Were you looking for more information about Synagis? Synegist is a common misspelling of Synagis.
Available by prescription only, Synagis® (palivizumab) is a medication approved for preventing serious complications from occurring in infants and children who have a high risk for developing problems with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). This drug is usually given to children or infants who are 24 months old or younger who are born prematurely or have certain types of lung or heart disease.
Synagis comes as an injection that is given into a muscle once a month during RSV season, which is usually from November to April. Although this can be an effective drug for many children, it may not be the best choice for those with a clotting disorder, low blood platelet counts, or certain other medical problems.
