Aminosyn II in Dextrose Injection Side Effects Center

Medical Editor: John P. Cunha, DO, FACOEP

Aminosyn II (amino acid injection) is a combination of amino acids used for central vein infusion in the prevention of nitrogen loss and negative nitrogen balance in cases where (a) the gastrointestinal tract by the oral, gastrostomy or jejunostomy route cannot or should not be used, (b) gastrointestinal absorption of nutrients is impaired or (c) metabolic requirements for protein and calories are substantially increased as with extensive burns and (d) morbidity and mortality may be reduced by replacing amino acids lost from tissue breakdown, thereby preserving tissue reserves, as in acute renal failure. Common side effects include skin redness, inflammation, and swelling, or infection at the injection site. Flushing, fever, and nausea may also occur.

The total daily dose of Aminosyn II to be infused depends on daily protein and caloric requirements and on the patient's metabolic and clinical response. Aminosyn II may interact with other drugs. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use. During pregnancy, Aminosyn II should be used only if prescribed. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.

Our Aminosyn II (amino acid injection) Side Effects Drug Center provides a comprehensive view of available drug information on the potential side effects when taking this medication.

This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.
