Arm Q Injection

Manufacturer: Sanjivani Parenteral Ltd
Medicine composition: Quinine
Prescription vs.OTC: Prescription by Doctor required

Arm Q Injection is used in the treatment of malaria, a disease which occurs as a result of mosquito bites. The disease occurs because of malaria parasites that enter the human body as a result of the mosquito bite. These parasites attack the liver and the red blood cells of the body. Arm Q Injection is prescribed by doctors as it kills malaria parasites that invade the red blood cells. Thus, Arm Q Injection is a part of a group of medicines which are known as antimalarials. Arm Q Injection effectively treats malaria, but does not prevent the onset of the disease.

The drug should be taken as per the instructions given by a doctor. It is meant for oral consumption, and it is generally recommended that patients should take it along with food, so as to reduce the chances of a stomach upset. The drug is generally prescribed for about 3-7 days and should be taken after every 8 hours. The dosage and time period of consumption of drug is usually dependent on the severity of your condition and the country you live in. In case of children the dosage is prescribed as per their weight.

Make sure that you do not stop the medicine half way. It is best that you finish the course of the medicine in order to be fully cured of the infection. If you do not complete the prescribed course, it may complicate your condition further.

In case any of these side effects persist for a long period of time or become increasingly severe, get in touch with your doctor immediately. Very few patients who are prescribed Arm Q Injection suffer from severe side effects like hemolytic anemia, liver or kidney problems, excessive weakness, severe abdominal pain and yellowing of the skin. Medical help should be sought immediately if any of the above rare side effects are experienced.
