SIDE EFFECTS

Peripheral Infusions

A 3.5% to 5% solution of amino acids (without additives) is slightly hypertonic. Use of large peripheral veins, inline filters, and slowing the rate of infusion may reduce the incidence of local venous irritation. Electrolyte additives should be spread throughout the day. Irritating additive medications may need to be infused at another venous site.

Generalized flushing, fever and nausea also have been reported during peripheral infusions of amino acid solutions.
