Mannitol + Glycerin


Mannitol + Glycerin is a combination medication used for various purposes. Here are its main uses:

  • Dehydration: Mannitol + Glycerin is used to treat dehydration, especially in situations where oral rehydration is not possible or insufficient. It helps to restore fluid balance in the body by providing hydration.
  • Osmotic Diuretic: This combination acts as an osmotic diuretic, meaning it increases urine production by drawing water into the kidneys. It is used to reduce excess fluid in conditions such as cerebral edema (brain swelling) and acute kidney injury.
  • Intraocular Pressure: Mannitol + Glycerin is sometimes used to lower intraocular pressure in conditions such as acute glaucoma before surgery or other procedures on the eye.
  • Diagnostic Procedures: It may be used as an adjunct in certain diagnostic procedures such as kidney function tests or to facilitate urine flow during imaging tests.

Side Effects:-

While Mannitol + Glycerin is generally safe when used as prescribed, it may cause some side effects in some individuals. Here are potential side effects:

  • Fluid and Electrolyte Imbalance: Excessive use of mannitol and glycerin may lead to fluid and electrolyte imbalance, especially if not monitored properly.
  • Dehydration: In rare cases, excessive diuresis caused by this medication may lead to dehydration, particularly in vulnerable populations such as the elderly or those with kidney problems.
  • Electrolyte Disturbances: Mannitol + Glycerin may cause electrolyte disturbances such as low sodium levels (hyponatremia) or low potassium levels (hypokalemia).
  • Headache: Some individuals may experience headaches while taking this medication.
  • Nausea and Vomiting: Nausea and vomiting may occur, especially with higher doses or prolonged use.
  • Hypotension: In some cases, mannitol and glycerin may cause low blood pressure, particularly if given rapidly or in high doses.
  • Allergic Reactions: Allergic reactions to mannitol or glycerin are rare but possible. Seek medical attention if you experience signs of an allergic reaction, such as rash, itching, swelling, or difficulty breathing.


Mannitol + Glycerin is indicated for the treatment of dehydration, osmotic diuresis to reduce cerebral edema, and to lower intraocular pressure in certain eye conditions. It may also be used as an adjunct in diagnostic procedures. This combination helps restore fluid balance in the body and can be administered intravenously under medical supervision. Always use Mannitol + Glycerin as directed by your healthcare provider.
