The white, freeze-dried powder contains terlipressin acetate. Glypressin Injection is used in the treatment of bleeding oesophageal varices. Bleeding oesophageal varices are enlarged blood vessels that form in the stomach or oesophagus as a complication of liver disease. They may burst and bleed and this is a serious and life-threatening condition. When injected into the bloodstream, the active ingredient, terlipressin acetate is broken down to release a substance called lysine vasopressin.
This acts on the walls of the blood vessels, causing them to narrow and restrict the blood flow to the affected veins so that bleeding is reduced. If any of the above apply to you or you are not sure talk to your doctor or nurse before you are given Glypressin.
Taking with other medicines Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription. The usual dose of Glypressin Injection in acute bleeding from oesophageal varices is 2mg followed by 1 or 2 mg every 4 to 6 hours until bleeding is controlled, up to a maximum of 48 hours. During treatment, your blood pressure, serum sodium and potassium and fluid balance will normally be monitored constantly.
