4.5 Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction

Only limited data on pharmacological interactions with other medicinal products are available. Clinically relevant interactions with drugs metabolised by the CYP 2D6, CYP 3A4/5, CYP 1A2 or CYP 2E1 pathway have not been observed.

Additive effects with hypnotics and other sedatives cannot be excluded and therefore co- medication is not recommended as a general precaution.

The effect of Kalms Night One-a-Night may be potentiated by alcohol. Excessive concomitant consumption of alcohol should therefore be avoided.

4.6 Pregnancy and lactation

Safety during pregnancy and lactation has not been established. As a precautionary measure, because of lack of data, use during pregnancy and lactation is not recommended.

4.7 Effects on ability to drive and use machines

May impair ability to drive and use machines. If affected, patients should not drive or operate machinery.

4.8 Undesirable effects

Gastrointestinal symptoms (e.g. nausea, abdominal cramps) may occur. The frequency is not known.

If other adverse reactions not mentioned above occur, a doctor or qualified healthcare practitioner should be consulted.

4.9 Overdose

Valerian root at a dose of approximately 20 g (equivalent to 8 to 13 tablets) caused benign symptoms (fatigue, abdominal cramp, chest tightness, lightheadedness, hand tremor and mydriasis), which disappeared within 24 hours. If symptoms arise, treatment should be supportive.

After intake of very high doses of valerian root over several years (daily consumption corresponding to approximately 10 g of the drug) withdrawal symptoms (delirium) have been reported.
