What should I know about Anectine before receiving it?

Before you are treated with Anectine, you should know that there is a risk of side effects and drug interactions, including some that may be serious. Some medical conditions might prevent you from using Anectine. These include:

  •  allergies;
  •  certain genetic conditions;
  •  liver disease;
  •  muscle spasms;
  •  severe burns;
  •  brain injuries, including bleeding in the brain;
  •  eye problems, including eye injuries, recent eye surgery, and glaucoma;
  •  electrolyte imbalances;
  •  plasma cholinesterase deficiency;
  •  high or low blood levels of potassium;
  •  low blood levels of calcium;
  •  traumatic injuries, including bone fractures;
  •  nerve disorders;
  •  dehydration; and
  •  stomach or abdominal infections.

If possible, you should discuss all of your health issues with your doctor before Anectine is administered. Because of potentially life-threatening side effects, children should only be treated with Anectine in an emergency when no other options are available. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should discuss the potential risks with your doctor before using Anectine.
