Drug Description

Generic Kemadrin (procyclidine hydrochloride) is an antispasmodic compound of comparatively low toxicity. It relaxes smooth muscle, which prevents muscle spasms. Procyclidine hydrochloride is a white crystalline material. It comes in tablet form for oral use. Each tablet has 5 mg procyclidine hydrochloride as well as the inactive ingredients such as lactose, corn, potato starch, and magnesium stearate.

Indication

Kemadrin is indicated to treat Parkinson disease.

Contraindications

Procyclidine hydrochloride is contraindicated in angle-closure glaucoma although simple type glaucomas do not appear to be adversely affected. This drug also should be avoided in case you have allergy to any component in Kemadrin.

Dosage and Administration

The dose of the drug to treat Parkinsonism will vary depending on the age of the patient, the etiology of the disease, and individual reaction.

Usually, a higher dosage is recommended for younger and postencephalitic patients compared to older patients and those with arteriosclerosis.

An initial dose of 2.5 mg three times daily after meals is suggested to treat procyclidine hydrochloride. The dose may be slowly raised to 5 mg three times a day and occasionally 5 mg given before retiring.

Patient, who cannot tolerate a bedtime dose of the drug, may need dosage adjustment.

Patients, who are receiving other drugs and want to use procyclidine hydrochloride, can initially take 2.5 mg three times a day for all or part of the original drug. The dose may be increased as required while correspondingly omitting or decreasing the other drug.

To treat symptoms of extrapyramidal dysfunction caused by tranquilizer medicines during the treatment of mental disorders, the dosage of procyclidine hydrochloride will differ based on the harshness of side effects related to tranquilizer administration.

An initial daily dosage of 2.5 mg can be taken three times daily. It may be raised by 2.5 mg daily increments. The maximum dose of 10 to 20 mg daily can be used.

Kemadrin need to be taken with food or right away after finishing a meal.
