Stimate Nasal Spray

Stimate Nasal Spray is prescribed to people with certain bleeding disorders, such as mild hemophilia or type 1 von Willebrand disease (VWD) where there is a problem with blood clotting after an injury or surgery. A diagnosis of VWD means you are not producing enough of a protein, called von Willebrand factor (VWF) so you bleed heavier and longer because your blood’s ability to clot is limited.

Von Willebrand disease is an inherited condition passed from parent to child. There is genetic testing that can determine whether you or a parent, sibling, or children carry the gene or the disorder. If you are planning a family and are the one that carries the gene, you have a 50% chance of passing the gene and/or VWD to your children.

What to Expect from Taking Stimate Nasal Spray

Stimate Nasal Spray contains Desmopressin Acetate, a man-made version of a natural hormone called vasopressin, which helps your body release more of the von Willebrand factor into your bloodstream so your body is able to cause blood to clot when needed.

Vasopressin is essential for regulating your body’s ability to retain water. When your body is dehydrated, it releases the vasopressin hormone so your kidneys will conserve water by concentrating your urine and reducing the volume. This can put you at risk for water intoxication while using Stimate Nasal Spray so you must limit your fluid intake.

Conditions Treated by Stimate Nasal Spray

Stimate Nasal Spray is also recommended for those with mild hemophilia. This is a genetic disorder that involves a missing or diminished amount of the clotting proteins in your blood. For hemophilia A (classic) the protein is called Factor VIII or Factor IX if you have hemophilia B, which is more rare than A. Stimate Nasal Spray will temporarily increase levels of Factor VIII in your bloodstream once released from storage sites. This helps the chain reaction that takes place in order for your blood to form a clot at the site of an injury to keep blood loss at a minimum. Stimate Nasal Spray is also prescribed for people with diabetes insipidus where your body cannot regulate how it handles fluids. Diabetes insipidus is unrelated to diabetes mellitus.

Before You Use Stimate Nasal Spray

You will need to talk to your doctor before using Stimate Nasal Spray if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding and find out if it may be harmful to your unborn or nursing baby. Tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC or Rx drugs you are taking, including herbal preparations and vitamin or dietary supplements. This will help your doctor to determine if Stimate Nasal Spray is safe for you to use.

Stimate Nasal Spray Precautions

If you are travelling to warmer weather, increasing your physical activities, or you will be increasing your fluid intake for other reasons, inform your doctor right away or you could risk low blood sodium. You may also be at risk for this if you develop a fever or have vomiting and diarrhea; so you should see your doctor as soon as you are able to. Keep all lab test appointments as these are important for monitoring your condition.
