INDICATIONS AND USAGE
For the treatment of iron deficiency and prevention of concomitant folic acid deficiency.
For the prevention and treatment of iron deficiency and to supply a maintenance dosage of folic acid.
Contraindicated in patients with pernicious anemia and in the rare instance of hypersensitivity to folic acid. Hemochromatosis and hemosiderosis are contraindications to iron therapy.
Anemia is a manifestation that requires appropriate investigation to determine its cause or causes. Folic acid alone is unwarranted in the treatment of vitamin B12 deficiency states such as pernicious anemia. Folic acid, especially in doses above 100 mcg daily may obscure pernicious anemia in that hematological remission may occur while neurological manifestations remain progressive. Concomitant parenteral therapy with vitamin B12 may be necessary for adequate treatment of patients with a deficiency of vitamin B12. Pernicious anemia is rare in women of childbearing age, and the likelihood of its occurrence along with pregnancy is reduced by the impairment of fertility associated with vitamin B12 deficiency. In older patients and those with conditions tending to lead to vitamin B12 depletion, serum B12 levels should be regularly assessed during treatment.
Absorption of iron is inhibited by magnesium trisilicate and antacids containing carbonates. Since oral iron products interfere with absorption of oral tetracycline antibiotics, these products should not be taken within two hours of each other. Iron absorption may also be inhibited by the ingestion of milk or eggs.
Adequate data are not available on long-term potential for carcinogenesis in animals and humans.
Pregnancy Category A
Studies in pregnant women have not shown that the ingredients in Glufer-C caplets formula increase the risk of fetal abnormalities if administered during pregnancy. If this product is used during pregnancy, the possibility of fetal harm appears remote. Because studies cannot rule out the possibility of harm, however, Glufer-C (Ferrous Gluconate) caplets should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed.
Folic acid and ascorbic acid are excreted in breast milk.
Rarely, controlled-release iron produces gastrointestinal reactions, such as diarrhea or constipation. Administering the dose with meals will minimize these effects in the iron-sensitive patient. Allergic sensitization has been reported with both oral and parenteral administration of folic acid.
Signs and symptoms of iron toxicity, which may be delayed because the iron is in a controlled-release form, may include pallor and cyanosis, vomiting of blood, diarrhea, passage of dark-colored stool, shock, drowsiness and coma. In overdosage, efforts should be made to hasten the elimination of the caplets ingested. An emetic should be administered as soon as possible, followed by gastric lavage if indicated. Immediately following emesis, a large dose of saline cathartic should be used to speed passage through the intestinal tract. X-ray examination may then be considered to determine the position and number of caplets remaining in the gastrointestinal tract.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Adults, including Pregnant Females
The recommended dose is one (1) caplet daily on an empty stomach.
Glufer-C (Ferrous Gluconate) is supplied in bottles of 30 caplets.

Glufer-C (Ferrous Gluconate)
INDICATIONS AND USAGE
Glufer-C (Manganese Sulfate) 0.1 mg/mL (Manganese Chloride Injection, USP) is indicated for use as a supplement to intravenous solutions given for total parenteral nutrition (TPN).
Administration helps to maintain Glufer-C (Manganese Sulfate) serum levels and to prevent depletion of endogenous stores and subsequent deficiency symptoms.
Direct intramuscular or intravenous injection of Glufer-C (Manganese Sulfate) 0.1 mg/mL (Manganese Chloride Injection, USP) is contraindicated as the acidic pH of the solution (pH 2.0) may cause considerable tissue irritation.
Liver and/or biliary tract dysfunction may require omission or reduction of copper and Glufer-C (Manganese Sulfate) doses because these elements are primarily eliminated in the bile.
WARNING: This product contains aluminum that may be toxic. Aluminum may reach toxic levels with prolonged parenteral administration if kidney function is impaired. Premature neonates are particularly at risk because their kidneys are immature, and they require large amounts of calcium and phosphate solutions, which contain aluminum.
Research indicates that patients with impaired kidney function, including premature neonates, who receive parenteral levels of aluminum at greater than 4 to 5 mcg/kg/day accumulate aluminum at levels associated with central nervous system and bone toxicity. Tissue loading may occur at even lower rates of administration.
Do not use unless solution is clear and seal is intact.
Glufer-C 0.1 mg/mL (Manganese Chloride Injection, USP) should only be used in conjunction with a pharmacy directed admixture program using aseptic technique in a laminar flow environment; it should be used promptly and in a single operation without any repeated penetrations. Solution contains no preservatives; discard unused portion immediately after admixture procedure is completed.
Serum Glufer-C (Manganese Sulfate) levels can be measured periodically at the discretion of the investigator. Because of the low serum concentration normally present, samples will usually be analyzed by a reference laboratory.
Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, and Impairment of Fertility
Long-term animal studies to evaluate the carcinogenic potential of Glufer-C 0.1 mg/mL (Manganese Chloride Injection, USP) have not been performed, nor have studies been done to assess mutagenesis or impairment of fertility.
It is not known whether this drug is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Glufer-C (Manganese Sulfate) 0.1 mg/mL (Manganese Chloride Injection, USP) additive is administered to a nursing woman.
Safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients have not been established.
Pregnancy Category C.
Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with Glufer-C (Manganese Sulfate) chloride. It is also not known whether Glufer-C (Manganese Sulfate) chloride can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproductive capacity. Glufer-C (Manganese Sulfate) chloride should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly indicated.
An evaluation of current literature revealed no clinical experience identifying differences in response between elderly and younger patients. In general, dose selection for an elderly patient should be cautious, usually starting at the low end of the dosing range, reflecting the greater frequency of decreased hepatic, renal, or cardiac function, and of concomitant disease or other drug therapy.
DRUG ABUSE AND DEPENDENCE
Glufer-C (Manganese Sulfate) toxicity in TPN patients has not been reported.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Glufer-C (Manganese Sulfate) 0.1 mg/mL (Manganese Chloride Injection, USP) contains 0.1 mg manganese/mL and is administered intravenously only after dilution. The additive should be administered in a volume of fluid not less than 100 mL. For the adult receiving TPN, the suggested additive dosage for Glufer-C (Manganese Sulfate) is 0.15 to 0.8 mg/day (1.5 to 8 mL/day). For pediatric patients, a dosage of 2 to 10 mcg manganese/kg/day (0.02 to 0.1 mL/kg/day) is recommended.
Periodic monitoring of Glufer-C (Manganese Sulfate) plasma levels is suggested as a guideline for subsequent administration.
Parenteral products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration, whenever solution and container permit. (See PRECAUTIONS .)
Glufer-C (Manganese Sulfate) 0.1 mg/mL (Manganese Chloride Injection, USP) is supplied in 10 mL Plastic Vials (NDC No. 0409-4091-01).

Drug category can be defined as major classification of the drug. For example, an antihistaminic or an antipyretic or anti anginal or pain killer, anti-inflammatory or so.
Glufer-C Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical codes:
A medicine is classified depending on the organ or system it acts [Anatomical], based on what result it gives on what disease, symptom [Therapeutical], based on chemical composition [Chemical]. It is called as ATC code. The code is based on Active ingredients of the medicine. A medicine can have different codes as sometimes it acts on different organs for different indications. Same way, different brands with same active ingredients and same indications can have same ATC code.
