What is the most important information I should know about biperiden (akineton)?
What should I avoid while taking biperiden?
Use caution when driving, operating machinery, or performing other hazardous activities. Biperiden may cause dizziness or blurred vision. If you experience dizziness or blurred vision, avoid these activities.
Use alcohol cautiously. Alcohol may increase drowsiness and dizziness while you are taking biperiden.
Avoid becoming overheated. Biperiden may cause decreased sweating. This could lead to heat stroke in hot weather or with vigorous exercise.
