Clinimix E (amino acids with electrolytes in dextrose with calcium) is indicated as a source of calories, protein, and electrolytes for patients requiring parenteral nutrition when oral or enteral nutrition is not possible, insufficient, or contraindicated. Clinimix E may be used to treat negative nitrogen balance in patients. Common side effects of Clinimix E include:
- increased urination,
- leakage of fluid from injection site,
- glucose in the urine,
- high blood sugar (hyperglycemia), and
- hyperosmolar coma
The dosage of Clinimix E is individualized based on the patient's clinical condition (ability to adequately metabolize amino acids and dextrose), body weight and nutritional/fluid requirements, as well as additional energy given orally/enterally to the patient. Clinimix E may interact with drugs or products that can cause high blood potassium (hyperkalemia) or increase the risk of hyperkalemia, such as potassium sparing diuretics (amiloride, spironolactone, triamterene), ACE inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor antagonists, or the immunosuppressants tacrolimus and cyclosporine. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant before using Clinimix E; it is unknown how it would affect a fetus. It is unknown if Clinimix E passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
