Tetglob 1000IU Injection

Prescription Required
Store below 30°C

Product introduction

Tetglob 1000IU Injection is recommended for prevention of tetanus following injury in patients whose tetanus immunization is incomplete or uncertain. Tetanus causes convulsions (seizures) and severe muscle spasms that can be strong enough to cause bone fractures of the spine.

Tetglob 1000IU Injection provides immediate, short-term protection against the bacteria that causes tetanus (lockjaw). A single intramuscular (IM) injection is generally recommended for children and adults, with part of the dose infiltrated around the wound if it can be identified. This protection lasts long enough to protect your body until your body can produce its own antibodies against tetanus. It is to be administered only by or under the supervision of your doctor or other healthcare professional. You may feel tired or drowsy following your tetanus vaccination.

User feedback


Q. How is tetanus caused?

Tetanus is caused by a toxin (poison) produced by the bacterium Clostridium tetani. The C. tetani bacteria cannot grow in the presence of oxygen. They produce spores that are very difficult to kill as they are resistant to heat and many chemical agents.

Q. How does tetanus spread?

C. tetani spores can be found in soil, dust and manure of many household and farm animals and humans. The bacteria usually enter the human body in the presence of anaerobic (low oxygen) conditions through an open wound or puncture in the skin . These are the only favourable conditions for C. tetani to grow. It must be noted that tetanus does not spread from person to person.

Q. How long does it take to show signs of tetanus after being exposed?

It may take around 3 to 21 days for the first symptoms to develop (incubation period). On an average, the symptoms usually appear on day 8. However, the time depends upon the site of infection which means if the injury site is far from the central nervous system, the longer will be the incubation period. The rate of risk with tetanus increases with a shorter incubation period.

Q. What are the symptoms of tetanus?

An early symptom of tetanus includes spasm of the jaw muscles which is then followed by stiffness of the neck, difficulty in swallowing and stiffness of the abdominal muscles. Other signs include fever, sweating, elevated blood pressure and rapid heart rate. Spasms often occur, which may last for several minutes and continue for 3–4 weeks. Complete recovery, if it occurs, may take months altogether.

Q. Is tetanus fatal?

Yes, tetanus can be fatal. In recent years, tetanus has been fatal in about 10% to 20% of reported cases.

Q. Is tetanus curable?

No, there is no cure for tetanus once a person develops symptoms, just supportive treatment and management of complications. The best treatment of tetanus is its prevention through immunization.

Q. How is Tetglob 1000IU Injection given?

Tetglob 1000IU Injection is administered under the supervision of a trained healthcare professional or a doctor only and should not be self-administered. It is given either in the thigh muscle (for infants and young toddlers) or in the deltoid muscle (for older children and adults). Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully to get maximum benefit from Tetglob 1000IU Injection.

Q. Who should not be given Tetglob 1000IU Injection?

Tetglob 1000IU Injection should not be given to someone who is suffering from any blood disorders which interfere with clotting or if a person is allergic to any of the ingredients of Tetglob 1000IU Injection. Consult your doctor if you are not sure.

Q. How is Tetglob 1000IU Injection stored?

Tetglob 1000IU Injection is stored in the refrigerator (2-8°C). However, it may be stored at room temperature (25°C), in the dark for a short span of time (about a week), and this will not damage the medicine usually. But, it should be protected from direct sunlight and must not be freezed either.

Q. The solution looks discolored. Can I still use Tetglob 1000IU Injection?

No. You should not use Tetglob 1000IU Injection if the medicine has changed colors or has particles in it. Normally, Tetglob 1000IU Injection is a clear to slightly cloudy, colorless to pale yellow sterile solution, available as single dose vials. The discolored solution may be contaminated and may not be as effective as it is expected to be. Also, it may cause additional side effects. So, it is better that you discard the solution and go for another vial.
