What important information do I need to know about Cortrophin Gel?

Be sure to take Cortrophin Gel exactly as your doctor has directed. Always inject Cortrophin Gel under the skin or into the muscle. Do not inject Cortrophin Gel directly into the vein.

  • You may be more likely to get infections. Contact your doctor at the first sign of an infection or fever.
  • Your body may not produce enough natural cortisol after you stop taking Cortrophin Gel long term. This is called adrenal insufficiency. Your doctor may try to reduce your dosage gradually or prescribe a steroid medicine to protect you until the adrenal gland recovers.
  • You might develop high blood pressure, retain too much salt and water, or have low blood potassium levels. As a result of this, your doctor may recommend some changes to your diet, such as eating less salt or taking certain supplements.
  • Corticotropin therapy may hide symptoms of other diseases. This can make it more difficult for your doctor to make a diagnosis if something else is going on.
  • Taking Cortrophin Gel can make you feel irritable or depressed. You may also have mood swings or trouble sleeping.
  • You might develop certain eye conditions, such as cataracts, glaucoma, or optic nerve damage.
  • You may develop allergies to Cortrophin Gel. Signs of an allergic reaction include dizziness, nausea and vomiting, shock, and skin reactions.
  • The effects of Cortrophin Gel may be intensified if you have an underactive thyroid or cirrhosis of the liver.

Side effects of Cortrophin Gel include fluid or salt retention; muscle weakness; osteoporosis, stomach ulcers with possible bleeding; impaired wound healing; high blood pressure; convulsions; headache; development of Cushingoid state (a hormonal condition often characterized by facial puffiness and weight gain); and suppression of growth in children.

These are not all of the possible side effects of Cortrophin Gel. Call your doctor or pharmacist for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to ANI Pharmaceuticals, Inc. at 1-800-308-6755 or FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088 or www.fda.gov/medwatch.
