INTRODUCTION

CARNOSIN contains Adenosine which belongs to the group of medicines called Antiarrhythmics agents. It is used to treat arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) in both adults and in children. It helps in bringing back the heartbeat to normal in case of a heart condition called paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia or Wolff Parkinson-White Syndrome (fast heart rate caused due to abnormal electrical signals in the heart chambers). It can also be used to diagnose certain heart problems (such as the type of arrhythmia) during cardiac stress testing.

Before receiving CARNOSIN inform your doctor if you have any other heart problems other than arrhythmia (such as high or low blood pressure, prolonged QT interval, inflammation of heart lining, fluid build-up in heart, history of heart attack or heart transplantation surgery). You must also inform your doctor if you have low blood volume, epilepsy or any breathing difficulties such as asthma.

Consult your doctor before receiving CARNOSIN if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. During treatment with CARNOSIN your doctor will closely monitor your heart functions to avoid any unwanted side effects. Avoid consuming tea, coffee or cola at least for 12 hours before receiving CARNOSIN.

The common side effects of receiving CARNOSIN are nausea, dizziness, numbness, flushing or warmth and difficulty in breathing. Consult your doctor if any of these side effects trouble you.

USES OF CARNOSIN

  • Treats arrhythmia (such as paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT) or Wolf-Parkinson-White Syndrome)
  • Diagnoses certain heart problems (arrhythmia types) during cardiac stress testing

HOW CARNOSIN WORKS

CARNOSIN is an anti-arrhythmic medicine. It regulates the heart rate by blocking the generation of abnormal electrical signals in the heart. This normalizes your heart rate which therefore provides relief from the unpleasant symptoms of arrhythmia.

When used during stress testing, CARNOSIN improves blood supply to the heart by dilating the coronary arteries. This simulates an effect of a physical exercise (such as walking on a treadmill) in patients, which would help in diagnosing the problems with their heart functions.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

CARNOSIN will be given to you only by a doctor or a nurse into the vein as an intravenous injection. Your doctor will decide the correct dose, duration of therapy and frequency of administration depending upon your age, body weight and health condition.

  • signs of stroke (such as numbness or weakness in your face, arms or legs, confusion, eyesight impairment, difficulty in walking and difficulty in speaking)
  • signs of a heart attack (such as severe chest discomfort or chest pain that may travel up to your jaw, down your left arm or both arms, along with sweating, nausea and dizziness)
