Product Information

General Information:
AdvaCare is a GMP manufacturer of Tetanus Antitoxin injection.

Tetanus antitoxin injection is indicated to provide temporary passive immunity in the prevention and treatment against tetanus. This vaccine is not indicated for primary immunization.

Tetanus is a medical condition characterized by a prolonged contraction of skeletal muscle fibers.

Side Effects:
As with all pharmaceuticals, some unwanted effects can occur from the use of tetanus antitoxin injection. Always consult a doctor or healthcare professional for medical advice before use.

Common side effects include pain, swelling, or soreness at the injection site, mild fever, joint pain, muscle aches, nausea, and tiredness.

Seek medical attention if any of the following develop: symptoms of an allergic reaction such as difficulty in breathing or swallowing, hives, itching, reddening of the skin, swelling of eyes, face or inside of nose, unusual tiredness, or weakness. For a comprehensive list of all possible effects, consult your doctor. If any symptom persists or gets worse, or you notice any other symptom not listed, call your doctor immediately.

Additional Information

Always consult a medical doctor or patient care specialist before using tetanus antitoxin.

Indications and Usage

Tetanus antitoxin is indicated for booster injection only for individuals 7 years of age or older. For children under 7 years of age, tetanus injections are one of the routine vaccinations which is scheduled at 4-8 weeks, 15-20 months, and 5-6 years of age. Individuals 7 years of age or older are given tetanus and diphtheria toxoids.

Contraindications

Tetanus antitoxinis contraindicated in patients with developed hypersensitivity towards tetanus antitoxin. It is also contraindicated in any patients with anaphylactic reaction, febrile illnesses, or acute infection.

Precautions

Do not take tetanus antitoxin if:

  • You are allergic to tetanus antitoxin or other containing ingredients;
  • You have Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS);
  • You have history of systemic allergic or neurologic reactions.

Adequate immunization by routine boosters in non-pregnant women of child-bearing age can obviate the need to vaccinate women during pregnancy. Tetanus antitoxin injection does not affect the safety of mothers who are breastfeeding or their infants.

Administration and Dosage

Refer to your doctor or pharmacist for guidelines on tetanus antitoxin dose. Do not exceed what they advise. The usual tetanus antitoxin dose for an adult weighing up to 29.5kg is 3000 to 5000IU as a single dose intramuscularly. The usual tetanus antitoxin dose for children is 1500IU intramuscularly.

Tetanus antitoxin should not be used in the routine treatment of traumatic wounds. If the wound is extensive with a high risk of tetanus infection, antitoxin (preferably the human immunoglobulin) should be injected intramuscularly at the earliest possible moment after infliction of the injury. If equine antitoxin is used, the dose ranges from 1500 to 6000 units.

This preparation of tetanus antitoxin should not be used if human anti-tetanus immunoglobulin injection is available. It should be used with great caution if the patient is subject to allergic diseases such as asthma or infantile eczema, or exhibited an allergic reaction to any previous antiserum injection.

Interactions

Tetanus antitoxin injections may interact with medications such as blood thinners, corticosteroids, cancer chemotherapy, drugs that weaken the immune system, or other recent vaccinations.

Consult with your doctor about any medication you are taking before your treatment with tetanus antitoxin.
