(2) Since TJ-74 contains Glycyrrhiza, careful attention should be paid to the serum potassium level, blood pressure, etc., and if any abnormality is observed, administration should be discontinued.
(3) When TJ-74 is coadministered with other Kampo-preparations (Japanese traditional herbal medicines), etc., attention should be paid to the duplication of the contained crude drugs. Special caution should be exercised when TJ-74 is coadministered with preparations containing Rhubarb. (4) Since there is an individual difference in the cathartic action of Rhubarb, caution should be exercised concerning the dosage and administration.
SHO: The term “SHO” refers to a particular pathological status of a patient evaluated by the Kampo diagnosis, and is patterned according to the patient’s constitution, symptoms, etc. Kampo-preparations (Japanese traditional herbal medicines) should be used after confirmation that it is suitable for the identified “SHO” of the patient.
