Artesunate 120 MG Injection


Artesunate 120 MG Injection is a medication primarily used for the treatment of severe malaria caused by Plasmodium falciparum, a parasite transmitted through the bite of infected mosquitoes. It belongs to the class of antimalarial drugs known as artemisinin, which are highly effective in rapidly reducing the number of malaria parasites in the bloodstream. Artesunate works by damaging the cell membranes of the parasites, leading to their destruction and ultimately curing the infection. This injection is often used in cases where oral medications cannot be taken due to severe illness, inability to swallow, or impaired absorption in the gastrointestinal tract. Artesunate is considered a first-line treatment for severe malaria and is recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) for its high efficacy and rapid action in saving lives.

Side Effects:-

While Artesunate 120 MG Injection is generally well-tolerated, it may cause some side effects in some individuals. Common side effects may include pain, redness, or swelling at the injection site, headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and fever. More serious side effects are rare but may include allergic reactions such as rash, itching, swelling, or difficulty breathing, as well as changes in blood pressure, heart rate, or liver function. Patients should be closely monitored for any signs of adverse reactions while receiving Artesunate, and healthcare providers should be informed if any unusual or concerning symptoms occur.


Artesunate 120 MG Injection is indicated for the treatment of severe malaria caused by Plasmodium falciparum, particularly in cases where the infection has progressed to a life-threatening stage or when oral antimalarial drugs cannot be administered. It is highly effective in rapidly reducing the number of parasites in the bloodstream, thereby improving the chances of survival and reducing the risk of complications associated with severe malaria, such as cerebral malaria, multi-organ failure, or death. Artesunate is usually given in combination with other antimalarial medications to enhance its efficacy and prevent the development of drug resistance. The dosage and duration of treatment with Artesunate will vary depending on the severity of the infection, the patient’s age, weight, and medical history, as well as local guidelines and recommendations for malaria treatment. It is essential to follow the prescribed regimen carefully and to complete the full course of treatment as directed by a healthcare provider to ensure the infection is fully eradicated and to prevent recurrence or relapse.
