How to Take Esmolol Safely

General Information on Dosing With Esmolol

Some considerations for people taking esmolol include the following:
 
  • Esmolol comes in injectable form. It is given by IV.
     
  • Esmolol is usually used only temporarily. If long-term treatment is required, the patient should be switched to a different medication.
     
  • As with many IV medications, healthcare providers must take care to prevent the medication from leaking outside of a vein, as it can be very irritating and damaging to the tissues.
     
  • Healthcare providers must be very careful when making IVs with this medication. Deaths have resulted from inaccurately diluting the medication (usually from accidentally making the concentration too high).
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to dosing with esmolol, please talk with your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
