Product Warnings

 Do not use this product if you are hypersensitive (allergic) to any of the ingredients. If you are on any medication or suffering from any medical condition, it is advisable to seek medical advice before starting any new medicine, supplement or remedy. Do not exceed recommended dosages unless on the advice of a healthcare practitioner. This unregistered medicine has not been evaluated by the SAHPRA for its quality, safety or intended use.

 Side Effects

 Acetyl-L-carnitine is generally well tolerated. It may cause nausea, vomiting, gastrointestinal upset and agitation.

 Contraindications

 Hyperthyroidism: Avoid using Acetyl-L-carnitine in individuals with hypothyroidism. L-carnitine seems to inhibit the activity of the thyroid hormone in the target tissues. Theoretically, this might occur with Acetyl-L-carnitine.

Seizures: An increase in seizure frequency or severity has been reported in people with a history of seizures who have used L-carnitine orally or intravenously. Theoretically, this might occur with Acetyl-L-carnitine.

 Interactions

 Acenocoumarol: Taking L-carnitine 1 g/day seems to significantly increase the anticoagulant effects of acenocoumarol. This reaction has only been recorded with L-carnitine, but theoretically could occur with acetyl-L-carnitine.

Warfarin: Use cautiously with warfarin as acetyl-L-carnitine may increase the anticoagulant effect of warfarin.

 Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

Safety during pregnancy and whilst breastfeeding has not yet been established.
