DESMOPRESSIN ACETATE spray


Patient Information

Advise the patient to read the FDA-approved patient labeling (Patient Information and Instructions for Use)

Administration

  • Inform caregivers for pediatric patients that administration should be supervised to ensure the patient receives the prescribed dose.
  • Inform patients that the pump must be primed prior to first use and again if not used for greater than one week. Inform patients that the desmopressin acetate nasal solution 0.01% (nasal spray) bottle delivers 50 sprays of 10 mcg each following the initial 4 priming pumps.
  • Inform patients to discard any solution remaining after 50 sprays since the amount delivered thereafter may be substantially less than 10 mcg of drug.

Monitoring

  • Educate patients about the signs and symptoms of hyponatremia and advise them to contact a healthcare provider if such symptoms occur.
  • Discuss downward adjustment of fluid intake and monitoring of urine output with patients.
