A sterile aqueous solution of soluble salts of the volatile bases from Sarraceniaceae (Pitcher Plant). Benzyl Alcohol 0.75%.
The painful syndromes most commonly encountered in general practice which are relieved by SARAPIN treatment are as follows:
Brachial Plexus Neuralgia
These and allied conditions may be treated with success in a majority of cases by nerve block or local infiltration:
Paravertebral -- Careful localization of the zone of tenderness permits a determination of the corresponding trunk levels to be injected.
Perineural -- In some instances, as in sciatica, the affected nerve can be injected at a site distant from its origin.
Local Infiltration -- Multiple injections throughout an area of tenderness provide for diffusion into all the affected parts.
Cervical ..... 2-3 ml
Dorsal ..... 5-10 ml
Lumbar ..... 5-10 ml
Sacral ..... 3-5 ml
Caudal Canal ..... 10 ml
Sciatic Nerve ..... 10 ml
Local Infiltration ..... 5-10 ml
Withdraw plunger of syringe to make sure the needle point is not in a blood vessel.
Procedure should be gentle and unhurried.
SARAPIN is intended only for professional use. Its successful employment depends upon a thorough knowledge of the anatomy involved.
Patients should be maintained in a recumbent position for 10 to 15 minutes following injection. A local sensation is to be expected, limited to the distribution of the nerve injected, and usually appearing as a temporary feeling of heaviness, although some cases will feel heat or a transitory aggravation of symptoms.
SARAPIN is non-toxic, has no side effects other than above and is contraindicated only in areas of local infection.
