Anti Snake Injection consists of an important enzyme that is obtained from venomous snakes. It is used as a drug that helps in the coagulation of blood, in order to prevent fatal risks of hemorrhages. Enzymes present in the drug convert the fibrinogen present in the body into fibrin by splitting off the serine group present in the fibrinogen molecules. The fibrin then combines with blood platelets to form hemostatic clots that stop blood flow and prevent hemorrhages.
Usually used to stop bleeding after surgeries it can causes side effects like anaphylactic shock in case of severe allergic reaction by the body’s immune system. While these are the possible side effects that can happen, their occurrence is extremely rare. The risk of these side effects however increases in case you have certain health conditions or are using health supplements, over the counter drugs like Reserpine, Sulfadimethoxine, etc. The drug is contraindicated in case of thrombotic or embolic episodes where blood clots may travel to the brain via the blood stream. Before taking Anti Snake Injection you must therefore consult with a qualified doctor to prevent the possibility of any complications, especially so if you are suffering from any pre existing disease or are pregnant, planning a pregnancy.
