Introduction to Acugest 500 Injection

Acugest 500 Injection contains Hydroxyprogesterone and falls under the class of progestins.

It operates by exerting progestogenic effects in the body. As a progestin, it mimics the action of natural progesterone, influencing the uterine lining and maintaining a conducive environment for a potential pregnancy. This is particularly relevant in cases where additional progestin support is needed.

While it can be taken with or without food, maintaining a consistent time for administration is recommended for better results.

Some common side effects associated with this include injection site pain, swelling, and the appearance of red spots or bumps.

The use of progestins, including this drug has been linked to an increased risk of thromboembolic events, such as blood clots. This risk may be elevated in individuals with preexisting conditions that predispose them to thrombosis. Individuals with a history of venous thromboembolism or a hypercoagulable state should be particularly cautious.

It's uncommon to miss a dose of hydroxyprogesterone, as healthcare professionals closely monitor the administration schedule However, if there's a suspicion of a missed dose, it's crucial to inform your doctor or nurse promptly.
