Dobusol 250mg Injection


Overview

Introduction

Dobusol 250mg Injection is a medicine used for short-term treatment of cardiac decompensation (low blood pressure due to poorly functioning heart) due to disease like heart failure, cardiogenic shock, or heart attack. It increases the blood pressure by increasing the pumping capacity of the heart.

Dobusol 250mg Injection is also used while performing stress echocardiography evaluation of the heart. It is administered under the supervision of a doctor as it requires continuous blood pressure monitoring. The dose has to be individually adjusted as per the patient's response to therapy. You should continue all your other medicines that are advised by the doctor for your long-term treatment even after this injection. Your doctor may advise for regular monitoring of blood pressure.

It may cause side effects like high blood pressure and insomnia (difficulty in sleeping). You must inform the doctor if you are suffering from any liver or kidney disease. Also, let your doctor know about all the other medications that you are using regularly.
