Ultiva Addiction and Abuse
Ultiva is administered by a medical professional as part of the surgery process to aid with pain relief. Your doctor will monitor your vitals while you are taking this medication to ensure that you do not experience any adverse reactions. You should never take more Ultiva than prescribed or take it without being advised by a doctor, as this can lead to severe side effects or possibly an overdose.
Ultiva is only injected in a medical setting, so you don’t have to worry about missing a dose or taking too much medication. Your doctor may give you Ultiva in addition to other pain medication, depending on the surgery and your pain levels.
The medical professional who administers Ultiva may watch for any serious side effects, such as weak breathing, slowed heart rate, fainting, extreme weakness, or stiff muscles. Severe side effects, such as hives, facial swelling, and difficulty breathing may indicate an allergic reaction, and immediate medical attention will be needed.
Taking Ultiva with other prescription medications or over-the-counter medications can cause a drug interaction which can be fatal. Serious side effects are most likely to occur in patients that are overweight, underweight or those who are weak. Never take Ultiva without the care of a doctor in order to avoid a serious and possibly fatal adverse reaction.
