What special precautions should I follow?

Before taking Pemoline:

Tell your doctor if you have liver disease, kidney disease, seizures or epilepsy, Tourette's syndrome, or a history of drug or alcohol abuse. You may not be able to take pemoline or you may require a dosage adjustment or special monitoring during treatment if you have any of the conditions listed above.

Some drugs may interact with pemoline. Talk to your doctor and pharmacist before taking any prescription or over-the-counter medicines.

Pemoline is in the FDA pregnancy category B. This means that it is not expected to harm an unborn baby. However, do not take pemoline without first talking to your doctor if you are pregnant.

Additionally, it is also not known whether pemoline passes into breast milk. Do not take pemoline without first talking to your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.

Pemoline is not recommended for children less than 6 years since its safety and efficacy in this age group have not been established.

Furthermore, clinical experience suggests that in psychotic children, administration of pemoline may exacerbate symptoms of behavior disturbance and thought disorder.
