Dopamine

Prescription vs.OTC: Prescription by Doctor required

Dopamine is used to treat conditions such as trauma, endotoxic septicemia, renal failure, open-heart surgery, and chronic cardiac decompensation. It can also be used as adjunct treatment to correct hemodynamic imbalances present in the shock syndrome due to myocardial infarction. Dopamine works by binding to alpha-1 and beta-1 adrenergic receptors, thus increasing cardiac output and systemic vascular resistance.

Do not use Dopamine if you are allergic to any of the ingredients present in it, or if you are pregnant and/or breastfeeding. Before using Dopamine tell your doctor if you are using any prescription drugs, non-prescription drugs, or other herbal and dietary pills and supplements, if you have recently had any surgeries, or have any upcoming surgeries scheduled, or if you have a history of occlusive vascular disease. Also let your doctor know your history of medical problems, pre-existing diseases and current health conditions.

Dopamine should be taken in doses prescribed by the doctor. Dosage depends on conditions such as medical condition, diet, age, and counteraction with other medicines.

Dopamine has side effects such as palpitations, anginal pain, tachycardia, ectopic beats, atrial fibrillation, and ventricular arrhythmia.
