Dosage of Deviry in details

The dose of a drug and dosage of the drug are two different terminologies. Dose is defined as the quantity or amount of medicine given by the doctor or taken by the patient at a given period. Dosage is the regimen prescribed by the doctor about how many days and how many times per day the drug is to be taken in specified dose by the patient. The dose is expressed in mg for tablets or gm, micro gm sometimes, ml for syrups or drops for kids syrups. The dose is not fixed for a drug for all conditions, and it changes according to the condition or a disease. It also changes on the age of the patient.

Prevention of Pregnancy: The recommended dose is 150 mg of Deviry contraceptive injection every 3 months (13 weeks) administered by deep IM injection in the gluteal or deltoid muscle. Deviry should not be used as a long-term birth control method (ie, >2 years) unless other birth control methods are considered inadequate. Dosage does not need to be adjusted for body weight.

To ensure the patient is not pregnant at the time of the 1st injection, the 1st injection should be given only during the first 5 days of a normal menstrual period; only within the first 5-days postpartum if not breastfeeding; and if exclusively breastfeeding, only at the 6th postpartum week. If the time interval between injections is >13 weeks, the physician should determine that the patient is not pregnant before administering the drug. The efficacy of Deviry contraceptive injection depends on adherence to the dosage schedule of administration.

Switching from Other Methods of Contraception: When switching from other contraceptive methods, Deviry should be given in a manner that ensures continuous contraceptive coverage based upon the mechanism of action of both methods (eg, patients switching from oral contraceptives should have their 1st injection of Deviry on the day after the last active tablet or at the latest, on the day following the final inactive tablet).

Administration: Deviry contraceptive injection should be shaken just before use to ensure that the dose being administered represents a uniform suspension.

Suppose if you are taking a drug Deviry, it may have interactions with specific foods and specific medications. It will not interact with all foods and medications. The interactions vary from drug to drug. You need to be aware of interactions of the medicine you take. Most medications may interact with alcohol, tobacco, so be cautious.

Changes in Contraceptive Effectiveness Associated with Co-Administration of Other Products: If a woman on hormonal contraceptives takes a drug or herbal product that induces enzymes, including CYP3A4, that metabolize contraceptive hormones, counsel her to use additional contraception or a different method of contraception. Drugs or herbal products that induce such enzymes may decrease the plasma concentrations of contraceptive hormones, and may decrease the effectiveness of hormonal contraceptives.

Some drugs or herbal products that may decrease the effectiveness of hormonal contraceptives include barbiturates, bosentan, carbamazepine, felbamate, griseofulvin, oxcarbazepine, phenytoin, rifampin, St. John’s wort, and topiramate.

HIV-Protease Inhibitors and Non-Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors (NNRTIs): Significant changes (increase or decrease) in the plasma levels of progestin have been noted in some cases of co-administration of HIV-protease inhibitors. Significant changes (increase or decrease) in the plasma levels of the progestin have been noted in some cases of co-administration with NNRTIs.

Antibiotics: There have been reports of pregnancy while taking hormonal contraceptives and antibiotics, but clinical pharmacokinetic studies have not shown consistent effects of antibiotics on plasma concentrations of synthetic steroids.

Consult the labeling of all concurrently-used drugs to obtain further information about interactions with hormonal contraceptives or the potential for enzyme alterations.

Laboratory Test Interactions: The pathologist should be advised of progestin therapy when relevant specimens are submitted.

The following laboratory tests may be affected by progestins including Deviry contraceptive injection:

Plasma and urinary steroid levels are decreased (eg, progesterone, estradiol, pregnanediol, testosterone, cortisol).

Gonadotropin levels are decreased.

Sex-hormone binding globulin concentrations are decreased.

Protein-bound iodine and butanol extractable protein-bound iodine may increase. T3-uptake values may decrease.

Coagulation test values for prothrombin (Factor II) and Factors VII, VIII, IX and X may increase.

Sulfobromophthalein and other liver function test values may be increased.

The effects of Deviry on lipid metabolism are inconsistent. Both increases and decreases in total cholesterol, triglycerides, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol have been observed in studies.
