About Adenosine Injection, USP

Adenosine Injection, USP, is the generic equivalent of Astellas Pharma U.S., Inc.'s Adenocard(R), an antiarrhythmic commonly used in the treatment of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia, a rhythm disturbance of the heart, in critical care situations. Adenosine works by slowing the electrical conduction in the heart, slowing heart rate of normalizing heart rhythm.

Adenosine injection does not convert atrial flutter, atrial fibrillation, or ventricular tachycardia to normal sinus rhythm. In the presence of atrial flutter or atrial fibrillation, a transient modest slowing of ventricular response may occur immediately following adenosine administration.

The package insert, which is available at, contains detailed information about the indication, complete side effect profile and prescribing information.
