What is Vomepram and what is it used for?

Vomepram is a drug applied into the muscle/intravenous in a transparent glass bulb containing a 2 mL colorless solution. The active ingredient of Vomepram is metoclopraid HCl. Each 2 mL bulb contains 10 mg of metoclopramide HCl. It is available in 5-bulb packages.

VOMEPRAM acts on the muscles that allow nutrients in the digestive tract to progress in the stomach and intestines.

The most common use of Vomepram is the prevention and treatment of nausea and vomiting (antiemetic). Vomepram is especially effective in eliminating nausea due to migraine and cancer treatments. It can also be used in some diagnostic tests, for example, when a tube needs to be inserted into the stomach or intestine, or during barium examination.

It is also effective in relieving the discomfort caused by acid increase in the stomach.

Vomepram is used for postoperative nausea and vomiting in children older than 1 year. It is not recommended to be used for other purposes in children.

  • If you are in the period after gastrointestinal operation,
  • If your vomiting is due to pregnancy,
  • If you have severe renal failure,
  • If you are using other drugs that can lead to extrapyramidal reactions (a group of disorders manifested by symptoms such as muscle stiffness, uncoordinated movements, saliva flow, impaired voluntary movements),
  • If you have epilepsy,
  • Porphyria (a type of hereditary disease that causes abdominal and muscle cramps),
  • If there is severe asthma,
  • If you are hypersensitive to sulfite,
  • If there are cases that cause nausea,such as cerebral irritation (as it can mask symptoms),
  • If you have pheochromocytoma (tumor caused by the adrenal gland) (as it can cause a high blood pressure attack),
  • Do not use if you are breastfeeding.
  • It should not be used in children under the age of one.

 

Situations that need to be used with caution

If:

  • If you have breast cancer,
  • If you have high blood pressure,
  • If you have severe mental breakdown (depression),
  • If you have Parkinson’s,
  • If you have diabetes,
  • If there is a weakening of your hearing,
  • If you have diarrhea,
  • If you’re pregnant,
  • If your kidney function is poor,
  • If you’re old,
  • If you have an extrapyroidal reaction (a group of disorders manifested by symptoms such as muscle stiffness, uncoordinated movements, saliva flow, impaired voluntary movements), use this drug carefully.
  • During long-term or high doses of treatment; If involuntary movements occur in the arms and legs, abnormal movements (tardive discinesis) occur in the face, lips, jaw and tongue, stop treatment.

 

Vomepram should not be used in children under 1 year of age because there is not enough data on its effectiveness and safety in children. Oral use is not recommended under the age of 18.

it is used as parenteral (intra-muscular or intravenous) in the treatment of nausea and vomiting after surgery under the age of 18.

If these warnings apply to you, even in any period in the past, please consult your doctor.

Driving

Since Vomepram has side effects affecting vehicle and machine use such as napping, impaired voluntary movements, dystonia (impaired movement caused by involuntary contractions in the muscles), visual discomfort, people using tools and machines should be careful.

Important information about some of the auxiliary substances contained in Vomepram

This medicinal product contains less than 1 mmol (23 mg) of sodium per 2 mL dose; no side effects are observed due to the amount of it.

It contains sodium metabisulite. It can rarely cause severe hypersensitivity reactions and spasms of the bronchi (bronchospasm).

Use in combination with other drugs

The following drugs are of particular importance as they may interact with Vomepram .

  • Vomepram should not be used with the drugs used to treat epilepsy. Vomepram may increase the frequency and severity of seizures in patients with seizure (hold) disorders.
  • Its use in combination with drugs used to treat depression, called serotonergic drugs (SSRI), may increase the risk of serotonin syndrome (dizziness, restlessness, feeling drunk, temperature, sweating or muscle stiffness).
  • Use in combination with drugs used in Parkinson’s disease (e.g. levodopa, bromocrite, kabergolin) may reduce the effects of these drugs.
  • Using prolactin in your blood in combination with drugs that reduce hormone levels (e.g. bromocrite, kabergolin) can eliminate the therapeutic effects of these drugs.
  • Vomepram can lead to extrapyramidal reactions (a group of disorders manifested by symptoms such as muscle stiffness, uncoordinated movements, saliva flow, impaired voluntary movements). It should not be used in combination with drugs with similar effects, such as drugs used for unprovoked fear (phobia) or some form of mental disorder (psychosis) or other drugs that affect the brain.
  • Anticholinergic drugs (drugs used to treat incontinence) reverse the effects of Vomepram on gastrointestinal tract movements.
  • Its use in combination with drugs containing atovakuon used to treat pneumonia may reduce the amount (level) of atovakuon in the blood.
  • Since the stomach changes the time of ejaculation, metoclodramide prevents the absorption of drugs (digoxin, simetidine) absorbed from the stomach, while increasing the absorption of those absorbed from the small intestine (paracetamol and aspirin).
  • Narcotic painkillers (e.g. morphine) reverse the effects of Vomepram on gastrointestinal tract movements.
  • Other drugs used to treat nausea and vomiting (e.g. droperidol) should not be used in contravening Vomepram as they can cause extrapyramidal reactions such as Vomepram .
  • Its use in combination with sucmetonicium (a drug used to relax muscles) increases the effect of sucmetonic neuromuscular blocking (cessation of nerve transmission at the nerve muscle junction).
  • Using silkosporin, a drug used to suppress immune system responses [e.g., after transplant surgeries or in the treatment of a persistent disease (rheumatoid arthritis) or special skin conditions that cause pain and disfigurement in the joints], may increase the absorption and blood level of cyclosporine.

Exceptions

Kidney/Liver failure:

VOMEPRAM should be used carefully and in reduced doses during long-term treatment in patients with clinically significant kidney or liver failure.

Metoclodramide metabolizes in the liver and most of it is excreted by kidney disease along with its metabolites.

If you have any indication that the effect of Vomepram is very strong or weak, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

 

Overdose and Treatment

Overdose therapy is usually symptomatic or supportive treatment. If overdoses are taken, symptoms such as lethargy, inability to determine direction, restlessness and extrapiramidal reactions may occur. These symptoms usually disappear within 24 hours. In emergency situations, such symptoms can be controlled with anticholinergic and antiparkinson drugs or effective drugs against allergic diseases with anticholinergic effects. (e.g. 50 mg IM Diphenhydramine HCI, benztropin).

Gastric lavage (washing and pulling out the contents by sending liquids into the stomach via type, gastric washing) should be performed.

Hemodialysis (the process of cleaning the blood) does not help remove metoclopramidine from the body.

If you have used more than you should use from Vomepram , talk to a doctor or pharmacist.

If You Forget to Use

Do not take double doses to balance forgotten doses.

Cyberchondria

The truth is that when we’re sick, or worried about getting sick, the internet won’t help.

According to Wikipedia, cyberchondria is a mental disorder consisting in the desire to independently make a diagnosis based on the symptoms of diseases described on Internet sites.

Why you can't look for symptoms on the Internet

If diagnoses could be made simply from a textbook or an article on a website, we would all be doctors and treat ourselves. Nothing can replace the experience and knowledge of specially trained people. As in any field, in medicine there are unscrupulous specialists, differences of opinion, inaccurate diagnoses and incorrect test results.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES PLEASE DO NOT USE THE INTERNET TO DIAGNOSE ANY KIND OF HEALTH-RELATED PROBLEMS OR DISEASES!
