What are the side effects of Pedtrace?

An undiluted direct injection of Pedtrace (zinc, copper, manganese and chromium intravenous solution) should not be injected into a peripheral vein due to the possibility of inflammation of the vein. No known side effects are noted for normal usage. However, should a person overdose on this solution and experience toxicity in his or her system, the side effects may be as follows:

  • An overdose of zinc can result in excessive sweating, blurred vision, hypothermia, lowered level of consciousness, rapid heartbeat, diarrhea, jaundice, pulmonary edema, vomiting and low blood pressure. Calcium supplements may protect against a zinc overdose.
  • An overdose of chromium can result in nausea, vomiting, ulcers, renal damage, convulsions and coma.
  • Copper toxicity can produce prostration, diarrhea, behavioral changes, loss of muscle tone, sensitivity to light and swelling of soft tissues.
  • No case revealed toxicity to manganese, so possible side effects from an overdose are not known.
