Do not use with a slightly open cervix or incorrect position of the fetus. Oxytocin enhances the contraction of the myometrium. During pregnancy, the uterus is more sensitive to the drug. The effect of oxytocin increases with increasing gestational age and reaches a maximum during childbirth. High sensitivity persists for several days after birth.
Oxytocin affects the secretion of milk (increases the release of lactogenic hormone of the anterior pituitary gland) and its secretion (due to the excitation of myoepithelial elements of the breast).
Oxytocin solution can be used together with many solutions for intravenous administration and the following drugs: netilmicin sulfate, sodium bicarbonate, tetracycline hydrochloride, sodium thiopental, verapamil hydrochloride.
Oxytocin is not compatible with fibrinolysin, norepinephrine, meterazine, warfarin sodium.
