VPARIN 25000I.U INJECTION
VH BHAGATH & CO
VPARIN 25000I.U INJECTION belongs to a class of drugs called anticoagulants or blood thinners. VPARIN 25000I.U INJECTION is primarily used to prevent and treat deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in leg veins), pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lung), stroke, Transient ischaemic attack (TIA), and heart attacks. Deep vein thrombosis is a medical condition in which blood clots form in deep veins usually in the legs. Pulmonary embolism is a condition in which a blood clot blocks the arteries in the lungs. A stroke is a condition where a blood clot restricts the flow of blood to your brain, causing brain cells to die and possibly resulting in permanent brain damage or death. Transient ischaemic attack (TIA) is a condition also called 'mini-strokes', these have similar symptoms to a stroke, but the effects usually last less than 24 hours. Heart attack is a condition where a blood clot blocks a blood vessel supplying your heart, starving it of oxygen and causing chest pain and sometimes death.
Blood clots are formed to stop bleeding that occurs due to tissue injury. Though blood clots are useful to stop bleeding, they may be harmful when abnormally formed within blood vessels as they block blood vessels and inhibit blood flow to essential organs such as the brain, heart, or lungs. VPARIN 25000I.U INJECTION works by inhibiting the production of fibrin (a protein that binds platelets together and forms a clot) preventing blood clot formation.
VPARIN 25000I.U INJECTION will be administered by a healthcare professional; do not self-administer. Some people may experience hemorrhage, thrombocytopenia (low platelets), hypersensitivity reactions, and elevations of liver enzyme (aminotransferase) levels. Most of these side effects of VPARIN 25000I.U INJECTION do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.
If you are known to be allergic to VPARIN 25000I.U INJECTION or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. It is not known whether VPARIN 25000I.U INJECTION harms the baby or passes into breast milk in pregnancy and breastfeeding state. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is advised to consult a doctor before using VPARIN 25000I.U INJECTION. VPARIN 25000I.U INJECTION is not recommended for children below 2 months of age.
