Expert Advice

  • Cathlyse 18 mg Injection helps break down the blood clots in blood vessels, thereby treating conditions such as heart attack, pulmonary embolism, and stroke.
  • It should be given as soon as possible (within 12 hours) after the onset of a heart attack.
  • It is usually given by your nurse or doctor as an infusion (drip) into a vein.
  • It increases your risk of bleeding. Be careful while shaving, cutting fingernails or toenails, using sharp objects or engaging in contact sports (e.g. football, wrestling).
  • Do not discontinue use without consulting your doctor as this may increase your chances of having another heart attack or stroke.

You can get you E-GFR. when you do s.creatinine eIf it is more than 60 then you can safely continue the same drugs if post lunch sugars are acceptable that is less than 140 mg %. Some times it is safer better to change more kidney friendly drugs and small dose of insulin.
