Hyponatraemia (low blood sodium levels) Tolvaptan Tolvasca-15

Uses
Tolvasca-15 (Tolvaptan) is a vasopressin receptor antagonist which works by regulating the sodium and water levels in the body. It achieves this by reducing the level of the hormone responsible for controlling the balance of water and sodium in the body. Excessively high levels of this hormone may lead to fluid retention and low levels of sodium. Patients suffering from hyponatraemia (low sodium blood levels) caused by heart failure, disease of the liver or an imbalance of hormones are often prescribed this drug to treat their condition.

Dosage and Administration
You must see your doctor for a medical consultation before you can take Tolvasca-15 (Tolvaptan). After examining you, your doctor will determine the correct and safe dosage required. It may be necessary to start treatment in a hospital. Adult patients treating hyponatraemia are sometimes prescribed an initial dose of 15mg taken once per day (with or without food). After at least 24 hours, the prescribing doctor may direct the patient to take 30mg once per day. The maximum prescribed dosage is usually 60mg per day. Your doctor will monitor your condition carefully at the beginning of treatment, and when your dosage is being adjusted. You may also be instructed to avoid fluid restriction during the initial 24 hours of treatment.

See your doctor straight away if this occurs. Stop taking this medicine and seek immediate medical attention if you notice fainting, bloody stools, coughing up blood or any other severe reactions.
