Duratocin RTS Injection

Prescription Required

Product introduction

Duratocin RTS Injection is a medicine used to treat bleeding in women who have just had a baby. In some women, the womb (uterus) doesn’t contract (shrink) quickly enough after delivery. This makes it more likely that they’ll bleed more than normal. Duratocin RTS Injection makes the womb contract and helps reduce the risk of bleeding.

Duratocin RTS Injection is given as an intravenous injection by a doctor or a nurse. You should not self-administer this medicine at home. Duratocin RTS Injection must not be given until after the baby has been delivered. Before receiving this injection, let your doctor know if you have any medical conditions.

Some of the most common side effects of this medicine include nausea, stomach pain, itching, flushing, low blood pressure, headaches, and tremors. Consult your doctor if any of these side effects bother you or get worse. Let your doctor also know if you develop any new symptoms while you are being treated with Duratocin RTS Injection.

You should not use Duratocin RTS Injection if you are allergic to any components of this medicine. You should also not use this medicine if you have any kidney or liver problems, have heart problems, or have a history of epilepsy. Let your doctor also know if you have migraines, asthma, or preeclampsia. Duratocin RTS Injection should not be used in pregnant women.

In Prevention of Postpartum Bleeding

This drug helps with the proper contraction of the uterus, and therefore, prevents hemorrhage and further complications.

How Duratocin Injection works

Duratocin RTS Injection belongs to a class of medicines called oxytocin receptor agonists. Oxytocin is the hormone that helps in muscle contraction during labor. This medicine binds with oxytocin receptors present on the smooth muscles of the uterus and helps in muscle contractions. These rhythmic contractions of the uterus help in childbirth and prevent excessive bleeding after childbirth.

Heavy bleeding is expected after a delayed period. Try Tranexa tablets to control the bleeding.

Dr. Megha Tuli

Hi dear. Usually bleeding decreases while on Diane 35. Also amount if bleeding would depend on how you are taking the pills. However don't worry, decrease in bleeding is expected.
