Digestal uses

Digestal consists of Magnesium Thiosulfate, Sodium Thiosulfate, Vitamin B.

Sodium Thiosulfate:


Digestal is indicated for sequential use with sodium nitrite for treatment of acute cyanide poisoning that is judged to be life-threatening. (1)

  • Use with caution if the diagnosis of cyanide poisoning is uncertain. (1)

1.1 Indication

Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) Injection is indicated for sequential use with sodium nitrite for the treatment of acute cyanide poisoning that is judged to be life-threatening. When the diagnosis of cyanide poisoning is uncertain, the potential risks associated with Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) Injection should be carefully weighed against the potential benefits, especially if the patient is not in extremis.

1.2 Identifying Patients with Cyanide Poisoning

Cyanide poisoning may result from inhalation, ingestion, or dermal exposure to various cyanide-containing compounds, including smoke from closed-space fires. Sources of cyanide poisoning include hydrogen cyanide and its salts, cyanogenic plants, aliphatic nitriles, and prolonged exposure to sodium nitroprusside.

The presence and extent of cyanide poisoning are often initially unknown. There is no widely available, rapid, confirmatory cyanide blood test. Treatment decisions must be made on the basis of clinical history and signs and symptoms of cyanide intoxication. If clinical suspicion of cyanide poisoning is high, Digestal Injection and Sodium Nitrite Injection should be administered without delay.

Symptoms Signs
  • Headache
  • Confusion
  • Dyspnea
  • Chest Tightness
  • Nausea
  • Altered Mental Status

    (e.g., confusion, disorientation)

  • Seizures or Coma
  • Mydriasis
  • Tachypnea/Hyperpnea (early)
  • Bradypnea/Apnea (late)
  • Hypertension (early)/ Hypotension (late)
  • Cardiovascular Collapse
  • Vomiting
  • Plasma Lactate Concentration ≥ 8 mmol/L

In some settings, panic symptoms including tachypnea and vomiting may mimic early cyanide poisoning signs. The presence of altered mental status (e.g., confusion and disorientation) and/or mydriasis is suggestive of true cyanide poisoning although these signs can occur with other toxic exposures as well.

The expert advice of a regional poison control center may be obtained by calling 1-800-222-1222.

Smoke Inhalation

Not all smoke inhalation victims will have cyanide poisoning and may present with burns, trauma, and exposure to other toxic substances making a diagnosis of cyanide poisoning particularly difficult. Prior to administration of Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) Injection smoke-inhalation victims should be assessed for the following:

  • Exposure to fire or smoke in an enclosed area
  • Presence of soot around the mouth, nose, or oropharynx
  • Altered mental status

Although hypotension is highly suggestive of cyanide poisoning, it is only present in a small percentage of cyanide-poisoned smoke inhalation victims. Also indicative of cyanide poisoning is a plasma lactate concentration greater than or equal to 10 mmol/L (a value higher than that typically listed in the table of signs and symptoms of isolated cyanide poisoning because carbon monoxide associated with smoke inhalation also contributes to lactic acidemia). If cyanide poisoning is suspected, treatment should not be delayed to obtain a plasma lactate concentration.

1.3 Use with Other Cyanide Antidotes

Caution should be exercised when administering cyanide antidotes, other than sodium nitrite, simultaneously with Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) Injection, as the safety of co-administration has not been established. If a decision is made to administer another cyanide antidote, other than sodium nitrite, with Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) Injection, these drugs should not be administered concurrently in the same IV line. [see Dosage and Administration (2.2) ]



Age Intravenous Dose of Sodium Nitrite and Digestal
  • Sodium Nitrite -10 mL of sodium nitrite at the rate of 2.5 to 5 mL/minute
  • Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) - 50 mL of Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) immediately following administration of sodium nitrite.
  • Sodium Nitrite - 0.2 mL/kg (6 mg/kg or 6-8 mL/m2 BSA) of sodium nitrite at the rate of 2.5 to 5 mL/minute not to exceed 10 mL
  • Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) - 1 mL/kg of body weight (250 mg/kg or approximately 30-40 mL/m2 of BSA) not to exceed 50 mL total dose immediately following administration of sodium nitrite.

Redosing: If signs of cyanide poisoning reappear, repeat treatment using one-half the original dose of both sodium nitrite and Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate).

Monitoring: Blood pressure must be monitored during treatment. (2.2)

2.1 Administration Recommendation

Comprehensive treatment of acute cyanide intoxication requires support of vital functions. Administration of sodium nitrite and Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) should be considered adjunctive to appropriate supportive therapies. Airway, ventilatory and circulatory support, and oxygen administration should not be delayed to administer sodium nitrite and Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate).

Sodium nitrite injection and Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) injection are administered by slow intravenous injection. They should be given as early as possible after a diagnosis of acute life-threatening cyanide poisoning has been established. Sodium nitrite should be administered first, followed immediately by Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate). Blood pressure must be monitored during infusion in both adults and children. The rate of infusion should be decreased if significant hypotension is noted.

Age Intravenous Dose of Sodium Nitrite and Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate)
  • Sodium Nitrite -10 mL of sodium nitrite at the rate of 2.5 to 5 mL/minute
  • Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) - 50 mL of Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) immediately following administration of sodium nitrite.
  • Sodium Nitrite -0.2 mL/kg (6 mg/kg or 6-8 mL/m2 BSA) of sodium nitrite at the rate of 2.5 to 5 mL/minute not to exceed 10 mL
  • Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) - 1 mL/kg of body weight (250 mg/kg or approximately 30-40 mL/m2 of BSA) not to exceed 50 mL total dose immediately following administration of sodium nitrite.

NOTE: If signs of poisoning reappear, repeat treatment using one-half the original dose of both sodium nitrite and Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate).

In adult and pediatric patients with known anemia, it is recommended that the dosage of sodium nitrite should be reduced proportionately to the hemoglobin concentration.

All parenteral drug products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration, whenever solution and container permit.

2.2 Recommended Monitoring

Patients should be monitored for at least 24-48 hours after Digestal Injection administration for adequacy of oxygenation and perfusion and for recurrent signs and symptoms of cyanide toxicity. When possible, hemoglobin/hematocrit should be obtained when treatment is initiated. Measurements of oxygen saturation using standard pulse oximetry and calculated oxygen saturation values based on measured PO2 are unreliable in the presence of methemoglobinemia.

2.3 Incompatibility Information

Chemical incompatibility has been reported between Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) Injection and hydroxocobalamin and these drugs should not be administered simultaneously through the same IV line. No chemical incompatibility has been reported between Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) and sodium nitrite, when administered sequentially through the same IV line as described in Dosage and Administration.



Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) Injection consists of:

  • One vial of Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) injection USP 12.5 grams/50 mL (250 mg/mL)

Administration of the contents of one vial constitutes a single dose.

  • Injection, 12.5 grams/50 mL (250 mg/mL). (3)



  • None. (4)


  • Sulfites: Digestal may contain trace impurities of sodium sulfite (5.1)

5.1 Sulfites

Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) drug product may contain trace impurities of sodium sulfite. The presence of a trace amount of sulfites in this product should not deter administration of the drug for treatment of emergency situations, even if the patient is sulfite-sensitive.


There have been no controlled clinical trials conducted to systematically assess the adverse events profile of Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate).

The medical literature has reported the following adverse events in association with Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) administration. These adverse events were not reported in the context of controlled trials or with consistent monitoring and reporting methodologies for adverse events. Therefore, frequency of occurrence of these adverse events cannot be assessed.

Cardiovascular system: hypotension

Central nervous system: headache, disorientation

Gastrointestinal system: nausea, vomiting

Hematological: prolonged bleeding time

Body as a Whole: salty taste in mouth, warm sensation over body

In humans, rapid administration of concentrated solutions or solutions not freshly prepared, and administration of large doses of Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) have been associated with a higher incidence of nausea and vomiting. However, administration of 0.1 g Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) per pound up to a maximum of 15 g in a 10-15% solution over 10-15 minutes was associated with nausea and vomiting in 7 of 26 patients without concomitant cyanide intoxication.

In a series of 11 human subjects, a single intravenous infusion of 50 mL of 50% Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) was associated with increases in clotting time 1-3 days after administration. However, no significant changes were observed in other hematological parameters.

Most common adverse reactions are:

  • Hypotension, headache, disorientation (6)

Formal drug interaction studies have not been conducted with Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) Injection.


  • Renal impairment: Digestal is substantially excreted by the kidney. The risk of toxic reactions to this drug may be greater in patients with impaired renal function. (8.6).

8.1 Pregnancy

Teratogenic Effects. Pregnancy Category C.

There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) Injection should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus.

There are no reported epidemiological studies of congenital anomalies in infants born to women treated with Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) during pregnancy. In animal studies, there are no teratogenic effects in offspring of hamsters treated during pregnancy with Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) in doses similar to those given intravenously to treat cyanide poisoning in humans. Other studies suggest that treatment with Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) ameliorates the teratogenic effects of maternal cyanide poisoning in hamsters. In other studies, Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) was not embryotoxic or teratogenic in mice, rats, hamsters, or rabbits at maternal doses of up to 550, 400, 400 and 580 mg/kg/day, respectively.

8.3 Nursing Mothers

It is not known whether Digestal is excreted in human milk. Because Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) Injection may be administered in life-threatening situations, breast-feeding is not a contraindication to its use. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised following Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) Injection administration to a nursing woman. There are no data to determine when breastfeeding may be safely restarted following administration of Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate).

8.4 Pediatric Use

There are case reports in the medical literature of sodium nitrite in conjunction with Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) being administered to pediatric patients with cyanide poisoning; however, there have been no clinical studies to evaluate the safety or efficacy of Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) in the pediatric population. As for adult patients, dosing recommendations for pediatric patients have been based on theoretical calculations of antidote detoxifying potential, extrapolation from animal experiments, and a small number of human case reports.

8.5 Geriatric Use

Digestal is known to be substantially excreted by the kidney, and the risk of adverse reactions to this drug may be greater in patients with impaired renal function. Because elderly patients are more likely to have decreased renal function, care should be taken in dose selection, and it may be useful to monitor renal function.

8.6 Renal Disease

Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) is known to be substantially excreted by the kidney, and the risk of toxic reactions to this drug may be greater in patients with impaired renal function. Because elderly patients are more likely to have decreased renal function, care should be taken in dose selection, and it may be useful to monitor renal function.



There is limited information about the effects of large doses of Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) in humans. Oral administration of 3 g Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) per day for 1-2 weeks in humans resulted in reductions in room air arterial oxygen saturation to as low as 75%, which was due to a rightward shift in the oxygen hemoglobin dissociation curve. The subjects returned to baseline oxygen saturations 1 week after discontinuation of Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate). A single intravenous administration of 20 mL of 10% Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) reportedly did not change oxygen saturations.


Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) has the chemical name thiosulfuric acid, disodium salt, pentahydrate. The chemical formula is Na2S2O3- 5H2O and the molecular weight is 248.17. The structural formula is:

Chemical Structure Figure


12.1 Mechanism of Action

Exposure to a high dose of cyanide can result in death within minutes due to the inhibition of cytochrome oxidase resulting in arrest of cellular respiration. Specifically, cyanide binds rapidly with cytochrome a3, a component of the cytochrome c oxidase complex in mitochondria. Inhibition of cytochrome a3 prevents the cell from using oxygen and forces anaerobic metabolism, resulting in lactate production, cellular hypoxia and metabolic acidosis. In massive acute cyanide poisoning, the mechanism of toxicity may involve other enzyme systems as well.

The synergy resulting from treatment of cyanide poisoning with the combination of sodium nitrite and Digestal is the result of differences in their primary mechanisms of action as antidotes for cyanide poisoning.

Sodium Nitrite

Sodium nitrite is thought to exert its therapeutic effect by reacting with hemoglobin to form methemoglobin, an oxidized form of hemoglobin incapable of oxygen transport but with high affinity for cyanide. Cyanide preferentially binds to methemoglobin over cytochrome a3, forming the nontoxic cyanomethemoglobin. Methemoglobin displaces cyanide from cytochrome oxidase, allowing resumption of aerobic metabolism. The chemical reaction is as follows:

NaNO2 + Hemoglobin → Methemoglobin

HCN + Methemoglobin → Cyanomethemoglobin

Vasodilation has also been cited to account for at least part of the therapeutic effect of sodium nitrite. It has been suggested that sodium nitrite-induced methemoglobinemia may be more efficacious against cyanide poisoning than comparable levels of methemoglobinemia induced by other oxidants. Also, sodium nitrite appears to retain some efficacy even when the formation of methemoglobin is inhibited by methylene blue.

Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate)

The primary route of endogenous cyanide detoxification is by enzymatic transulfuration to thiocyanate (SCN-), which is relatively nontoxic and readily excreted in the urine. Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) is thought to serve as a sulfur donor in the reaction catalyzed by the enzyme rhodanese, thus enhancing the endogenous detoxification of cyanide in the following chemical reaction:

12. 2 Pharmacodynamics

In dogs, pretreatment with Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) to achieve a steady state level of 2 µmol/mL increased the rate of conversion of cyanide to thiocyanate over 30-fold.

12.3 Pharmacokinetics

Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate)

Thiosulfate taken orally is not systemically absorbed. Most of the thiosulfate is oxidized to sulfate or is incorporated into endogenous sulphur compounds; a small proportion is excreted through the kidneys. Approximately 20-50% of exogenously administered thiosulfate is eliminated unchanged via the kidneys. After an intravenous injection of 1 g Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) in patients, the reported serum thiosulfate half-life was approximately 20 minutes. However, after an intravenous injection of a substantially higher dose of Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) (150 mg/kg, that is, 9 g for 60 kg body weight) in normal healthy men, the reported elimination half-life was 182 minutes.


The apparent terminal elimination half life and volume of distribution of cyanide, in a patient treated for an acute cyanide poisoning with sodium nitrite and Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) administration, have been reported to be 19 hours and 0.41 L/kg, respectively. Additionally, an initial elimination half life of cyanide has been reported to be approximately 1-3 hours.


After detoxification, in healthy subjects, thiocyanate is excreted mainly in the urine at a rate inversely proportional to creatinine clearance. In healthy subjects, the elimination half-life and volume of distribution of thiocyanate have been reported to be 2.7 days and 0.25 L/kg, respectively. However, in subjects with renal insufficiency the reported elimination half life is approximately 9 days.


13.1 Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility

Long-term studies in animals have not been performed to evaluate the potential carcinogenicity of Digestal.


The mutagenic potential of Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) has been examined in the in vitro Bacterial Reverse Mutation Assay (Ames Assay). Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) was not mutagenic in the absence of metabolic activation in S. typhimurium strains TA98, TA100, TA1535, TA537, or TA1538. Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) was not mutagenic in the presence of metabolic activation in strains TA 98, TA1535, TA1537, TA1538 or E. coli strain WP2.


Clinical studies to evaluate the potential effects of Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) intake on fertility of either males or females have not been reported.

There are no preclinical studies examining the effects of Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) on fertility.

13.2 Animal Pharmacology

Due to the extreme toxicity of cyanide, experimental evaluation of treatment efficacy has predominantly been completed in animal models. The efficacy of Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) treatment alone to counteract the toxicity of cyanide was initially reported in 1895 by Lang. The efficacy of amyl nitrite treatment in cyanide poisoning of the dog model was first reported in 1888 by Pedigo. Further studies in the dog model, which demonstrated the utility of sodium nitrite as a therapeutic intervention, were reported in 1929 by Mladoveanu and Gheorghiu. However, Hugs and Chen et al. independently reported upon the superior efficacy of the combination of sodium nitrite and Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) in 1932-1933. Treatment consisted of intravenously administered 22.5 mg/kg (half the lethal dose) sodium nitrite or 1 g/kg Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) alone or in sequence immediately after subcutaneous injection of sodium cyanide into dogs over a range of doses. Subsequent doses of 10 mg/kg sodium nitrite and/or 0.5 g/kg Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) were administered when clinical signs or symptoms of poisoning persisted or reappeared. Either therapy administered alone increased the dose of sodium cyanide required to cause death, and when administered together, sodium nitrite and Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) resulted in a synergistic effect in raising the lethal dose of sodium cyanide. The combined therapy appeared to have reduced efficacy when therapy was delayed until signs of poisoning (e.g. convulsions) appeared; however, other investigators have reported survival in dogs that were administered antidotal treatment after respiratory arrest had occurred.

Animal studies conducted in other species (e.g., rat, guinea pig, sheep, pigeon and cat) have also supported a synergistic effect of intravenous sodium nitrite and Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) in the treatment of cyanide poisoning.

While intravenous injection of sodium nitrite and Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) was effective in reversing the effects of lethal doses of cyanide in dogs, intramuscular injection of sodium nitrite, with or without Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate), was found not to be effective in the same setting.


The human data supporting the use of sodium nitrite for cyanide poisoning consists primarily of published case reports. There are no randomized controlled clinical trials. Nearly all the human data describing the use of Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) report its use in conjunction with sodium nitrite. Dosing recommendations for humans have been based on theoretical calculations of antidote detoxifying potential, extrapolation from animal experiments, and a small number of human case reports.

There have been no human studies to prospectively and systematically evaluate the safety of Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) or sodium nitrite in humans. Available human safety information is based largely on anecdotal case reports and case series of limited scope.


Each Digestal (Sodium Thiosulfate) carton (NDC 60267-705-50) consists of the following:
