Factors predisposing patients to this rare event arc not known. Patients should be instructed to report early signs and/or symptoms of’hcpatotoxicity such as fever, rash, anorexia, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, right upper quadrant pain, dark urine, or jaundice. Cblorzoxazone should be discontinued immediately and a physician consulted if any of these signs or symptoms develops. Chlorzoxazone use should also be discontinued if a patient develops abnonnallivcr enzymes (c.g., AST, ALT, alkaline phosphatase and bilirubin). The concomitant use of alcohol or other central nervous system depressants may have an additive effect.
