Tác dụng không mong muốn
Significant: Moderate to severe haemolytic reactions (particularly in patients with G6PD deficiency and those with family or personal history of favism), methaemoglobinaemia (in patients with NADH methaemoglobin reductase deficiency), leucopenia, anaemia, QT interval prolongation, cardiac arrhythmia.
Eye disorders: Visual disturbances.
Gastrointestinal disorders: Nausea, epigastric distress, vomiting, abdominal cramps.
Nervous system disorders: Headache, dizziness.

Chỉ số theo dõi
Screen for G6PD deficiency before starting treatment. Obtain CBC (in G6PD normal patients), glucose, electrolytes, and visual colour check of urine periodically. If haemolysis is suspected, obtain haptoglobin, peripheral smear, CBC, and urinalysis dipstick for occult blood prior to starting treatment. In patients with mild to moderate G6PD deficiency or unknown G6PD status (when testing is unavailable), obtain haematocrit and Hb at baseline and monitor CBC periodically (e.g. at Day 3 and 8). Monitor ECG in patients at risk for QT prolongation. Assess for signs of haemolytic anaemia and other haematologic effects. Perform pregnancy test in sexually active females prior to treatment.
Quá liều
Symptoms: Vomiting, abdominal cramps, burning epigastric distress, CNS disturbances, CV disturbances including cardiac arrhythmia and QT interval prolongation, methaemoglobinaemia, cyanosis, anaemia, moderate leucocytosis or leucopenia; granulocytopenia and acute haemolytic anaemia in sensitive patients. Management: Supportive and symptomatic treatment. May consider administering activated charcoal within 1-2 hours after ingestion. Ascorbic acid may be given at a dose of 200 mg tid to treat methaemoglobinaemia after withdrawing primaquine.
Tương tác
May enhance the QTc-prolonging effect of QT-prolonging agents.
Potentially Fatal: May increase leucopenic effect with bone marrow depressants. Increased risk of toxic side effects with other haemolytic drugs. Mepacrine may enhance the toxicity of primaquine.
Tác dụng
Mechanism of Action: Primaquine is an 8-aminoquinoline antimalarial which is active against exoerythrocytic stages of Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium ovale, primary exoerythrocytic stages of Plasmodium falciparum, and gametocytes of Plasmodia. Its exact mechanism of action has not been determined but it appears to disrupt the mitochondria and bind to DNA.
Absorption: Rapidly and well absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. Time to peak plasma concentration: 1-3 hours.
Distribution: Widely distributed into body tissues. Enters breast milk (small amounts). Volume of distribution: Approx 150-250 L.
Metabolism: Rapidly metabolised in the liver by CYP1A2 isoenzyme to carboxyprimaquine (major active metabolite).
Excretion: Via urine (as unchanged drug in small amounts). Elimination half-life: 7 hours (range: 3.7-9.6 hours).
