IRON POLYMALTOSE COMPLEX + VITAMIN B COMPLEX + ZINC
This syrup is indicated for the treatment and prevention of Iron, Vitamin B complex and Zinc deficiencies, specially during pregnancy and lactation.
Iron & Vitamin Combined preparations
This syrup is the preparation of Iron, Vitamin B complex and Zinc. In this preparation, Iron is present as Iron (III) Hydroxide Polymaltose Complex. Iron (III) Hydroxide Polymaltose Complex facilitates a controlled absorption of the iron when it comes in contact with the mucosal cell surface. Due to non-ionic nature, this Iron (III) Hydroxide Polymaltose Complex is more stable than conventional Iron form.
Adults: 5 ml-10 ml (1-2 teaspoonful) 3 times daily or as recommended by the physician. Children: 5 ml (1 teaspoonful) 3 times daily or as recommended by the physician. Infants: 0.33 ml/kg body weight daily or as recommended by the physician.
Since Iron is complex bound, ionic interaction with foodstuff components (phytates, oxalates, tannin etc.) and concomitant administrations of medicaments (tetracyclines, antacids) are unlikely to occur.
It is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients of this product.
This syrup is generally well tolerated. However, a few side effects of oral Iron preparations, including nausea, vomiting, constipation or diarrhoea may occur.
Recommended in pregnancy & lactation
