Adults and Children:

See full labeling. Peripheral nerve stimulator and monitoring for twitch responses should be used to determine time of Bloxiverz initiation and the need for additional doses. Individualize. Give by IV inj slowly over a period of at least 1 min. Administer an anticholinergic (eg, atropine sulfate, glycopyrrolate) prior to (if bradycardia present) or concomitantly with Bloxiverz.
