Dosing and Administration

With acromegaly and tumors of the gastroenteropancreatic system, SC - 0.05-1 mg 1-2 times a day, if necessary, the dose can be gradually increased to 0.1-0.2 mg 3 times a day; Refractory diarrhea in AIDS, SC - 0.1 mg 3 times a day, it is possible to gradually increase the dose to 0.25 mg 3 times a day. In order to prevent complications after surgery on the pancreas, the first dose of 0.1 mg is injected w / c 1 hour before laparotomy; Then after the operation, SC - 0.1 mg 3 times a day for seven consecutive days. To stop bleeding from the varicose veins of the esophagus or stomach, 25 μg / h are administered by continuous intravenous infusion for 5 days.

Precautionary measures

The drug solution should be at room temperature. In the treatment of gastroenteropancreatic endocrine tumors, a sudden relapse of symptoms may occur in rare cases. In patients with insulinomas, treatment may increase the severity and duration of hypoglycemia. Significant fluctuations in the concentration of glucose in the blood can be reduced by more frequent administration of smaller doses. In patients receiving insulin, the need for it may decrease. With bleeding from varicose veins of the esophagus in patients with cirrhosis, the risk of developing insulin-dependent diabetes increases or the need for insulin changes with the existing diabetes, so a systematic control of the concentration of glucose in the blood is necessary.
