quinine sulfate
Dosage Form: capsule
FULL PRESCRIBING INFORMATION
WARNING:

 Qualaquin® use for the treatment or prevention of nocturnal leg cramps may result in serious and life-threatening hematologic reactions, including thrombocytopenia and hemolytic uremic syndrome/thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (HUS/TTP). Chronic renal impairment associated with the development of TTP has been reported. The risk associated with Qualaquin use in the absence of evidence of its effectiveness in the treatment or prevention of nocturnal leg cramps outweighs any potential benefit (see WARNINGS).

Indications and Usage for Qualaquin

Qualaquin (quinine sulfate) is an antimalarial drug indicated only for treatment of uncomplicated Plasmodium falciparum malaria. Quinine sulfate has been shown to be effective in geographical regions where resistance to chloroquine has been documented [see Clinical Studies (14)].

Qualaquin oral capsules are not approved for:

  • Treatment of severe or complicated P. falciparum malaria.
  • Prevention of malaria.
  • Treatment or prevention of nocturnal leg cramps [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)].

Qualaquin Dosage and Administration

Treatment of Uncomplicated P. falciparum Malaria

For treatment of uncomplicated P. falciparum malaria in adults: Orally, 648 mg (two capsules) every 8 hours for 7 days [see Clinical Studies (14)].

Qualaquin should be taken with food to minimize gastric upset [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].

Pronunciation: SUX-i-nil-KOE-leen
Generic Name: Succinylcholine
Brand Name: Examples include Anectine and Quelicin

Quelicin has been associated with rapid muscle breakdown resulting in life-threatening heart rhythms, cardiac arrest, and death in children. These children appeared to be healthy, but were later found to have certain undiagnosed muscle problems (eg, Duchenne muscular dystrophy). Male children and children younger than 8 years old seem to be at a higher risk. Cases have also been reported in adolescents. Because it is hard to determine which children may be at risk, Quelicin should only be used in an emergency situation.


Quelicin is used for:

Relaxing muscles during surgery or when using a breathing machine (ventilator). It is also used to induce anesthesia or when a tube must be inserted in the windpipe. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Quelicin is a depolarizing muscle relaxant. It works by keeping muscles from contracting, which causes paralysis of the muscles in the face and those used to breathe and move.

Do NOT use Quelicin if:

  • you are allergic to any ingredient in Quelicin
  • you have recently had a severe burn, trauma, nerve damage, or an upper body movement injury
  • you have a personal or family history of muscle disease or malignant hyperthermia (a life-threatening state that includes high body temperatures)

Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.

Special Alerts:

[Posted 02/22/2011] ISSUE: FDA notified healthcare professionals that the Pregnancy section of drug labels for the entire class of antipsychotic drugs has been updated. The new drug labels now contain more and consistent information about the potential risk for abnormal muscle movements (extrapyramidal signs or EPS) and withdrawal symptoms in newborns whose mothers were treated with these drugs during the third trimester of pregnancy.

The symptoms of EPS and withdrawal in newborns may include agitation, abnormally increased or decreased muscle tone, tremor, sleepiness, severe difficulty breathing, and difficulty in feeding. In some newborns, the symptoms subside within hours or days and do not require specific treatment; other newborns may require longer hospital stays.

BACKGROUND: Antipsychotic drugs are used to treat symptoms of psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

RECOMMENDATION: Healthcare professionals should be aware of the effects of antipsychotic medications on newborns when the medications are used during pregnancy. Patients should not stop taking these medications if they become pregnant without talking to their healthcare professional, as abruptly stopping antipsychotic medicat
