Prescription Required

Overview

Introduction

Malano 0.6mg Injection is used to treat bradycardia(slow heart rate). It helps to restore normal heartbeat in cardiac arrest cases. This injection is also given before general anesthesia to reduce saliva secretions. It even works as an antidote to some insecticide poisoning.

Malano 0.6mg Injection may be used in combination with other medicines to reverse the effect of muscle relaxants during surgery. It is given by your doctor or nurse, who will make sure you get the right amount. Let your doctor know about all other medications you are taking as some may affect, or be affected by this medicine.

Common side effects of this medicine include blurred vision and fast heart rate. Dry mouth may also occur while using this medicine so, try to do frequent mouth rinses, maintain good oral hygiene and increase water intake.

Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also consult their doctor before taking this medicine. It is better to avoid this medication if you are suffering from any severe heart disease or urinary retention.

Side effects of Malano Injection

Common
  • Blurred vision
  • Increased heart rate
  • Dryness in mouth
  • Injection site pain

How to cope with side effects?

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Blurred vision
    You can consider washing your eyes with water. Avoid driving or using tools or machines if your vision is impaired. Do not take your next dose if your vision is still blurry. If it gets worse or does not improve, ask your doctor to recommend eye drops or talk about changing your medications.
  • Coping with Increased heart rate
    Breathe in slowly through your nostrils and then breathe out through your mouth. Repeat this until you feel calm. Try sitting cross-legged and drink plenty of water. Splash cold water or apply a cold towel or ice pack on your face for 20-30 seconds. It is important to make sure that you are not taking more than the prescribed dose. As a preventive measure, you should limit the amount of alcohol you drink and give up smoking. Also, cut down the amount of coffee, tea or cola you drink. In general, being physically active and eating a healthy well-balanced diet is good advice for any heart condition. If the condition does not improve, consult your doctor as they may need to change you to a different type of medicine.
  • Coping with Dryness in mouth
    Keep a drink available that you can sip through the day. Rinse your mouth with warm salted water and chew sugarless gum or hard candy. Try breathing through your nose more often than your mouth. Avoid caffeinated beverages, smoking and alcohol because they can make your condition worse. Use lip balm if your lips are also dry. Try to avoid foods that are acidic (like lemons), spicy, salty or sugary. If this side effect bothers you or does not go away, talk to your doctor about artificial saliva products or other suitable treatments.
  • Coping with Injection site pain
    Try to change the area of injection and the exact site of injection each time. Apply a cold compress to the injection site. These symptoms are usually mild and should only last a few hours. You can ask your doctor to recommend a medicine if it is bothering you.

How Malano Injection works

Malano 0.6mg Injection is an anticholinergic medication. It works by blocking the activity of a chemical messenger (acetylcholine). This helps dry up secretions (saliva, sweat, etc.) from glands before surgery, increases a low heart rate and decreases intestinal contractions (spasms). It also works as an antidote in certain types of poisoning and reverses the side effects of certain muscle relaxing medicines.
