(da' na zole)Danazol must not be taken by women who are pregnant or who could become pregnant. Danazol may harm the fetus. You will need to have a negative pregnancy test before you begin taking this medication. Start taking this medication during your menstrual cycle to be sure you are not pregnant. Use effective birth control during your treatment. Danazol may decrease the effectiveness of hormonal contraceptives (birth control pills, patches, rings, implants, or injections), so you should not use these as your only method of birth control during your treatment. You also must use a barrier method of birth control (device that blocks sperm from entering the uterus such as a condom or a diaphragm). Ask your doctor to help you choose a method of birth control that will work for you. If you become pregnant while taking danazol, call your doctor immediately. Danazol can increase your risk that you will develop a blood clot in your arms, legs, lungs, heart, and brain that may cause a heart attack or stroke. Tell your doctor if you have or ever had a blood clot. If you experience any of the following symptoms call your doctor immediately: warm, red, swollen, or tender leg; trouble speaking or understanding; paralysis or numbness in face, arm or leg; sudden severe headache; sudden changes in vision, blurred or blackened vision, or seeing double. Danazol may cause liver damage with abdominal bleeding in people who take danazol for a long time. Tell your doctor if you have or have ever had liver disease. If you experience any of the following symptoms call your doctor immediately: yellowing of the skin or eyes, pain in stomach area, extreme tiredness, or unusual bleeding or bruising. Danazol can cause increased pressure of the fluid inside the skull. If you experience any of the following symptoms stop taking danazol and call your doctor immediately: headache, nausea, vomiting, or problems with your vision. Keep all appointments with your doctor and the laboratory. Your doctor may order certain lab tests before and during your treatment to check your body's response to danazol. Talk to your doctor about the risks of taking danazol.
