Nimenrix How to Take

Nimenrix (Meningococcal-vaccine) belongs to the family of medications known as vaccines. It is used to prevent infections such as Meningitis, pneumonia, and blood infections caused by the bacteria Neisseria meningitidis groups A, C, Y, and W-135. It works by stimulating the production of antibodies (substances produced by the immune system designed to attack that particular bacteria). These antibodies remain in the body, ready to attack these bacteria, thereby reducing the risk of infection.

It is given to people who are 6 weeks to 55 years of age. It starts to work several days to a few weeks after the vaccine is given.

Nimenrix (Meningococcal-vaccine) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Nimenrix (Meningococcal-vaccine) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Nimenrix (Meningococcal-vaccine) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Nimenrix (Meningococcal-vaccine) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Nimenrix (Meningococcal-vaccine), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Nimenrix (Meningococcal-vaccine) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Nimenrix (Meningococcal-vaccine) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Nimenrix (Meningococcal-vaccine) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Nimenrix (Meningococcal-vaccine). Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.
