Uses
Remifentanil is a pain medication used before and/or during surgery or other procedures requiring anesthesia. Ultiva may also be used for pain control after surgery under close supervision of a doctor or other medical (pain) specialist.


Storage
  • Store the vials between 36 and 77 degrees F (2 and 25 degrees C) away from light and moisture.
  • Do not freeze.
  • After mixing and dilution in correct IV fluids (consult your pharmacist for details), Ultiva is stable at room temperature for 4 hours.
  • Discard any unused liquid.


Overdose
  • If overdose is suspected, contact your local poison control center or emergency room immediately.
  • Symptoms of overdose may include trouble breathing, seizures, severe dizziness, or fast heartbeat.

How To Use
  • Ultiva is injected into a vein (slow IV injection or continuous infusion) by medical professionals specifically trained in the use of anesthetic drugs.
  • Remifentanil should be used only in a hospital or clinical setting equipped with appropriate monitoring and life-support equipment.
  • The dosage is based on the patient s medical condition and response to the medication.
  • This product contains glycine and is not intended for epidural or intrathecal injection.
  • Use Ultiva exactly as prescribed.
  • Do not increase your dose, use it more frequently, or use it for a longer period of time than prescribed because Ultiva can be habit-forming.
  • Also, if used for an extended period of time, do not suddenly stop using Ultiva without your doctor s approval.
  • Before using, check this product visually for particles or discoloration.
  • If either is present, do not use the liquid.
  • Learn how to store and discard needles and medical supplies safely.
  • Consult your pharmacist.
  • Learn all mixing, dilution, and administration/usage instructions in the product package and ask your doctor or pharmacist if you are unclear about any of the information.

Side Effects
  • Dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, shivering, or headache may occur.
  • If any of these effects persist or worsen, contact your doctor or pharmacist promptly.
  • Tell your doctor immediately if any of these serious side effects occur: slow or irregular heartbeat, fever, muscle or chest tightness, trouble breathing, seizures.
  • An allergic reaction to Ultiva is unlikely, but seek immediate medical attention if it occurs.
  • Symptoms of an allergic reaction include: rash, itching, swelling, trouble breathing.
  • If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Precautions
  • Tell your doctor your medical history, especially of: head injury, lung disease (e.g., asthma, emphysema), any allergies you may have (especially to codeine or fentanyl).
  • Ultiva may make you dizzy or drowsy; use caution engaging in activities requiring alertness such as driving or using machinery until the dizziness or drowsiness caused by the anesthesia or Ultiva is no longer present.
  • Avoid alcoholic beverages because they can intensify the dizziness or drowsiness effects of Ultiva.
  • Caution is advised when using Ultiva in the elderly because they may be more sensitive to the effects of Ultiva.
  • Caution is advised when using Ultiva in patients who are very overweight.
  • Ultiva should be used only when clearly needed during pregnancy.

  • Tell your doctor if you take any drowsiness-causing medication, such as: drugs for sleep, sedatives, tranquilizers, anti-anxiety drugs (e.g., diazepam), narcotic pain relievers (e.g., codeine), psychiatric medicines (e.g., phenothiazines or tricyclics), anti- seizure drugs (e.g., carbamazepine), muscle relaxants, antihistamines that cause drowsiness (e.g., diphenhydramine).
  • Check the labels on all your medicines (e.g., cough-and-cold products) because they may contain drowsiness-causing ingredients.
