Effects on the Ability to Drive or Operate Machinery

Advise patients that Tigan can cause drowsiness and may impair their judgment, thinking, or motor skills required for tasks such as driving a motor vehicle or operating machinery. Inform patients not to operate motor vehicles or other dangerous machinery until they are reasonably certain that Tigan does not affect them adversely [see Warnings and Precautions (5.5)].
