Indications of Dinakion 10 mg/ml

Dinakion 10 mg/ml (Vitamin K-1) is indicated in following indications- Prophylaxis and treatment of haemorrhagic disease in the newborn. Haemorrhage or risk of haemorrhage as a result of severe hypoprothrombinemia (i.e. deficiency of clotting factors II, VII, IX and X) of various etiologies, including overdosage of courmarin-type anticoagulants, their combination with phenylbutazone, and other forms of hypovitaminosis K (e.g. in obstructive jaundice as well as liver and intestinal disorders, and after prolonged treatment with antibiotics, sulphonamides or salicylates). Prevention and treatment of bleeding due to vitamin K deficiency.

Theropeutic Class

Vitamin-K Preparations


Dinakion 10 mg/ml is a procoagulant factor. As a component of a hepatic carboxylase system, Dinakion 10 mg/ml is involved in the post translational carboxylation of clotting factors II (prothrombin), VII, IX and X and the clotting inhibitors protein C and protein S. Dinakion 10 mg/ml is ineffective in hereditary hypoprothrombinemia or hypoprothrombinemia induced by severe hepatic failure. Lack of Dinakion 10 mg/ml leads to an increased tendency to haemorrhagic disease in the newborn. Dinakion 10 mg/ml administration, which promotes synthesis of the above-mentioned coagulation factors by the liver, can reverse an abnormal coagulation status and bleeding due to Dinakion 10 mg/ml deficiency.

Dosage & Administration of Dinakion 10 mg/ml

Prophylaxis: Mild Hemorrhage or hemorrhagic tendency: The usual dose for Neonates is 2 mg orally at or just after birth. Then 2 mg on 4th-5th day and another 2 mg on 28th-30th day orally.

Neonates with special risk factors: Pre-maturity, birth asphyxia (inadequate intake of oxygen by the baby during birth process), obstructive jaundice, inability to swallow, maternal use of anticoagulants or anti-epileptics- 1 mg intramuscularly or intravenously at birth or shortly after birth if the oral route is unsuitable. Intramuscular and intravenous doses should not exceed 0.4 mg/kg in premature infants weighing less than 2.5 kg.
