What happens if I miss a dose ?
Since papaverine injection is given as needed by a healthcare professional, it is not likely that you will miss a dose.
What happens if I overdose ?
Seek emergency medical attention if you think you have received too much of this medicine.
Overdose symptoms may include weakness, nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, blurred vision, sweating, warmth or redness under your skin, fast heart rate, or seizure (convulsions).
What should I avoid while receiving papaverine injection ?
Tell your doctor if you regularly use other medicines that make you sleepy (such as cold or allergy medicine, narcotic pain medicine, sleeping pills, muscle relaxers, and medicine for seizures, depression, or anxiety). They can add to drowsiness caused by papaverine injection.
What other drugs will affect papaverine injection ?
Before using papaverine injection, tell your doctor if you take levodopa (Larodopa, Atamet, Parcopa, Sinemet).
This list is not complete and there may be other drugs that can interact with papaverine injection. Tell your doctor about all your prescription and over-the-counter medications, vitamins, minerals, herbal products, and drugs prescribed by other doctors. Do not start a new medication without telling your doctor.
Where can I get more information?
Your pharmacist can provide more information about papaverine injection.
Remember, keep this and all other medicines out of the reach of children, never share your medicines with others, and use this medication only for the indication prescribed.
