Description

Amino Acid is used as a source of amino acids for patients requiring parenteral nutrition (PN) when oral or enteral nutrition is not possible, insufficient, or contraindicated. It may be used to treat negative nitrogen balance in patients.

Dosage and Side Effects

The approximate daily dose of amino acids to be used with dextrose or with dextrose and intravenous fat emulsion will typically depend upon the metabolic status and clinical response of the patient as therapy proceeds. Doses which get the nitrogen equilibrium or positive balance are the most desirable. The dosage of amino acid injection on the first day needs to be approximately half the anticipated optimal dosage and needs to be increased moderately for minimizing glycosuria; similarly, withdrawal needs to be accomplished moderately in order to avoid rebound hypoglycemia.

Recommended Dosage in Adults: The recommended daily dosage of Amino Acid for stable patients and for Critically Ill Patients is 8 to 10 mL/kg/day and 15 to 20 mL/kg/day respectively.

Recommended Dosage in Pediatric Patients: The recommended dosage of Amino Acid for preterm and term infants aged less than 1 month, pediatric patients 1 month to less than 1 year of age, pediatric patients 1 to 10 years of age, and pediatric patients aged greater than 10 to less than 17 years are 30 to 40 mL/kg/day, 20 to 30 mL/kg/day, 10 to 20 mL/kg/day, and 8 to 15 mL/kg/day respectively.

The most commonly reported side effects due to amino acid injection may include: hypersensitivity reactions infection, pulmonary vascular emboli, refeeding syndrome, hyperglycemia and hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state, vein thrombosis, hyperammonemia, elevated liver function tests, electrolyte imbalances, and hypervolemia.

Warning and Precautions

  • Pulmonary vascular precipitates causing pulmonary vascular emboli and pulmonary distress have occurred in patients receiving PN, including amino acid. In case signs of pulmonary distress appear, stop the infusion and start a medical evaluation.
  • Hypersensitivity reactions including anaphylaxis have been noted with PN solutions containing amino acids. Stop the infusion promptly and treat the patient accordingly if any signs/symptoms of a hypersensitivity reaction emerge.
  • Refeeding critically malnourished patients may result in refeeding syndrome, distinguished by the intracellular shift of phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium as the patient becomes anabolic. Fluid retention and thiamine deficiency may also develop. For the prevention of these complications, monitor severely undernourished patients and gradually increase nutrient intakes.
  • While on treatment with amino acid generic, monitor patients for signs/symptoms (including fever and chills) of early infections, including laboratory test results (leukocytosis and hyperglycemia) and frequent assessment of the parenteral access device and insertion site for redness, edema, and discharge.
  • Use of PN solutions containing dextrose in diabetes mellitus patients, impaired glucose tolerance may worsen hyperglycemia. Evaluate blood glucose levels and treat hyperglycemia to maintain optimum levels while using PN solutions containing dextrose. Insulin may be used or adjusted for maintaining optimal blood glucose levels during use of PN solutions containing dextrose.
  • During treatment with injection amino acid, liver function parameters and ammonia levels need to be monitored. Patients with signs of hepatobiliary disorders need to be assessed early by a health specialist knowledgeable in liver diseases in order to detect possible causative and contributory factors, and probable therapeutic and prophylactic interventions.
  • Monitor fluid and electrolyte status, blood glucose, serum osmolarity, liver and kidney function, blood count and coagulation parameters throughout treatment. In case electrolyte levels are severely elevated, stop PN containing amino acid until levels have been corrected.
  • Patients with renal impairment, such as prerenal azotemia, protein-losing nephropathy, and renal obstruction may be at higher risk of electrolyte and fluid volume imbalance. Patients with pulmonary congestion and cardiac insufficiency are susceptible to surplus fluid accumulation. Renal function parameters should be monitored.
