How Epitrate Injection works

Epitrate Injection 1 ml is a combination of two medicines: Adrenaline/Epinephrine and Sodium Metabisulphite. Adrenaline/Epinephrine is an alpha- and beta-adrenergic agonist. It relaxes the muscles of the eyes and dilates the pupils for a clear view during eye surgeries. Sodium Metabisulphite is an antioxidant that increases the stability of Adrenaline/Epinephrine and prevents any color formation in the injection.
