What is Moriamin S-2 used for?

Moriamin S-2 is a preparation containing essential and non-essential amino acids, glycine, and sorbitol. Amino acids are considered the building blocks of proteins, owing to their nitrogen content. They are necessary for the synthesis of important substances like neurotransmitters, hormones, and muscle fibers.

Essential amino acids cannot be synthesized by the human body and must be obtained through food such as meat and other sources of protein. Non-essential amino acids are normally obtained through a series of intracellular metabolic processes.

Moriamin S-2 is mainly indicated to treat the following conditions:

  • Hypoproteinemia
  • Malnutrition
  • Pre- and post-operation
  • How should I take Moriamin S-2?

    Moriamin S-2 is available as a parenteral solution for infusion. It is injected through the intravenous (IV) route and should not be taken as an oral solution. The dose must be administered slowly via IV infusion to minimize injection site irritation and adverse effects. It should be administered by a licensed health professional.

    How do I store Moriamin S-2?

    This drug should be stored at room temperature (<30°C) and be protected from light and moisture. Do not allow this product to freeze. Crystallization may occur at low temperatures. Before use, warm it to 50-60°C and administer it when the temperature cools to normal body temperature (~37°C).

    Always check the label before using this product. Do not use if the printed expiration date has passed, the product seal has been broken, or the product has changed in color, odor, or consistency. For safety, keep out of the reach of children and pets.

    Do not dispose of this product by pouring it down the drain, toilet, or into the environment. Ask your pharmacist regarding the proper way and location of disposal.

    Precautions & Warnings

    What should I know before using Moriamin S-2?

    Each amino acid preparation is uniquely blended and designed to treat metabolic disorders, supplement nutritional requirements, or correct deficiencies. Moriamin S-2 may not be a suitable substitute for other amino acid solutions to treat a specific condition.

    Moriamin S-2 contains sodium and chloride in addition to amino acids so careful monitoring of electrolyte balance is necessary when given with an electrolyte solution or in large doses.

    Before using this medication, inform your doctor if:

    • You have ever had an adverse reaction to Moriamin S-2 or other amino acid preparations
    • You have a history of allergy to other medications, food, or other substances
    • You are taking other medications, especially other sources of electrolytes
    • You have underlying health conditions, such as congestive heart failure

    Is it safe during pregnancy or breastfeeding?

    During pregnancy, protein and amino acid requirements are increased to support both maternal health and fetal growth. Generally, amino acid administration is safe, even necessary in certain cases. However, the types and doses of amino acids should be individualized for each patient.

    This preparation should be used during pregnancy only when necessary.

    This drug may be excreted in breast milk. This drug should be used while breastfeeding only when necessary.
