TrophAmine is a prescription amino acid injection that contains both essential and nonessential amino acids, including leucine, isoleucine and valine. TrophAmine is administered continually over 24-hour periods. When supplemented with dextrose (glucose), electrolytes and vitamins, TrophAmine is used to help increase weight in low birth weight infants.
