Dosage and Administration:-
oUsually, the dose to adults is 0.5g-2g, two to four times daily; while the dose to children is 40-80mg, three to four times daily, both through IM\IV injection. Dosage adjustment may be needed according to patients’ age and different symptoms. To adult patients with septicemia, the daily dose can be increased to 4g, while to pediatric patients with critical illness or incurable infections like septicemia, cerebrospinal meningitis, the daily dose can be increased to 160mg/kg. Dissolve the drug in sodium chloride or dextrose infusion before intravenous injection. In addition, add 0.25-2g of the drug to sugar, electrolyte and amino acid solution and intravenous drip within 30 minutes to 2 hours, while dosage administrated to children can refer to the above-mentioned dosage above. When added to fluid infusion, the period of intravenous injection is within 30 minutes to 1 hour.
The preparation method of injection: because the drug contains sodium carbonate anhydrous, a buffer, which may generate CO2 when dissolved, and the pressure in the bottle is negative. When dissolving 1g, inject 5mL solvent into the bottle. (If 1g of the drug is used for intravenous injection, inject 100mL solvent.)
Usually 1g is diluted to 20mL for intravenous injection.
Water for injection is not recommended for dilution because it cannot form isotonic solution on intravenous dripping.
When dissolving the drug, please read through the dissolving method directions attached to it.
Contacting measles may occur when preparing for the injection. If the hands swell, itch or redden, general appearance of rash, itching, bellyache, nausea, and vomiting, please avoid touching the drug afterwards.
Adverse Reactions:-
Shock:Because shock symptom occasionally occurs, attention should be paid to observe after administration. If symptoms such as discomfort, paresthesia in the oral cavity, stridor, dizziness, sense of defecation, tinnitus, sweating occur, stop administrating.
Anaphylaxis: If anaphylaxis such as rash, urticaria, erythema, itching, fever, enlargement of lymph glands, and arthralgia occur, stop administrating and deal with them properly.
Kidney: Because severe renal dysfunction like acute renal failure occasionally occurs, conduct regular body check and sufficient observation. When abnormal conditions occur, stop administrating and deal with them properly.
Blood: Decrease in erythrocytes, granulocytes, platelets and increase in eosinophilic leukocytes occur sometimes, while hemolytic anemia occasionally occurs.
Liver: Increase in AST, ALT, Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) occurs sometimes, and increase in bilirubin, lactate dehydrogenase and γ-glutamyl transpeptidase occasionally occurs.
Digestive system: Severe colitis with bloody stool symptoms such as pseudomembraneous colitis occasionally occurs. If bellyache or repeated diarrhea occurs because of taking the drug, stop administrating immediately and deal with them properly. Sometimes nausea and diarrhea are caused; occasionally symptoms such as vomiting, inappetence and bellyache occur.
Respiratory system: Interstitial pneumonia with symptoms such as fever, cough, dyspnea, abnormal chest x-ray, and increase in eosinophilic leukocyte occasionally occur. If the above mentioned symptoms occur, stop administrating and inject adrenocortical hormones to deal with them properly.
Central nervous system: Neurological symptoms like spasm may sometimes occur when patients with renal failure are given a large dose.
Superinfection: Stomatitis and candidiasis occasionally occur.
Avitaminosis: Vitamin K deficiency (such as hypoprothrombinemia, bleeding tendency), and vitamin B deficiency (glossitis, stomatitis, inappetence and neuritis) occasionally occur.
Others: Dizziness, headache, lethargy and numbness occasionally occur.
