Safety Information/Precautions


  • Inform your doctor if you are hypersensitive to Ufrim or Escitalopram, or if you have other allergies. Inactive components in this product may trigger allergy reactions or other complications. For more information, consult your doctor.
  • Inform your doctor about your medical history, especially if you have a personal or family history of bipolar or manic-depressive disorder, a family or personal history of attempting suicide, liver problems, seizures, low blood sodium, intestinal bleeding/ulcers (peptic ulcer) or bleeding disorders, and a family or personal history of glaucoma.

  • Low magnesium and potassium levels in the blood may potentially raise your likelihood of QT prolongation. This risk may rise if you are using certain medicines (such as diuretics) or have problems such as excessive perspiration, diarrhea, or vomiting.
  • Consult your doctor about how to use Ufrim safely.
  • Inform your doctor or dentist about all of the medicines you consume before undergoing surgery (including prescription, nonprescription and herbal medicines).
