Morrhuate Sodium Injection is a sclerosing agent used for the obliteration of primary varicosed veins that consist of simple dilation with competent valves. Morrhuate sodium injection is available in generic form. Side effects of morrhuate sodium injection include:
- burning or cramping sensations
- blood clot in the lung (pulmonary embolism)
- severe allergic (anaphylactic) reactions, and

Dosage of morrhuate sodium injection depends on the size and degree of varicosity. The usual adult dose for obliteration of small or medium veins is 50- 100 mg (1-2 mL of the 5% injection). For large veins, 150- 250 (3-5 mL of the injection) is used. Morrhuate sodium injection may interact with other drugs. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use.
