General Information On Ddavp Injection
Ddvap Injection is used for preventing dehydration and controlling excess urination and increased thirst caused by diabetes insipidus (water diabetes), brain surgery, or a head injury.
Desmopressin (generic name of this drug) is a man-made form of vasopressin, a hormone that helps our body regulate the production of urine, use of water, blood pressure, and blood flow. Regular use of this drug ensures that the level of vasopressin in the body is adequate. This, in turn, ensures the normal working of bodily functions that this hormone controls.
Side Effects for Ddavp Injection
Before you start any medical treatment, you should be aware of its possible side effects. So, it is recommended that you read the patient information leaflet that you receive when you buy Ddvap Injection. This leaflet should contain a complete list of side effects that this drug may cause. In addition, before starting treatment, you may consider talking to your doctor about what side effects to expect and how to deal with them.
Some patients who buy Ddvap Injection may experience the following serious side effects: sudden and unexplained weight gain, swelling, severe or persistent nausea, vomiting, headache, or weakness, loss of appetite, muscle pain, weakness, cramps or spasms, seizures, loss of consciousness, mental/mood changes, or fainting. If you notice any of the aforementioned symptoms, contact your doctor or pharmacist immediately.
In addition to the above, Desmopressin may also cause mild side effects such as mild diarrhea, headache, or nausea. These side effects only last for a few days and generally occur during the start of the treatment.
An allergic reaction to Ddvap Injection is extremely rare. However, a patient must seek immediate medical assistance if he/she shows symptoms of allergic reactions (wheezing, difficulty breathing, hives, skin rashes, and swelling of certain body parts such as the face, tongue, or lips).
Do not use this drug if you have or ever had hyponatremia (a condition of low level of sodium in the blood) or severe kidney disease. In addition, patients who are allergic to Desmopressin should also not use this drug.
To ensure that Ddvap Injection is safe for you, inform your doctor about your medical history, especially if you have cystic fibrosis, heart failure, or coronary heart disease. If you suffer from any of the aforementioned conditions, your doctor may ask you to undergo special tests, or he/she may recommend dose adjustments.
Pregnant or lactating women should use this medication only if their doctor advises them to do so.
