About Milrineon Injection

Milrineon Injection belongs to the group of medications called vasodilators used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) and short-term treatment of severe congestive heart failure. Hypertension is a chronic medical condition in which there is a high pressure of blood against the arteries walls (blood vessels). It is considered an essential risk factor for cardiovascular (heart) diseases. Heart failure is a chronic condition in which the heart cannot pump blood as effectively as it should. 

Milrineon Injection is a vasodilator that helps widen and relax the constricted blood vessels (due to high blood pressure) to promote blood flow, thereby reducing the high blood pressure.

Milrineon Injection is given as an injection. It is administered by a healthcare professional. The common side-effects of Milrineon Injection are headache, easy bruising, and tremors (uncontrollable rhythmic movement). These side effects usually do not require medical attention and gradually resolve during the treatment. If you experience any other symptoms you think may be due to Milrineon Injection, please consult your doctor or pharmacist for further advice.

Do not take Milrineon Injection if you have recently had a heart attack. Try not to miss or stop the Milrineon Injection on your own. Stopping Milrineon Injection may worsen your condition and increase your risk of cardiovascular death, heart attack, and stroke. Let your doctor know if you have a heart rhythm disorder, low levels of potassium, or kidney problems. Milrineon Injection should be taken cautiously in pregnant or breastfeeding women. Your doctor will monitor heart rate, blood pressure, kidney function, and electrolytes during the treatment with Milrineon Injection.

Symptoms of heart failure include shortness of breath, tiredness, a fast heartbeat, and swollen legs.

Hypertension (high blood pressure): It is a medical condition in which blood pressure is elevated persistently in the arteries. It is considered an essential risk factor for cardiovascular diseases and can be caused due to obesity, diabetes, smoking, high salt intake, stress, lack of physical activity, or ageing.
