Colofac has proved to be well- tolerated in therapeutic doses.
Though experiments in rats and rabbits have shown Colofac not to be teratogenic, Colofac is better avoided during pregnancy.

The pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic profile as well as post-marketing experiences do not indicate any harmful effect of Colofac on the ability to drive or to use machines.
Impairment of Fertility: There is no clinical data on male or female fertility; however, animal studies do not indicate harmful effects of Colofac.
