Overview

Introduction

Norbit Injection is used to treat hypotension (low blood pressure) that may occur due to causes such as sepsis (infection). It helps to increase blood pressure by narrowing the blood vessels of the heart. It may be used to revive a patient with cardiac arrest.

Norbit Injection is administered under the supervision of a doctor. Your doctor will decide the dose and duration of the medicine for you. Doctor may closely monitor your blood pressure and heart rate till you became stable. You should continue all your other medicines that are advised by the doctor for your long-term treatment even after this injection. Your doctor may advise for regular monitoring of blood pressure.

It may cause side effects like high blood pressure, headache, and insomnia (difficulty in sleeping). You must inform the doctor if you are suffering from diabetes, liver, heart or kidney disease. Also, let your doctor know about all the other medications that you are using regularly. This medicine is not usually recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding, so always consult your doctor before taking it.

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 Systemic hypertension (high blood pressure)
    You can reduce your blood pressure by eating less salt, eating more fruit and vegetables, reducing the amount of alcohol you drink, being more active and losing weight. You could also reduce your caffeine intake (found in tea, coffee and cola drinks). Also, if you smoke, seek advice about quitting. High blood pressure can be treated with a range of different medicines. You should ask your doctor whether you need medication. Keep in touch with your doctor and get your blood pressure checked regularly.
  • Coping with Headache
    Make sure you rest and drink plenty of fluids. Rest in a quiet, dimly lit room. Do not sleep more than you normally would. Do not strain your eyes (for example by looking at a screen). Do not drink alcohol. Headaches are usually temporary and usually go away with time. But, if they last longer or get worse, ask your doctor to recommend a painkiller.
  • Coping with Restlessness
    This often disappears when the condition you are being treated for is managed. You could ask your doctor about changing the dose of your medicine or alternatives if it is affecting your daily life or causing you distress. Psychological treatments may be available. Some things you can do to help yourself include stopping smoking, cutting down the amount of alcohol and caffeine you drink, and doing regular exercise. You should also eat a healthy diet and find out how to get sleep if you are having trouble. Try talking to a friend or family member. Calming breathing exercises and other relaxation techniques may also help.
  • Coping with Palpitations
    If this happens regularly after you take your medicine, try to take the medicine at a time when you can sit or lie down when the symptoms are worse. It may help to cut down on alcohol, smoking, caffeine and big meals as these might make the problem worse. If you are still having problems after a week, speak to your doctor as you may be offered a different type of medicine.
  • Coping with Tremor
    These symptoms can be a sign that the dose is too high for you. It may help to change your dose or take your medicine at a different time of the day. There are also exercises that can improve muscle strength, control and coordination. In terms of lifestyle, avoid caffeine (in coffee, tea and chocolate), alcohol, and ask your doctor about other techniques to help you relax and manage stress. Talk to your doctor if this bothers you. Your doctor may be able to prescribe you medicines that can help.
