When and How to Take Brevibloc

Some general considerations include the following:
  • Brevibloc comes in injectable form. It is given by IV.
  • Brevibloc is usually used only temporarily. If long-term treatment is required, the patient should be switched to a different medication.
  • As with many IV medications, healthcare providers must take care to prevent the medication from leaking outside of a vein, as it can be very irritating and damaging to the tissues.
  • Healthcare providers must be very careful when making IVs with this medication. Deaths have resulted from inaccurately diluting the medication (usually from accidentally making the concentration too high).

Dosing Information

The dose of Brevibloc that your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, including:
  • The medical condition being treated
  • The urgency of the situation
  • Your weight
  • How you respond to the medication
  • Other medications you are taking
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
As always, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.

As with any medicine, Brevibloc may cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects (most people actually tolerate it quite well). If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
Some of the most common side effects include, but are not limited to:
