Description

Talc is sprayed through a tube into the area around the lungs. It is given to people who have breathing problems caused by a buildup of fluid in this area. Talc is used after the fluid has been drained out, to prevent the problem from returning.

This medicine is to be given only by your doctor. It is available in the following dosage form:

  • Intrapleural (into the area around the lungs)-Local
  • Aerosol spray (U.S.)

Before Using This Medicine

In deciding to use a medicine, the risks of using the medicine must be weighed against the good it will do. This is a decision you and your doctor will make. For talc, the following should be considered:

Allergies—Tell your doctor if you have ever had any unusual or allergic reaction to dusting powders, some of which contain talc.

Pregnancy—Talc for use in the area around the lungs has not been studied in pregnant women. However, talc has not been shown to cause birth defects or other problems in animal studies.

Children—Studies on use of talc in the area around the lungs have been done only in adult patients, and there is no specific information comparing this use of talc with use in other age groups.

Older adults—Many medicines have not been studied specifically in older people. Therefore, it may not be known whether they work exactly the same way they do in younger adults or if they cause different side effects or problems in older people. There is no information comparing this use of talc in the elderly with use in other age groups.
