Pharmacology: Amino acids are the basic building blocks of proteins and enzymes and are essential for normal healthy bodily function especially during growth and convalescence. The essential amino acids cannot be made in the body and must be included in the diet or as a supplement.
Aminomin is used as a supplement in the treatment conditions associated with deficiency of certain vitamins and amino acids eg, severe infections, degenerative diseases, endocrine dysfunction, surgical procedures, injuries, burns, old age, beri-beri, riboflavinosis or pellagra. Dietary management of urea cycle disorders and nutritional supplementation.
Treatment of inadequate dietary intake. Increased utilization of micronutrients in fever, trauma, cancer, critically-ill patients and patients recovering from malnutrition.
Management of maple syrup urine disease, an inborn error in leucine metabolism. This is generally seen in infants and result in retardation.
Increased loss eg, diarrhoea, burns, blood loss.
For enhancement of host defense during convalescence from surgery or chronic debilitating conditions and for acceleration of wound healing.
15 mL (1 tbsp) twice daily.
Hypersensitivity to any component of Aminomin and patients with hypervitaminosis.
Aminomin is not intended for the treatment of pernicious anaemia since neurologic involvement may develop or progress despite temporary remission of anaemia in patients with vitamin B12.
Aminomin is not recommended for the treatment of severe deficiencies of vitamins. In such cases, the underlying cause should be determined and corrected if possible.
Adverse effects are rare. Aminomin can cause allergic reactions, rashes and GI disturbances eg, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea or constipation.
