CONTRAINDICATIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF USE:
Acetylpromazine has adrenolytic actions by blocking alpha receptors, thus reversing the pressor effect of adrenaline, which acts only on beta receptors.
Therefore, adrenaline should not be used as a pressor amine, but norepinephrine or phenylephrine, which only act on alpha receptors.
In animals with liver disease, it is advisable to use with caution, since the ACEPROMAZINE HAMPTON component is degraded in the liver.
It can cause minor cardiac arrhythmias. In animals with a history of cardiac disorders, it is advisable to use with caution.
In animals with heart disease it can increase their intensity, so it is advisable to use it with caution as well as in senile animals.
Intravenously, apply slowly.
In epileptic animals it can cause seizures. Its use is not recommended. Like all phenothiazine derivatives, it enhances the sensitivity of organophosphorous compounds and that of procaine hydrochloride.
Therefore, the simultaneous use with them should be avoided.
Occasionally adult stallions may suffer irreversible penile prolapse, which must be manually replaced.
