PANHEMATIN Dosing

  • Attacks of porphyria may progress to a point where irreversible neuronal damage has occurred. PANHEMATIN therapy is intended to prevent an attack from reaching the critical stage of neuronal degeneration. PANHEMATIN is not effective in repairing neuronal damage.
  • PANHEMATIN is for intravenous use only. Dose is 1 to 4 mg/kg/day for 3-14 days based on the clinical signs.
  • Standard dose in clinical practice is 3 to 4 mg/kg/day.
  • Repeat dose in more severe cases no earlier than every 12 hours. Do not exceed 6 mg/kg in any 24-hour period.

PANHEMATIN Administration

  • Reconstitute PANHEMATIN by adding 48 mL of Sterile Water for Injection, USP.
  • Because PANHEMATIN contains no preservative and undergoes rapid chemical decomposition in solution, it must be reconstituted immediately before use.
  • Administer over a period of at least 30 minutes
