It's quite silly to tell someone that it's very difficult to get information on foreign drugs. The information is quite readily available. You just need to know the language, and in some cases, English will work just as well on line. To the person asking the question about metamizol sodico, I found with just a quick search, a warning for anyone allergic to aspirin.

I'm sorry, I forgot to add what the ingredient is. It's Dipirona, an antiinflammatory medication used in Europe and Latin America, but which has been removed from the market in the U.S. due to its tendency to lower blood pressure levels.

Sodium Metamizol(e) [aka metamizol(e), metamizol sodica, metamizola natriya, and other combinations of the word metamizole and the local word for sodium]:

yet another ancient run-of-the-mill NSAID. comparable to paracetamol, ibuprofen, and aspirin in effects. similar dosages and side effects.

has a very very very low but existing risk of extremely dangerous complications (about as likely as winning the lottery lottery), for which it has been withdrawn from certain markets such as the USA.

It is NOT: psychoactive, abusable, addictive. A couple pills of it does NOT cause miscarriages, kill babies, etc. It is however not recommended for pregnant women the same way that all other NSAIDs aren't: people tend to use them quite heavily on a daily basis, which provides wholly different effects.

Basically, don't use it if you're pregnant, but don't freak if you did take it once or twice - it's highly unlikely to have caused problems.

Also, don't expect it to do anything that your standard aspirin-ibuprofen-paracetamol/acetaminophen lineup failed to do. It is NOT a prescription drug and NOT a strong painkiller.

Hi, I live in Spain and broke my arm in November 1999, I was given Nolotil (Metamizol) intravenously by paramedics. Later, I took about 6 of the painkillers, Nolotil prescribed. 3 weeks later I collapsed and was admitted to hospital. Thankfully, I work in the hospital and my colleagues spent a lot of time trying to find out what was causing my symptoms ... they thought I had leukemia for example. I spent 29 days in ICU and almost died a couple of times, I am assured ' had I been a tourist, I would have'. The haemotologist who discovered (at 02'00h on my 7th day in UCI) the connection with my fractured arm and the nolotil went on to find the probability of my Celtic Genes adverse reaction to Metamizol.
