Caffeine Citrate for Injection

Caffeine Citrate for Injection is used for the short-term treatment of a breathing problem (apnea) in premature infants. Caffeine blocks certain proteins (adenosine receptors) which lead to improved breathing in these infants. Made by APP Pharmaceuticals.
Caffeine citrate is indicated for the short term treatment of apnea of prematurity in infants between 28 and < 33 weeks gestational age.
Prior to initiation of caffeine citrate, baseline serum levels of caffeine should be measured in infants previously treated with theophylline, since preterm infants metabolize theophylline to caffeine. Likewise, baseline serum levels of caffeine should be measured in infants born to mothers who consumed caffeine prior to delivery, since caffeine readily crosses the placenta.
Both Caffeine Citrate injection, USP for intravenous administration and Caffeine Citrate Oral Solution, USP are clear, colorless, sterile, nonpyrogenic, preservative-free, aqueous solutions adjusted to pH 4.7. Each mL contains 20 mg caffeine citrate (equivalent to 10 mg of caffeine base) prepared in solution by the addition of 10 mg caffeine anhydrous to 5.0 mg citric acid monohydrate, 8.3 mg sodium citrate dihydrate and Water for Injection.
