What is Banamine Paste?

For: Horses
 
Benefits:

Non-steroidal and non-narcotic

How it works:
Banamine (flunixin meglumine) is an analgesic, which means it relieves pain. It’s also an antipyretic (fever reducer).

Cautions:
Tell your veterinarian if your horse is using any other anti-inflammatory medications, such as NSAIDs (phenylbutazone) or corticosteroids (dexamethasone). Side effects include localized swelling, sweating, induration, and stiffness. In rare instances, fatal or nonfatal clostridial infections or other infections have been reported.


More Information:
 
Brand Name
Banamine Paste (Schering-Plough)
Generic Name
Flunixin meglumine

What is the most important information I should know about Banamine: Banamine is a prescription medication FDA approved for use in horses.

What is Banamine: Banamine is an analgesic and anti-inflammatory medication. It is available 100 ml multi-dose vials containing 50 mg/ml and as a Paste in an Oral Syringe containing 1500mg/30 Gm. Banamine is used in horses to alleviate pain and inflammation due to musculoskeletal disorders. It is also used to alleviate pain associated with equine colic. Banamine may also be used for purposes other than those listed.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Banamine to my horse: Do not use this medication in animals allergic to it. Tell your veterinarian if the animal is using any other anti-inflammatory medication such as NSAIDs (phenylbutazone) or corticosteroid (dexamethasone).

How should this medication be given: Use this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. The usual dose of Banamine injectable in horses for musculoskeletal disorders is 0.5mg per pound of body weight administered I.V. or I.M. once a day for up to 5 days. For pain associated with equine colic the usual dose is 0.5mg per pound of body weight administered I.V. or I.M. once a day. I.V. administration is recommended for prompt relief. In some instances a second or third dose may be necessary. The Banamine Paste Oral Syringe is calibrated in twelve 250 lb weight increments and delivers 125mg for each 250 lbs. One Oral Syringe will treat a 1000 lb horse once a day for 3 days, or three 1000 lb horses once. Store Banamine injection and Banamine Paste Oral Syringe at room temperature. Keep this medication out of the reach of children and pets.

What happens if I miss giving a dose: Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and give the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What happens if I overdose the horse: If an overdose is suspected, seek emergency veterinary medical treatment.

What should I avoid while giving Banamine to my horse: Do not give Banamine to animals allergic to it. Do not administer Banamine if the animal is also being given an NSAID such as aspirin or phenylbutazone. Avoid intra-arterial administration of this medication. Side effects due to intra-articular injection can include ataxia, incoordination, hyperventilation, hysteria and muscle weakness. These signs are transient and disappear within a few minutes.

What are the possible side effects of Banamine: In horses, isolated reports of localized reactions following I.M. injection, particularly in the neck, have been received. These include localized swelling, sweating, induration, and stiffness. In rare instances in horses, fatal or nonfatal clostridial infections or other infections have been reported in association with I.M. use. In rare instances, anaphylactic-like reactions, some of which have been fatal, have been reported, primarily follwing I.V. use.

What other drugs will affect Banamine: Before giving Banamine, tell your veterinarian if your horse is being given an oral steroid medications such as prednisone, prednisOLOne, Methylprednisolone or NSAIDs such as aspirin or phenylbutazone. Drugs other than those listed may also interact with Banamine . Talk to the veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any prescription or over the counter medicines.

Where can I get more information: Your pharmacist has additional information about Banamine written for health professionals that you may read.

Answer: 
It is not recommended to give banamine to a horse on previcox. Banamine should not be used with any NSAIDS, and previcox is considered to be an NSAID.
