Description

A sterile aqueous solution of soluble salts of the volatile bases from Sarraceniaceae (Pitcher Plant).

Actions

The painful syndromes most commonly encountered in general practice which are relieved by SARAPIN® treatment are as follows:

Sciatic Pain
Intercostal Neuralgia
Alcoholic Neuritis
Occipital Neuritis
Brachial Plexus Neuralgia
Meralgia Paresthetica
Lumbar Neuralgia
Trigeminal Neuralgia

Administration

These and allied conditions may be treated with success in a majority of cases by nerve block or local infiltration:

Paravertebral – Careful localization of the zone of tenderness permits a determination of the corresponding trunk levels to be injected.

Perineural – In some instances, as in sciatica, the affected nerve can be injected at a site distant from its origin.

Local Infiltration – Multiple injections throughout an area of tenderness provide for diffusion into all the affected parts.

Dosage

Paravertebral Injections

Cervical 2-3 ml
Dorsal 5-10 ml
Lumbar 5-10 ml
Sacral 3-5 ml
Caudal Canal 10 ml
Sciatic Nerve 10 ml
Local Infiltration 5-10 ml

Warning

Withdraw plunger of syringe to make sure the needle point is not in a blood vessel.

Precautions

Procedure should be gentle and unhurried.

Injection should be made whenever possible, through a procaine wheal.

SARAPIN® is intended only for professional use. Its successful employment depends upon a thorough knowledge of the anatomy involved.

Adverse Reactions to SARAPIN

Patient should be maintained in a recumbent position for 10 to 15 minutes following injection. A local sensation is to be expected, limited to the distribution of the nerve injected, and usually appearing as a temporary feeling of heaviness, although some cases will feel heat or a transitory aggravation of symptoms.

Contraindications

SARAPIN® is non-toxic, has no side effects other than above and is contraindicated only in areas of local inflammation.
