Special instructions for Deferoxamine 500:
For parenteral administration, a 10% injection solution is used, which can be diluted with NaCl solution and dextrose; Only clear solutions should be administered. The solution cannot be stored at room temperature for more than 24 hours, dissolved deferoxamine can be added to the dialysis fluid and administered intraperitoneally to patients receiving CAPD and CCPD. In patients with elevated iron content, against the background of deferoxamine therapy, infectious diseases (including sepsis) caused by Yersinia entrerocolitica and Yersinia pseudotuberculosis can develop. If during the therapy the temperature rises and symptoms of enteritis or enterocolitis, diffuse pain in the abdominal cavity, pharyngitis appear, then the treatment is temporarily stopped and antibacterial therapy begins. Before and during therapy with deferoxamine, a hearing and vision test should be performed. In patients with encephalopathy caused by an excess of Al3 +, deferoxamine may aggravate the course of epilepsy – due to a dramatic increase in the number of circulating Al3 + (the prescription of clonazepam may prevent it). When removing Fe compounds, urine can be painted red-brown.
