Ingredients

  • DESMOPRESSIN 0.01% w/v

How do I take/use this medicine?

Use Desmopressin exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not use more or less than instructed by your doctor.

Desmopressin must be used regularly for it to be effective. Continue using it even when you feel better. Do not stop using it unless instructed by your doctor.

Desmopressin is available as a nasal liquid or nasal spray.

Your doctor will advise you about how much and how often to use Desmopressin nasal liquid or nasal spray.

Make sure you know how to use your nasal spray or liquid. If you need help with understanding the instructions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Do not share your nasal spray or liquid with others as it could spread infection.

Inform your doctor if you have any of these conditions or any other illnesses:

- high blood pressure
- heart disease
- cystic fibrosis
- bleeding disorders
- nasal infection, stuffy or runny nose
- conditions which cause water and salt imbalance in your body
- any mood or psychiatric conditions

Ask your doctor about how to manage your medicine when you have an episode of vomiting, diarrhoea, fever or infection.

Desmopressin can also be used to treat certain bleeding disorders.

Desmopressin may also be used to test the ability of the body to dissolve blood clots that have formed.
