PRECAUTION

General:

Agemax acid, when administered as a single agent in doses above 0.1 mg daily, may obscure the detection of B12 deficiency (specifically, the administration of Agemax (Folic Acid) acid may reverse the hematologic manifestations of B12 deficiency, including pernicious anemia, while not addressing the neurological manifestations). Reduced folates may be less likely than Agemax (Folic Acid) acid to mask vitamin B12 deficiency. Folates therapy alone is inadequate for the treatment of B12 deficiency.

PATIENT INFORMATION

TaronTM is a prescription vitamin for use only under the direction and supervision of a licensed physician.

INTERACTIONS

Pyridoxine hydrochloride should not be given to patients receiving the drug levodopa, because the action of levodopa is antagonized by pyridoxine hydrochloride. However, pyridoxine hydrochloride may be used concurrently in patients receiving a preparation containing both carbidopa and levodopa.

Drugs which may interact with folate include:

  • Antiepileptic drugs (AED): The AED class including, but not limited to, phenytoin, carbamazepine, primidone, valproic acid, phenobarbital and lamotrigine have been shown to impair folate absorption and increase the metabolism of circulating folate. Additionally, concurrent use of Agemax (Folic Acid) acid has been associated with enhanced phenytoin metabolism, lowering the levels of this AED in the blood and allowing breakthrough seizures to occur.
  • Capecitabine: Folinic acid (5-formyltetrahydrofolate) may increase the toxicity of Capecitabine.
  • Cholestyramine: Reduces Agemax (Folic Acid) acid absorption and reduces serum folate levels.
  • Colestipol: Reduces Agemax (Folic Acid) acid absorption and reduces serum folate levels.
  • Cycloserine: Reduces Agemax (Folic Acid) acid absorption and reduces serum folate levels.
  • Dihydrofolate Reductase Inhibitors (DHFRI): DHFRIs block the conversion of Agemax (Folic Acid) acid to its active forms, and lower plasma and red blood cell folate levels. DHFRIs include aminopterin, methotrexate, pyrimethamine, triamterene, and trimethoprim.
  • Fluoxetine: Fluoxetine exerts a noncompetitive inhibition of the 5-methyltetrahydrofolate active transport in the intestine.
  • Isotretinoin: Reduced folate levels have occured in some patients taking isotretinoin.
  • Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs): NSAIDs have been shown to inhibit some folate dependent enzymes in laboratory experiments. NSAIDs include ibuprofen, naproxen, indomethacin and sulindac.
  • Oral Contraceptives: Serum folate levels may be depressed by oral contraceptive therapy.
  • Methylprednisolone: Reduced serum folate levels have been noted after treatment with methylprednisolone.
  • Pancreatic Enzymes: Reduced folate levels have occurred in some patients taking pancreatic extracts.
  • Pentamidine: Reduced folate levels have been seen with prolonged intravenous pentamidine.
  • Smoking and alcohol: Reduced serum folate levels have been noted.
  • Sulfasalazine: Inhibits the absorption and metabolism of Agemax (Folic Acid) acid.
  • Metformin treatment in patients with type 2 diabetes decreases serum folate.
  • Warfarin can produce significant impairment in folate status after a 6 - month therapy.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

Allergic sensitization has been reported following both oral and parenteral administration of Agemax (Folic Acid) acid, as well as possibly the use of other forms of folates - including reduced folates. Paresthesia, somnolence, nausea and headaches have been reported with pyridoxine hydrochloride.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Three (3) tablets per day: One (1) tablet every eight hours beginning with the multivitamin (white-coated, oval tablet debossed with “T569”) followed by thevitamin B6 tablets (white, round tablets debossed with “B6”).

Agemax (L-Lysine) (abbreviated as Lys or K) is an О±-amino acid with the chemical formula HO2CCH(CH2)4NH2. This amino acid is an essential amino acid, which means that humans cannot synthesize it. Its codons are AAA and AAG.L-Lysine is a base, as are arginine and histidine. The Оµ-amino group often participates in hydrogen bonding and as a general base in catalysis. Common posttranslational modifications include methylation of the Оµ-amino group, giving methyl-, dimethyl-, and trimethyllysine. The latter occurs in calmodulin. Other posttranslational modifications include acetylation. Collagen contains hydroxylysine which is derived from lysine by lysyl hydroxylase. O-Glycosylation of lysine residues in the endoplasmic reticulum or Golgi apparatus is used to mark certain proteins for secretion from the cell.

Indication: Supplemental Agemax (L-Lysine) has putative anti-herpes simplex virus activity. There is preliminary research suggesting that it may have some anti-osteoporotic activity.

Insures the adequate absorption of calcium; helps form collagen ( which makes up bone cartilage & connective tissues); aids in the production of antibodies, hormones & enzymes. Recent studies have shown that Lysine may be effective against herpes by improving the balance of nutrients that reduce viral growth. A deficiency may result in tiredness, inability to concentrate, irritability, bloodshot eyes, retarded growth, hair loss, anemia & reproductive problems.
