  • Abstract:

    Since vancomycin hydrochloride is very irritating to tissue, it must be administered intravenously and care must be taken to avoid extravasation. Pain and thrombophlebitis occur after intravenous administration in many patients. The frequency and severity of vascular disease can be minimized by administering the drug slowly as a dilute solution.
