Dopamine Injection (Dopamine Hydrochloride Injection) - Drug Interactions, Contraindications, Overdosage, etc

 
 



DRUG INTERACTIONS

DOPAMINE INJECTION drug label information in our database does not contain a dedicated section on drug interactions. Please check subsections of WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS as well as other sources.

OVERDOSAGE

In the case of accidental overdosage, as evidenced by excessive blood pressure elevation, reduce rate of infusion, or temporarily discontinue administration of the drug until patient’s condition stabilizes. Since dopamine’s duration of action is quite short, no additional remedial measures are usually necessary. If these measures fail to stabilize the patient’s condition, consider using an alpha-adrenergic blocking agent (e.g., phentolamine).

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Dopamine hydrochloride should not be used in patients with pheochromocytoma.

Dopamine should not be administered in the presence of uncorrected tachyarrhythmias or ventricular fibrillation.
