"A unique type of poster placed in exam rooms helped reduce unnecessary antibiotic prescriptions for respiratory infections during flu season. The approach could help reduce costs and extend the usefulness of these drugs.
Single 10 mg doses of SYMLIN (83 times the maximum recommended dose of 120 mcg for patients with type 2 diabetes) were administered to 3 healthy volunteers. All 3 individuals reported severe nausea associated with vomiting, diarrhea, vasodilatation, and dizziness. No hypoglycemia was reported. Pramlintide has a short half-life (approximately 48 minutes in healthy individuals). Initiate supportive measures in the case of overdose.
SYMLIN is contraindicated in patients with any of the following:
- serious hypersensitivity reaction to SYMLIN or to any of its product components.
- hypoglycemia unawareness.
- confirmed gastroparesis.
