What should I know about rocuronium injection before receiving it?

Your dose of rocuronium injection may need to be changed, or you may need special care to be able to safely take this drug if you have certain medical conditions. Tell your doctor if you have myasthenia gravis, kidney disease, an acid-base imbalance or electrolyte disturbance, high blood pressure, cachexia, Lambert-Eaton syndrome, circulatory problems, if you have ever had an allergic reaction to any other anesthetic drug or if you have a heart disease or a history of a heart problem called long QT syndrome. People with cirrhosis or other liver disease may take longer to recover from taking rocuronium injection, so be sure to tell your doctor if you have liver disease. The effects of rocuronium injection during pregnancy and while breastfeeding are not yet known, so be sure to tell your doctor if you are pregnant, might be pregnant or if you are breastfeeding.
