Muro-128 Uses, Dosage, Side Effects, Food Interaction and all others data.

Muro-128 is the major extracellular cation. It is important in electrolyte and fluid balance, osmotic pressure control and water distribution as it restores sodium ions. It is used as a source of electrolytes and water for hydration, treatment of metabolic acidosis, priming solution in haemodialysis and treatment of hyperosmolar diabetes. It is also used as diluents for infusion of compatible drug additives.

Sodium, the major cation of the extracellular fluid, functions primarily in the control of water distribution, fluid balance, and osmotic pressure of body fluids. Sodium is also associated with chloride and bicarbonate in the regulation of the acid-base equilibrium of body fluid.Chloride, the major extracellular anion, closely follows the metabolism of sodium, and changes in the acid-base balance of the body are reflected by changes in the chloride concentration.

Sodium Chloride Nasal Drops is used for dry nasal membranes including dry nose resulting from cold and allergy medications. It moistens dry nasal passages from dry climates or from airplane travel, may help dissolve mucus from study noses and clears the nose after surgery. This sterile saline solution is also used to cleanse various parts of the body (wounds, body cavities) and medical equipment (e.g., bandages, catheters, drainage tubes). It is also used as a mixing solution (diluent) for other medications used to irrigate the body (e.g., bacitracin, polymyxin).

Muro-128 is also used to associated treatment for these conditions: Allergic Rhinitis (AR), Corneal Edema, Dehydration, Dehydration Hypertonic, Fluid Loss, Hemodilution, Hypertension Intracranial, Hypokalemia, Hyponatremia, Hypotonic Dehydration, Hypovolaemia, Increased Intra Ocular Pressure (IOP), Inflammation of the Nasal Mucosa, Isotonic Dehydration, Metabolic Acidosis, Nasal Congestion, Nasal irritation, Oliguria caused by Acute Renal Failure (ARF), Potassium deficiency, Sinusitis, Skin Irritation, Sodium Depletion, Dryness of the nose, Hypochloremic state, Mild Metabolic acidosis, Mild, moderate Metabolic Acidosis, Electrolyte replacement, Fluid replacement therapy, Heart-Lung-Machine, Oral rehydration therapy, Parenteral Nutrition, Parenteral rehydration therapy, Peritoneal dialysis therapy, Plasma Volume Replacement, Regional Citrate Anticoagulation (RCA), Renal Replacement Therapies, Urine alkalinization therapy, Wound irrigation therapy, Ear wax removal, Fluid and electrolyte maintenance therapy, Increased renal excretion of toxic substances, Maintenance source of fluid and electrolytes, Parenteral drug administration, Reducing brain mass

How Muro-128 works

Sodium and chloride — major electrolytes of the fluid compartment outside of cells (i.e., extracellular) — work together to control extracellular volume and blood pressure. Disturbances in sodium concentrations in the extracellular fluid are associated with disorders of water balance.


Muro-128 dosage

Infants, children & adults: 2-6 drops into each nostril as needed daily

Use in Children: Safe for pediatrics

Side Effects

No side Effects are expected to occur. However stinging, sneezing, increased nasal discharge, or salty taste may occur in some cases.


The rare inadvertent intravascular administration or rapid intravascular absorption of hypertonic sodium chloride can cause a shift of tissue fluids into the vascular bed, resulting in hypervolemia, electrolyte disturbances, circulatory failure, pulmonary embolism, or augmented hypertension.

Food Interaction

No interactions found.

Volume of Distribution

The volume of distribution is 0.64 L/kg.

Elimination Route

Absorption of sodium in the small intestine plays an important role in the absorption of chloride, amino acids, glucose, and water. Chloride, in the form of hydrochloric acid (HCl), is also an important component of gastric juice, which aids the digestion and absorption of many nutrients.

Half Life

17 minutes

Elimination Route

Substantially excreted by the kidneys.

Pregnancy & Breastfeeding use

It is unknown if this medication passes into breast milk. Consult with your doctor before breast-feeding.


Tell your doctor about your medical history, especially of heart problems (e.g., congestive heart failure), lung problems (pulmonary edema), kidney problems, low levels of potassium (hypokalemia), high levels of sodium (hypernatremia), and any allergies.
