Dosage and Administration

Each Vial of Poly-B contains 500,000 units of Polymyxin B Sulphate.

Polymyxin B Sulphate can be administered in a number of different ways.

Intravenous Administration: One vial should be dissolved in 300 to 500 mL of solution for parenteral dextrose injection 5% for continuous drip. A dosage of 15,000 to 25,000 units/kg body weight/day is usually given to adults with no kidney problems. A lower dosage should be given to adults with kidney impairment or to children or infants.

Intramuscular Injection: Dissolve one Poly-B vial in 2 mL sterile water for injection or sodium chloride injection or procaine hydrochloride injection 1%. A dosage of 25,000 to 30,000 units/kg/day should be given to healthy adults. Children and patients with renal problems require a lower dosage.

Intrathecal Administration: Dissolve one vial of Poly-B in 10 mL sodium chloride injection USP. A dosage of 50,000 units once daily is given for 3 to 4 days. This is then reduced to 50,000 units once every second day for at least 2 weeks after cultures of the cerebrospinal fluid are negative and sugar content has returned to normal.

Ophthalmic Administration: Dissolve one Poly-B vial in 20 to 50 mL sterile water for injection or sodium chloride injection USP. Drops should be applied 1 to 3 times per hour.
