Vasostrict (Vasopressin) is a prescription medication used for the treatment of diabetes insipidus. This condition is caused by a lack of a naturally occurring pituitary hormone in the body. This medication is also used to treat or prevent certain conditions of the stomach after surgery or during abdominal x-rays. Vasopressin is also used to treat cardiac arrest. Vasopressin is a man-made form of the “anti-diuretic hormone” that is normally secreted by the pituitary gland. This medication acts on the kidneys and blood vessels. Vasopressin works by preventing loss of water from the body by reducing urine output and helping kidneys reabsorb water into the body. This medication also raises blood pressure by narrowing blood vessels. Vasostrict is injected into a muscle or under the skin, or into a vein through an IV. The dose of Vasopressin is determined by the patient’s condition and response to the medication.

Customer Precautions

You should not use Vasostrict if you are allergic to Vasopressin or if you have any other drug allergies. Before you start using this medication, talk to your doctor about your medical history and about all the medications you take including OTC and herbal medications. This medication may produce water intoxication. The early signs of drowsiness, listlessness and headaches should be recognized to prevent terminal coma and convulsions. Vasopressin should be used cautiously if you have any other conditions such as epilepsy, migraine, asthma, heart failure or any other condition in which a rapid addition to extracellular water may produce hazard for an already overburdened system. It is unknown how this medication affects pregnant or nursing mothers. Nursing mothers are advised to pump and discard breast milk for 1.5 hours after receiving Vasopressin to minimize any exposure to the baby.
