Betadine Alcoholic Solution (Molnlycke Health Care )


1. Name Of The Medicinal Product

Betadine Alcoholic Solution.

2. Qualitative And Quantitative Composition

Povidone iodine 10.0% w/v.

3. Pharmaceutical Form

Alcoholic solution.

4. Clinical Particulars 4.1 Therapeutic Indications

For use as an antiseptic skin cleanser for major and minor surgical procedures where a quick drying effect is desired.

4.2 Posology And Method Of Administration

For topical administration.

4.3 Contraindications

Known or suspected iodine hypersensitivity. Regular use is contraindicated in patients and users with thyroid disorders (in particular nodular colloid goitre, endemic goitre and Hashimoto's thyroiditis).

4.4 Special Warnings And Precautions For Use

Special caution is needed when regular applications to broken skin are made to patients with pre-existing renal insufficiency.

4.5 Interaction With Other Medicinal Products And Other Forms Of Interaction

Absorption of iodine from povidone iodine through either intact or damaged skin may interfere with thyroid function tests. Contamination with povidone iodine of several types of tests for the detection of occult blood in faeces or blood in urine may produce false-positive results.

4.6 Pregnancy And Lactation

Regular use of povidone iodine should be avoided in pregnant or lactating women as absorbed iodine can cross the placental barrier and can be secreted into breast milk. Although no adverse effects have been reported from limited use, caution should be recommended and therapeutic benefit must be balanced against possible effects of the absorption of iodine on foetal thyroid function and development.

4.7 Effects On Ability To Drive And Use Machines

None known.

4.8 Undesirable Effects

Povidone iodine may produce local skin reactions, although it is considered to be less irritant than iodine. The application of povidone iodine to large wounds or severe burns may produce systemic adverse effects such as metabolic acidosis, hypernatraemia and impairment of renal function.

4.9 Overdose

Excess iodine can produce goitre and hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. Systemic absorption of iodine after repeated application of povidone iodine to large areas of wounds or burns may lead to a number of adverse effects: metallic taste in mouth, increased salivation, burning or pain in the throat or mouth, irritation and swelling of the eyes, pulmonary oedema, skin reactions, gastrointestinal upset and diarrhoea, metabolic acidosis, hypernatraemia and renal impairment. Treatment: In the case of accidental ingestion of large quantities of Betadine symptomatic and supportive treatment should be provided, with special attention to electrolyte balance and renal and thyroid function.

5. Pharmacological Properties 5.1 Pharmacodynamic Properties

The active ingredient, povidone iodine, slowly liberates iodine when in contact with skin and mucous membranes. The activity of 'iodine' as a microbicide is then governed by a series of dissociations: I2? I+ + I- ; I2 + H2O ? H2O I+ + I- ; I2 + I- ? I3-. The microbicidal species H2O I+ preferentially displaces oxygen as the end electron acceptor in the microorganism's respiratory cycle. H2O I+ similarly interacts within the electron transport chain and reacts with the amino acids of the microbial cell membrane.

5.2 Pharmacokinetic Properties

Betadine Alcoholic Solution is for topical application and therefore a consideration of the absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion of povidone iodine is largely without relevance.

5.3 Preclinical Safety Data

Not applicable.

6. Pharmaceutical Particulars 6.1 List Of Excipients

Nonoxynol 9; dibasic sodium phosphate (anhydrous); citric acid monohydrate; glycerol; industrial methylated spirit; sodium hydroxide; purified water.

6.2 Incompatibilities

None.

6.3 Shelf Life

36 months.

6.4 Special Precautions For Storage

To be stored at or below 25 degrees Celsius and protected from light.

Virazole 6 g Aerosol


Virazole 6 g Aerosol

Ribavirin

Keep this leaflet. You may need to read it again. This leaflet tells you about Virazole Aerosol. It does not contain all the information about Virazole. If you have any questions or are unsure of anything ask the doctor or nurse. If any side effect occurs and this becomes serious, tell the doctor or hospital pharmacist. In this leaflet: 1. What Virazole is and what it is used for 2. Before Virazole Aerosol is given 3. How Virazole Aerosol is given 4. Possible side effects 5. How Virazole Aerosol is stored 6. Further information What Virazole Is And What It Is Used For

Virazole belongs to a group of medicines called antivirals. Antiviral agents are used to treat viruses which cause infections. Virazole is used to treat a virus called Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV).

This virus infects the lungs. Virazole Aerosol is only to be used in babies and children.

Before Virazole Aerosol Is Given Take special care with Virazole

Virazole Aerosol is given to patients using a mask or a hood. It is possible that some of the Virazole may escape the mask or hood and lead to other people (e.g. visitors to the patient, doctors and nurses) being accidentally exposed to Virazole and breathing in the medicine.

To minimise unnecessary exposure to Virazole the doctor or nurse should turn off the machine (called SPAG or Aiolos Nebuliser) through which Virazole is given, 5 to 10 minutes before visitors see the patient. It is especially important for women who are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or who are breast-feeding, to avoid exposure to Virazole Aerosol. This is because the risk of Virazole Aerosol causing harm to the unborn baby is unknown.

Using other medicines

Tell the doctor or nurse if you know that the patient is taking or has recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription.

If adults are given Virazole

The following information is included in case an adult is given this medicine: Virazole should not be used in women who are pregnant, may become pregnant, or who are breast-feeding.

How Virazole Aerosol Is Given

Virazole Aerosol is used only in a hospital and is administered by a doctor or nurse.

Virazole Aerosol is usually given to patients using a mask or a hood. To administer Virazole, the doctor or nurse dissolves the Virazole powder in sterile water. This solution is then aerosolised (converted into a fine mist of droplets) using a device (equipment) called a Small Particle Aerosol Generator (SPAG) or a device called an Aiolos Nebuliser. The SPAG or Aiolos Nebuliser is connected to a face mask or hood so that the patient can breathe in the aerosol (fine droplets) into the infected lungs.

Patients who are on a ventilator to help them breathe will be monitored closely by the nurse or doctor during treatment with Virazole to prevent build up of Virazole fluid in the tubing associated with the ventilator equipment.

The usual dose is one vial of Virazole (equivalent to 6 g of ribavirin), inhaled each day over a period of 12 to 18 hours. Usually the treatment is given over 3 days. Sometimes the doctor may decide to treat the patient for up to 7 days.

Possible Side Effects

Like all medicines, Virazole can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.

The following have occasionally been reported during treatment with Virazole:

Pneumonia Breathing becomes more difficult Collapse of the lung Anaemia (a reduction in red blood cells that can make the skin pale and cause weakness or breathlessness) has been reported when ribavirin has been given by injection and orally. Anaemia may also arise rarely with Virazole Aerosol.

It is not known whether Virazole caused all these problems.

If you are concerned about these side effects or if you notice any side effects not listed in this leaflet, please tell the doctor or hospital pharmacist.

Visitors and hospital staff may be accidentally exposed to Virazole Aerosol (see Section 2, “Before Virazole Aerosol is Given”). This can cause headache, wheezing, fever, and nasal congestion. These effects are most likely to happen in the doctors or nurses giving Virazole Aerosol to the patient.

How Virazole Aerosol Is Stored

All medicines should be kept out of the reach and sight of children.

Hospital staff should store Virazole in a dry place below 25?C.

This product should not be used after the expiry date shown on the box and Virazole vials. The expiry date refers to the last day of that month.
Once Virazole has been mixed with sterile water it should be used within 24 hours.

Medicines should not be disposed of via waste-water or household waste. The pharmacist should provide instructions as to how to dispose of medicines no longer required. These measures will help to protect the environment.

Further Information What Virazole contains The active substance is ribavirin. Each vial of Virazole contains 6 g of ribavirin. There are no other ingredients. What Virazole looks like and contents of the pack

Virazole is supplied in packs of three vials. Each vial contains 6 g of ribavirin white powder.
