Warnings and precautions            

  • Efficacy and safety of bilastine in children under 2 years of age have not been established and there is little clinical experience in children aged 2 to 5 years; therefore, bilastine should not be used in these age groups.
  • In patients with moderate or severe renal impairment co-administration of bilastine with P-glycoprotein (P-gp) inhibitors, e.g. ketoconazole, erythromycin, cyclosporine, ritonavir or diltiazem, may increase plasmatic levels of bilastine and, therefore, increase the risk of adverse effects of bilastine. Therefore, co-administration of bilastine and P-gp inhibitors should be avoided in patients with moderate or severe renal impairment
