Frequently asked questions about Myorelex Injection
Myorelex is a nicotinic acetylcholine receptor non-competitive agonist
Myorelex is used in anesthesia to induce muscle relaxation during operations, to facilitate endotracheal intubation (help insert a tube into the windpipe), reduce strong muscle contraction
Myorelex apnoea occurs when a patient does not have the enzymes to metabolise the drug. Due to this, a patient may remain paralysed for an increased length of time and cannot breathe adequately at the end of an anaesthetic
The initial metabolite of Myorelex produces a transient negative chronotropic effect through its stimulation of sinus node muscarinic receptors. Repeated dosing or infusions of Myorelex may lead to bradycardia that is appropriately treated with atropine
Q. Why does suxamethonium cause hyperkalemia (high potassium levels in the blood)?
Administration of suxamethonium may lead to depolarization and a large efflux of intracellular potassium into the plasma thereby resulting in hyperkalemia
Myorelex cause fasciculation by an action on some distal part of motor nerve fibres
Myorelex is still used during general anesthesia
Myorelex is a short-acting muscle relaxant which exerts a depolarizing effect at the neuromuscular junction. This effect is not reversible pharmacologically
Yes, Myorelex should not be used in burned patients
Myorelex sensitivity is when the drug remains active for a longer period of time than is usual due to which muscles stay relaxed
In normal therapeutic doses, Myorelex does not cross the placental barrier in sufficient amounts.
