Ketotifen is not effective in preventing or treating acute asthma attacks. Convulsions have been reported very rarely during therapy.
Thrombocytopenia may occur in patients taking Ketotifen at the same time as oral antidiabetic drugs. The simultaneous administration of these drugs should therefore be avoided.

To be taken into account in pregnant or breast-feeding women, children and high-risk groups such as patients with liver disease, or epilepsy. It may cause allergic reactions (possibly delayed). In diabetic patients, the carbohydrate content of the syrup (5 ml = 3 g carbohydrate) should be taken into consideration.
Potentially hazards interactions: A reversible fall in platelet counts has been reported in a few patients receiving Ketotifen concomitantly with oral antidiabetic agents. The mechanism of this reaction is unknown and therefore Ketotifen should not be used when oral antidiabetics are being administered.
