PRODUCT INTRODUCTION

Dopacin 40mg Injection is a medicine used for the treatment of low blood pressure due to heart attack, infection, heart surgery, or trauma. It is also useful in heart failure. It increases the blood pressure by increasing pumping capacity of the heart and improving blood flow in the body.

Dopacin 40mg Injection also improves urine output and may help to prevent kidney failure in critically ill patients. It is administered under the supervision of a doctor as it requires continuous blood pressure monitoring. The dose has to be individually adjusted as per the patient’s response to the therapy. You should continue all your other medicines that are advised by the doctor for your long-term treatment even after this injection. Your doctor may advise for regular monitoring of blood pressure.

 

BENEFITS OF DOPACIN INJECTION

In Heart failure

Heart failure means your heart is weak and cannot pump enough blood to your lungs and the rest of your body. The most common symptoms are breathlessness, tiredness, and swelling in your legs, ankles, abdomen and other parts of your body. Dopacin 40mg Injection makes it easier for your heart to pump blood around your body and is therefore an effective treatment for heart failure.
This medicine will help relieve your symptoms, making you feel better and more energetic. You should make appropriate lifestyle changes (such as eating healthily and keeping active) to help this medicine be effective. Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully to get maximum benefit.

In Low blood pressure

Dopacin 40mg Injection is used to normalise decreased blood pressure (hypotension) which may occur all of a sudden during an operation, severe infection (sepsis) or due to an emergency condition (cardiac arrest). This medicine helps to bring back the blood pressure within normal range and therefore prevents any sudden fall or even serious complications that might have otherwise followed due to low blood pressure.

 

HOW TO USE DOPACIN INJECTION

Your doctor or nurse will give you this medicine. Kindly do not self administer.

 

HOW DOPACIN INJECTION WORKS

Dopacin 40mg Injection is a sympathomimetic agonist. It works on the receptors in the kidney, gut, brain and heart thereby relaxing the blood vessels in these organs. This restores the poor blood supply and oxygen delivery to these organs. It also causes an increase in urine production in the kidneys and protects them from injury.
