It is injected into a vein under the supervision of a doctor. Your doctor may monitor your blood pressure after giving this medicine.

Common side effects of this medicine include dizziness, weakness, dehydration, decreased potassium level in blood, increased blood uric acid, decreased magnesium level in blood, and increased thirst. These are usually mild and disappear after a short time. Consult your doctor if they bother you or do not go away.

Before taking this medicine, let your doctor know if you have any liver problems. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also consult their doctor before taking it. Regular monitoring of kidney function tests and electrolyte levels is important while using this medicine.

Any medication that is advised by your doctor for the long-term treatment of your underlying condition should be continued even after this emergency injection.
