|Dipirona (metamizol sodio)|
DPS is the pharmacological abbreviation for Dipirona. It's an antiinflammatory medication used in Europe and Latin America but has been removed from the market in the U.S.
You'll notice that the physician ordered "previa toma de TA." This is because this medication is notorious for lowering the blood pressure upon administration (the main reason it was pulled from the market in the U.S.). It is also usually followed by "lento y diluido" because it will sclerose the vein if not diluted before injection.
