Preparation and Administration Instructions

Do not administer INFUVITE PEDIATRIC as a direct, undiluted intravenous injection as it may cause dizziness, faintness, and possible tissue irritation.

INFUVITE PEDIATRIC Single Dose:
Use only in a suitable work area such as a laminar flow hood (or an equivalent clean air compounding area).
Add one weight-based dose of Vial 1 (1.2 mL, 2.6 mL or 4 mL) and one weight-based dose of Vial 2 (0.3 mL, 0.65 mL or 1 mL) directly to at least 100 mL of intravenous dextrose or saline solution.
Discard unused portion.
Visually inspect for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration.
After INFUVITE PEDIATRIC is diluted in an intravenous infusion, refrigerate the resulting solution unless it is to be used immediately, and use the solution within 24 hours after dilution.
Minimize exposure to light because some of the vitamins in INFUVITE PEDIATRIC, particularly A, D and riboflavin, are light sensitive.
INFUVITE PEDIATRIC Pharmacy Bulk Package:
Use only in a suitable work area such as a laminar flow hood (or an equivalent clean air compounding area).
Transfer the contents of Vial 2 (10 mL of solution) into the contents of Vial 1 (40 mL of solution). The mixed solution (50 mL) will provide thirty-three 1.5 mL single doses, fifteen 3.25 mL single doses or ten 5 mL single doses.
Each bulk vial closure shall be penetrated only one time with a suitable sterile transfer device or dispensing set that allows measured dispensing of the contents.
Once the closure system has been penetrated, complete dispensing from the pharmacy bulk vial should be completed within 4 hours. The mixed solution may be refrigerated and stored for up to 4 hours.
Discard unused portion.
Visually inspect for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration.
Add one dose directly to at least 100 mL of intravenous dextrose or saline solution for each patient.
After INFUVITE PEDIATRIC is diluted in an intravenous infusion, refrigerate the resulting solution unless it is to be used immediately, and use the solution within 24 hours after dilution.
Minimize exposure to light because some of the vitamins in INFUVITE PEDIATRIC, particularly A, D and riboflavin, are light sensitive.

Monitoring Vitamin Blood Levels

Blood vitamin concentrations should be monitored to ensure maintenance of adequate levels, particularly in patients receiving parenteral multivitamins as the only source of vitamins for long periods of time.

Drug Incompatibilities

INFUVITE PEDIATRIC is not physically compatible with moderately alkaline solutions such as a sodium bicarbonate solution and other alkaline drugs such as acetazolamide sodium, aminophylline, ampicillin sodium, tetracycline HCl and chlorothiazide sodium.
Folic acid is unstable in the presence of calcium salts such as calcium gluconate.
Vitamin A and thiamine in INFUVITE PEDIATRIC may react with bisulfite solutions such as sodium bisulfite or vitamin K bisulfite.
Do not add INFUVITE PEDIATRIC directly to intravenous fat emulsions.
Consult appropriate references for additional listings of physical and chemical compatibility of solutions and drugs with the vitamin infusion when needed. If incompatibilities are identified, avoid admixture or Y-site administration with vitamin solutions.
