Re-Covr Injection Caution
Central nervous system stimulation in the form of hyperexcitability, nervousness and muscle tremors lasting up to 20 minutes have been noted in horses, particularly following intravenous administration; therefore, only the intramuscular route of administration should be used in horses.
Overdosage of tripelennamine hydrochloride may give rise to excitement, ataxia and convulsions.
Depression of the central nervous system and incoordination may occur when the drug is used at therapeutic dose levels.
Disturbances in gastrointestinal function may occur in some instances.
While poisonous snake bites have been treated with antihistaminic drugs, other conjunctive therapy is required because of toxic reactions associated with the protein complex of venom.
