DDAVP DESMOPRESSIN Solution for injection (2011)
Active ingredients: Desmopressin
Product Name and Form
Solution for injection.
Qualitative and Quantitative Composition
Each 1ml ampoule contains Desmopressin acetate 4 micrograms per ml.
Desmopressin is a structural analogue of vasopressin in which the antidiuretic activity has been enhanced by the order of 10, while the vasopressor effect has been reduced by the order of 1500. The clinical advantage of this highly changed ratio of antidiuretic to vasopressor effect is that clinically active antidiuretic doses are far below the threshold for a vasopressor effect.
