastrointestinal bleeding, discontinue treatment immediately.

Given the platelet anti-aggregating effect of acetylsalicylic acid, appearing at very low doses and persisting for several days, the patient should be warned of the risk of bleeding that may occur in the event of even minor surgery (eg extraction dental).

Acetylsalicylic acid modifies serum uric acid (in analgesic dose acetylsalicylic acid increases uricemia by inhibiting the excretion of uric acid, at doses used in rheumatology, acetylsalicylic acid has an uricosuric effect).

At high doses used in rheumatology (anti-inflammatory doses), it is recommended to monitor the appearance of signs of overdose. In the event of tinnitus, hearing loss and vertigo, the treatment modalities should be re-evaluated.

In children, it is recommended to monitor salicylemia especially during the start of treatment.

Use of this medication is not recommended if breast-feeding  .

It has been proven that drugs that inhibit the activity of cyclooxygenase involved in prostaglandin synthesis can alter female fertility by acting on ovulation. This is reversible at the end of the treatment.

Concomitant use of acetylsalicylic acid  is not recommended with:

· Oral anticoagulants, for analgesic or antipyretic doses (≥ 500mg per dose and / or <3 g per day) of acetylsalicylic acid and in a patient with no history of peptic ulcer (see section 4.5),

· Oral anticoagulants, for antiaggregant doses of acetylsalicylic acid (50 mg to 375 mg daily) and in a patient with a history of peptic ulcer (see section 4.5),

· Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for anti-inflammatory doses (≥ 1 g per dose and / or ≥ 3 g per day), analgesics or antipyretic (≥ 500 mg per dose and / or <3 g per day) of acetylsalicylic acid,

· Clopidogrel (apart from validated indications for this combination in acute coronary syndrome),

· Glucocorticoids (except hydrocortisone as replacement therapy) for anti-inflammatory doses (≥ 1 g per dose and / or ≥ 3 g daily) of acetylsalicylic acid ),

· Heparins of low molecular weight (and related) and unfractionated heparin in curative and / or elderly doses and for anti-inflammatory doses (≥ 1g per dose and / or ≥3 g per day) or analgesic or antipyretic (≥ 500mg by intake and / or <3 g per day) of acetylsalicylic acid,

· Pemetrexed in patients with low to moderate renal function (creatinine clearance between 45 ml / min and 80 ml / min),

· Ticlopidine,

· Uricosurics.

· Lanagrelide.

This medicine contains lactose. Its use is not recommended in patients with galactose intolerance, Lapp lactase deficiency or glucose or galactose malabsorption syndrome (rare hereditary diseases).

500 mg sachets are not suitable for children under 30 kg for indication of mild to moderate pain and / or febrile conditions and for children under 20 kg for rheumatic diseases indication . There are better dosages for these children.

Taking alcohol can increase the risk of gastrointestinal damage. Caution is therefore recommended in case of concomitant administration .

Aspegic and PREGNANCY / BREAST FEEDING / FERTILITY

Pregnancy :

Low doses, less than or equal to 100 mg per day:

  • Clinical studies show that doses up to 100 mg / day seem to be safe for extremely limited obstetric use requiring specialized surveillance.

Doses between 100 and 500 mg per day:

  • Clinical experience with doses of 100 mg to 500 mg daily is inadequate. As a result, the following recommendations for doses greater than 500 mg daily apply to these doses.

Doses greater than or equal to 500 mg daily:

  • Inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis may affect the course of pregnancy and / or the development of the embryo or fetus.
Malformative aspect: 1st  quarter:
Data from epidemiological studies suggest an increased risk of miscarriage, heart defects and gastroschisis following treatment with an inhibitor of prostaglandin synthesis in early pregnancy. The absolute risk of cardiovascular malformation increased from less than 1% to approximately 1.5%. The risk appears to increase depending on the dose and duration of treatment. In animals, administration of an inhibitor of prostaglandin synthesis has been shown to cause increased pre- and post-implant loss and increased embryo-fetal lethality. In addition, a higher incidence of some malformations, including cardiovascular, has been reported in animals that received a prostaglandin synthesis inhibitor during the
Fetotoxic and neonatal Appearance: 2 e  and 3 e  quarters:
During the 2 e  and 3 e  trimesters of pregnancy, all inhibitors of prostaglandin synthesis may expose the fetus to:

  • cardiopulmonary toxicity (premature closure of the ductus arteriosus and pulmonary arterial hypertension). The constriction of the arterial duct can occur from 5 months and can lead to fetal or neonatal right heart failure or even fetal death in utero . This risk is even more important that the catch is close to the term (less reversibility). This effect exists even for a punctual catch.
  • renal functional impairment  :
    • in utero can be observed as early as 12 weeks of amenorrhea (initiation of fetal diuresis): oligoamnios (most often reversible at the end of treatment), even anamnios especially during prolonged exposure.
    • at birth, renal insufficiency (reversible or not) may persist especially in case of late and prolonged exposure (with a risk of delayed severe hyperkalemia).
At the end of pregnancy, the mother and the newborn can present:
  • an increase in bleeding time due to antiplatelet action that may occur even after administration of very low doses of drug;
  • inhibition of uterine contractions resulting in delayed term or prolonged delivery.
As a consequence for doses higher than 100 mg / day:
  • Unless absolutely necessary, acetylsalicylic acid should not be prescribed during the first 24 weeks of amenorrhea (5 months pregnant). If acetylsalicylic acid is administered to a woman who wants to become pregnant or is less than six months pregnant, the dose should be as low as possible and the duration of treatment as short as possible. Prolonged intake is strongly discouraged.
  • Beyond 24 weeks of amenorrhea (5 months of pregnancy completed): any intake of acetylsalicylic acid, even punctual, is contraindicated. An inadvertent uptake beyond 24 weeks of amenorrhea justifies cardiac and renal, fetal and / or neonatal monitoring according to the exposure term. The duration of this monitoring will be adapted to the elimination half-life of the molecule.


Breastfeeding:

  • Since acetylsalicylic acid is passed into breast milk, this medicine is not recommended during breastfeeding.

What happens if I overdose from Aspegic ?

  1. During treatment, tinnitus, hearing loss, headache and dizziness may occur and usually result in overdose of aspirin.
  2. YOU MUST INTERRUPT YOUR TREATMENT OR TREATMENT OF YOUR CHILD AND PREVENT A DOCTOR.
  3. In case of accidental intoxication (especially frequent in young children), CONSULT IMMEDIATELY A DOCTOR.
