Cette fiche de renseignements explique ce que fait le lorazépam, comment l'administrer et quels sont les effets indésirables ou les problèmes que votre enfant pourrait avoir quand il prend ce médicament. </p><h2>Avant de donner ce médicament à votre enfant</h2> <p>Votre enfant doit éviter de prendre du lorazépam s'il présente un ou plusieurs des points suivants : </p> <ul><li>une allergie au lorazépam ou à tout autre ingrédient compris dans le lorazépam</li> <li>une allergie à la benzodiazépine comme le diazépam ou l'alprazolam</li> <li>une maladie musculaire appelée myasthénie grave</li> <li>une maladie appelée glaucome à angle fermé</li></ul> <h3>Parlez au médecin ou au pharmacien si votre enfant est atteint d'une des maladies suivantes : </h3> <ul><li>un grave problème de respiration (comme l'apnée du sommeil)</li> <li>une grave maladie des reins ou du foie</li></ul><h2>Comment administrer les médicaments à votre enfant?</h2> <ul><li>Donnez ce médicament à votre enfant exactement comme votre médecin ou le pharmacien vous l'a indiqué.</li> <li>N'augmentez ni ne diminuez la quantité de médicament sans en parler d'abord au médecin de votre enfant.</li> <li>Si votre enfant n'a besoin de lorazépam qu'à l'occasion, demandez à votre médecin ou au pharmacien le moment où vous devriez lui en administrer. </li> <li>S'il en a besoin régulièrement, donnez-lui à la même heure, chaque jour.</li> <li>Un membre du personnel infirmier peut administrer le lorazépam à votre enfant à l'hôpital par intraveineuse.</li> <li>Donnez le lorazépam avec ou sans aliments. Vous pouvez donner ce médicament avec des aliments ou du lait si votre enfant a de la difficulté à le digérer.</li> <li>S'il prend du lorazépam pour prévenir les crises d'épilepsie, attendez cinq minutes après avoir donné le médicament pour que cesse la crise. Si la crise se poursuit après cinq minutes, appelez le 9-1-1 ou amenez votre enfant au service d'urgence le plus près (à moins d'avis contraire de votre médecin).</li></ul><h2>Que faire si vous oubliez une dose?</h2> <p>Le lorazépam est habituellement consommé au besoin, mais si votre enfant en prend régulièrement et qu'il oublie une dose : </p> <ul><li>Donnez la dose oubliée dès que vous vous en rappelez.</li> <li>S'il est presque temps pour la prochaine dose, omettez la dose oubliée. Donnez la prochaine dose à l'heure prévue.</li> <li>Ne donnez pas deux doses à votre enfant pour arriver à bon compte.</li></ul><h2>Que faire si votre enfant vomit une dose?</h2> <ul><li>S'il s'avère que votre enfant vomisse une dose une heure ou plus après avoir pris la dose de lorazépam, vous n'avez pas besoin de lui en donner une autre.</li> <li>Si votre enfant vomit en moins de 30 minutes après avoir pris la dose de lorazépam, donnez-lui-en une autre.</li></ul><h2>Quels sont les effets indésirables possibles de ce médicament?</h2> <p>Votre enfant pourrait montrer certains effets indésirables parmi les suivants pendant qu'il prend du lorazépam. Consultez votre médecin si les effets indésirables suivants perdurent chez votre enfant, ou s'ils l'incommodent : </p> <ul><li>somnolence</li> <li>mal de ventre</li> <li>étourdissements</li> <li>constipation (difficulté à aller à la selle)</li> <li>fatigue</li> <li>vacillement ou maladresse</li> <li>vision trouble</li> <li>irritabilité (mauvaise humeur)</li> <li>maux de tête</li> <li>difficulté à dormir</li> <li>bouche sèche</li> <li>diarrhée (selles liquides)</li></ul> <p>Appelez le médecin pendant les heures de bureau si votre enfant ressent l'un ou l'autre de ces effets indésirables : </p> <ul><li>trouble de l'élocution</li> <li>confusion ou changement dans le comportement </li> <li>difficulté à uriner</li> <li>agitation ou explosion de colère</li> <li>yeux ou peau jaunâtres</li> <li>urine foncée</li> <li>tremblements</li> <li>vision double</li></ul> <h3>La plupart des effets indésirables suivants ne sont pas courants, mais ils peuvent témoigner d'un problème grave. </h3> <p>Appelez votre médecin immédiatement ou amenez votre enfant au service d'urgence s'il montre un de ces signes : </p> <ul><li>perte de mémoire</li> <li>rythme cardiaque lent</li> <li>faiblesse grave</li> <li>fièvre</li> <li>somnolence grave</li> <li>difficulté à respirer</li> <li>tremblements</li> <li>essoufflement</li></ul><h2>Quelles mesures de sécurité doit-on prendre quand votre enfant prend ce médicament?</h2> <p>Vérifiez auprès du médecin ou du pharmacien avant de donner d'autres médicaments à votre enfant (sous ordonnance, en vente libre, produits à base d'herbes médicinales ou produits naturels). Le lorazépam ne fonctionne pas bien en combinaison avec certains autres médicaments comme ceux contre la toux et le rhume ainsi que les médicaments contenant de l'alcool. </p> <p>On l'utilise surtout pendant de courtes périodes de temps seulement. Demandez à votre médecin les effets indésirables possibles si votre enfant s'apprête à prendre du lorazépam régulièrement et pour une période de plus d'une semaine. </p> <p>S'il prend du lorazépam régulièrement, ne cessez pas de lui en donner sans vérifier auprès de votre médecin. Il se peut qu'il faille diminuer la dose progressivement avant de cesser complètement. Si vous cessez les médicaments soudainement, votre enfant a plus de chances de faire des crises épileptiques. </p> <p>Le lorazépam peut rendre votre enfant étourdi, somnolent et moins vigilant que la normale. Observez attentivement quand votre enfant fait quelque chose qui demande d'être alerte, comme monter les escaliers par exemple. </p><h2>Quels sont les autres renseignements importants à savoir?</h2><ul><li>Gardez une liste de tous les médicaments de votre enfant et montrez-la à son médecin ou au pharmacien.</li><li>Ne partagez pas les médicaments de votre enfant avec les autres. N'administrez pas à votre enfant les médicaments de quelqu'un d'autre.</li><li>Assurez-vous que vous avez assez de lorazépam pour les fins de semaine, les fêtes et les vacances. Appelez votre pharmacie au moins deux jours avant que votre enfant n'ait plus de médicament pour demander un renouvellement. </li><li>Gardez le lorazépam à la température de la pièce dans un endroit frais et sec, loin du soleil. NE l'entreposez PAS dans la salle de bains ou la cuisine.</li><li>Ne gardez pas de médicaments périmés. Demandez au pharmacien quelle est la meilleure façon de jeter des médicaments périmés ou restants.<span id="ms-rterangecursor-start" aria-hidden="true"></span><span id="ms-rterangecursor-end" aria-hidden="true"></span><br></li></ul>
