ULTERIA 50MG TABLET 10
Artesunate is an antimalarial drug administered for the treatment of severe chloroquine resistant malaria and complicated malaria like cerebral malaria.
The most common side effects of this drug are abnormal blood cell count, abnormal liver function tests, anaemia, bradycardia, dizziness, gastrointestinal disturbance, altered heart rate, or feeling of discomfort.
Artesunate administration is usually safe and well-tolerated by patients. In severe malaria treatment artesunate delayed haemolysis (occurring around two weeks post treatment) is observed. Though, it is not clear whether haemolysis is induced by artesunate or malaria itself.
