    Description

    Kenadion® is manufactured by Samarth. Injectable Kenadion® contains Vitamin K1 (Phytomenadione).

    Vitamin K is used to treat and prevent deficiencies of certain substances (blood clotting factors). These substances help to thicken your blood and stop bleeding (e.g., after an accidental cut or injury). Low levels of blood clotting factors increase the risk for unusual bleeding. This may be caused by certain medications (Warfarin) or medical conditions (e.g., obstructive jaundice).

    Thus, Kenadion® helps to treat and prevent unusual bleeding by increasing the body's production of blood clotting factors.

    Dosage

    Kenadion® is given by injection intravenously or intramuscularly. It may be taken with or without food.

    Intravenous use

    For over-anticoagulation:

    RDA for adults is 0.5-5 mg via slow IV injection.

    Dosage depends on INR and degree of hemorrhage.

    Intramuscular use

    For prophylaxis of Vitamin K deficiency bleeding in neonates:

    RDA for neonates is 0.5-1 mg, given as a single dose via IM injection.

    Alternatively, 2 mg may be given orally, followed by a 2nd dose of 2 mg after 4-7 days.

    Parenteral use

    For Vitamin K deficiency bleeding in neonates:

    RDA for infants: 1 mg by IV/IM/SC injection, further doses may be given if necessary.

    If this medication is given into a vein, it should be injected very slowly (no more than 1 milligram per minute) to reduce the risk of serious side effects.

    Missing a dose

    If you miss a dose you should take it as soon as you remember about your missing. If it is the time for the next dose you should continue your regular dosing schedule. Do not exceed the doctor's recommended dose.

    Overdose

    If an overdose occurs and you are feeling unwell, you should seek emergency medical attention or contact your healthcare provider immediately.

    Storage

    Store at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F) and away from excess moisture and heat. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of the reach of children.
