How should I use Vilamit MB?

VILAMIT MB is indicated for the treatment of symptoms of irritative voiding. Indicated for the relief of local symptoms, such as inflammation, hypermotility, and pain which accompany lower urinary tract infections. Indicated for the relief of urinary tract symptoms caused by diagnostic procedures.

One capsule orally 4 times per day followed by liberal fluid intake.


What interacts with Vilamit MB?

VILAMIT MB is contraindicated in patients with a hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients. Risk-benefit should be considered when the following medical problems exist: Cardiac disease (especially cardiac arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, coronary heart disease, and mitral stenosis); gastrointestinal tract obstructive disease; glaucoma; myasthenia gravis; acute urinary retention may be precipitated in obstructive uropathy (such as bladder neck obstruction due to prostatic hypertrophy).



What are the warnings of Vilamit MB?

Although IH typically resolves after discontinuation of treatment, the possibility for permanent visual loss exists. If visual disturbance occurs during treatment, prompt ophthalmologic evaluation is warranted. Since intracranial pressure can remain elevated for weeks after drug cessation patients should be monitored until they stabilize.

Do not exceed recommended dosage. If rapid pulse, dizziness, or blurring of vision occurs, discontinue use immediately.

Patients should be advised that urine will be colored blue to blue-green while taking this medication. Do not exceed recommended dosage.


What are the precautions of Vilamit MB?

Contains Methylene Blue and should NOT be taken with serotonergic psychiatric medications.

Cross sensitivity and/or related problems

Patients intolerant of other belladonna alkaloids may be intolerant of this medication also. Delay in gastric emptying could complicate the management of gastric ulcers.

Pregnancy/Reproduction (FDA Pregnancy Category C)

Hyoscyamine and methenamine cross the placenta. Studies have not been done in either animals or humans. It is not known whether VILAMIT MB can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. VILAMIT MB should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.

Nursing Mothers

Methenamine and traces of Hyoscyamine are excreted in breast milk. Caution should be exercised when VILAMIT MB is administered to a nursing mother.

Prolonged Use

There have been no studies to establish the safety of prolonged use in humans. No known long-term animal studies have been performed to evaluate carcinogenic potential.

Pediatric

Infants and young children are especially susceptible to the toxic effect of the belladonna alkaloids.

Geriatric

Use with caution in elderly patients as they may respond to the usual doses of the belladonna alkaloids with excitement, agitation, drowsiness, or confusion.

Drug Interactions

Although the exact mechanism of this drug interaction is unknown, methylene blue inhibits the action of monoamine oxidase A – an enzyme responsible for breaking down serotonin in the brain. It is believed that when methylene blue is given to patients taking serotonergic psychiatric medications, high levels of serotonin can build up in the brain, causing toxicity. This is referred to as Serotonin Syndrome. Signs and symptoms of Serotonin Syndrome include mental changes (confusion, hyperactivity, memory problems), muscle twitching, excessive sweating, shivering or shaking, diarrhea, and trouble with coordination and/or fever.

Methylene blue can interact with serotonergic psychiatric medications and cause serious CNS toxicity.

In emergency situations requiring life-threatening or urgent treatment with methylene blue (as described above), the availability of alternative interventions should be considered and the benefit of methylene blue treatment should be weighed against the risk of serotonin toxicity. If methylene blue must be administered to a patient receiving a serotonergic drug, the serotonergic drug must be immediately stopped, and the patient should be closely monitored for emergent symptoms of CNS toxicity for two weeks (five weeks if fluoxetine [Prozac] was taken), or until 24 hours after the last dose of methylene blue, whichever comes first.

In non-emergency situations when non-urgent treatment with methylene blue is contemplated and planned, the serotonergic psychiatric medication should be stopped to allow its activity in the brain to dissipate. Most serotonergic psychiatric drugs should be stopped at least 2 weeks in advance of methylene blue treatment. Fluoxetine (Prozac), which has a longer half-life compared to similar drugs, should be stopped at least 5 weeks in advance.

Treatment with the serotonergic psychiatric medication may be resumed 24 hours after the last dose of methylene blue.

Serotonergic psychiatric medications should not be started in a patient receiving methylene blue. Wait until 24 hours after the last dose of methylene blue before starting the antidepressant.

Educate your patients to recognize the symptoms of serotonin toxicity or CNS toxicity and advise them to contact a healthcare professional immediately if they experience any symptoms while taking serotonergic psychiatric medications or methylene blue.

As a result of hyoscyamine's effect on gastrointestinal motility and gastric emptying, absorption of other oral medications may be decreased during concurrent use with this combination medications.

What might happen if I take too much Vilamit MB?

Emesis or gastric lavage. Slow intravenous administration of physostigmine in doses of 1 to 4 mg (0.5 to 1 mg in children) repeated as needed in one to two hours to reverse severe antimuscarinic symptoms.

Administration of small doses of diazepam to control excitement and seizures. Artificial respiration with oxygen if needed for respiratory depression. Adequate hydration. Symptomatic treatment as necessary.

If overdose is suspected, contact the poison control center at 1-800-222-1222, or your local emergency room immediately.

Clinical Information

Chemical Structure

Clinical Pharmacology

METHENAMINE degrades in an acidic urine environment releasing formaldehyde which provide bactericidal or bacteriostatic action. It is well absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. 70% to 90% reaches the urine unchanged at which point it is hydrolyzed if the urine is acidic. Within 24 hours it is almost completely (90%) excreted; of this amount at pH 5, approximately 20% is formaldehyde. Protein binding – some formaldehyde is bound to substances in the urine and surrounding tissues. Methenamine is freely distributed to body tissue and fluids but is not clinically significant as it does not hydrolyze at pH greater than 6.8.

SODIUM PHOSPHATE MONOBASIC an acidifier, helps to maintain an acid pH in the urine necessary for the degradation of methenamine.

PHENYL SALICYLATE releases salicylate, a mild analgesic for pain.

METHYLENE BLUE possesses weak antiseptic properties. It is well absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract and is rapidly reduced to leukomethylene blue which is stabilized in some combination form in the urine. 75% is excreted unchanged.

HYOSCYAMINE SULFATE is a parasympatholytic drug which relaxes smooth muscles and this produces an antispasmodic effect. It is well absorbed form the gastrointestinal tract and is rapidly distributed throughout the body tissues. Most is excreted in the urine within 12 hours, 13% to 50% being unchanged. Protein binding for hyoscyamine sulfate is moderate and biotransformation is hepatic.
