What are the possible side effects of zanamivir (Relenza)?

Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
Some people using zanamivir have had rare side effects of confusion, delirium and self-injury. These symptoms have occurred most often in children.

The active component of RELENZA is zanamivir. The chemical name of zanamivir
is 5-(acetylamino)-4-[(aminoiminomethyl)-amino]-2,6-anhydro-3,4,5-trideoxy-D-glycero-D-galacto-non-2-enonic
acid. It has a molecular formula of C12H20N4O7
and a molecular weight of 332.3. It has the following structural formula:








Zanamivir is a white to off-white powder for oral inhalation with a solubility of approximately 18 mg/mL in water at 20°C.
RELENZA is for administration to the respiratory tract by oral inhalation only.
Each RELENZA ROTADISK contains 4 regularly spaced double-foil blisters with
each blister containing a powder mixture of 5 mg of zanamivir and 20 mg of lactose
(which contains milk proteins). The contents of each blister are inhaled using
a specially designed breath-activated plastic device for inhaling powder called
the DISKHALER. After a RELENZA ROTADISK is loaded into the DISKHALER, a blister
that contains medication is pierced and the zanamivir is dispersed into the
air stream created when the patient inhales through the mouthpiece. The amount
of drug delivered to the respiratory tract will depend on patient factors such
as inspiratory flow. Under standardized in vitro testing, RELENZA ROTADISK
delivers 4 mg of zanamivir from the DISKHALER device when tested at a pressure
drop of 3 kPa (corresponding to a flow rate of about 62 to 65 L/min) for 3 seconds.
