Desmopressin 0.2mg tablets, Pack of 30

Desmopressin 0.2mg tablets are used to treat disorders characterized by excessive urination and thirst. In patients with vasopressin-sensitive cranial diabetes insipidus, desmopressin helps to control the amount of urine produced. For post-hypophysectomy patients, it helps to regulate the body’s response to thirst. Finally, primary nocturnal enuresis sufferers will find that desmopressin effectively reduces or stops bed-wetting episodes.

Desmopressin 0.2mg (200mcg) tablets are used for the treatment of:

  • vasopressin-sensitive cranial diabetes insipidus (a disease-causing the passing of excessive urine because not enough ADH [a hormone] is produced). Vasopressin-sensitive means that the disease can be treated with Desmopressin.
  • post-hypophysectomy polyuria/polydipsia (frequent urination or excessive drinking following the removal of the pituitary gland).
  • primary nocturnal enuresis (bed-wetting in a person who has never developed night-time bladder control).

How To Use

How To Use Desmopressin 0.2mg Tablets

Dosage

Desmopressin tablets are taken by mouth.

Always take Desmopressin exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.

Treatment of Diabetes Insipidus:

The starting dose in adults and children is 100 micrograms, three times daily. The dose should then be adjusted according to the patient’s response.

For most patients, the adjusted dose is 100 to 200 micrograms, three times daily.

Post-hypophysectomy polyuria/polydipsia:

The dose of Desmopressin depends on the concentration of the urine.

Primary nocturnal enuresis:

The usual dose for children (from 5 years of age) and adults (up to 65 years of age) is 200 micrograms at bedtime. If necessary, your doctor may increase the dose to 400 micrograms.

The need for continued treatment should be reassessed after 3 months by stopping treatment with Desmopressin for at least one week.

If it appears that Desmopressin is not having an effect at low doses, your doctor may tell you not to take the tablets with food.

If you take more Desmopressin than you should

Go to the accident and emergency department at the nearest hospital straight away. Take the Desmopressin pack with you.

Bed Wetting

If you are being treated with Desmopressin for bed-wetting, your fluid intake must be limited from 1 hour before until 8 hours after taking the tablets. You should avoid drinking water while swimming and you should stop taking Desmopressin if you are vomiting or have diarrhoea until your fluid balance is back to normal.

Fluid/Salt Disorder

You must be careful not to drink too much fluid if you have a condition that causes a fluid or salt disorder or if you are at risk of increased intracranial pressure (pressure on the brain).

It is important to monitor body weight and blood pressure during treatment with Desmopressin.

Taking other medicines

Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking, or have recently taken, any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription. This is especially important of the following substances as they may interact with your Desmopressin tablets:

  • chlorpromazine (for mental illness)
  • carbamazepine (for epilepsy)
  • non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen
  • loperamide (for diarrhoea)

 

It may still be all right for you to be given Desmopressin and your doctor will be able to decide what is suitable for you.

Pregnancy and breast-feeding

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Your doctor may want to monitor your blood pressure if you are pregnant.

Driving and using machines

Desmopressin has no effect on driving or using machines.
