Special Information
The responsiveness to carbetocin of the myometrium is likely to be close to zero from the 5th to the 11th day post partum. Therefore, the administration of Reprocine during this period is likely to be inefficient and should be avoided.
If treatment with carbetocin should fail, then it is advisable to reconsider the aetiology of the condition, specifically if hypocalcaemia could be a complicating factor.
In case of severe septic metritis, appropriate concomitant therapy should be instigated when administering Reprocine.
