Ferrous Phosphate uses


INDICATIONS AND USAGE

Non-pregnant Adults

For the treatment of iron deficiency and prevention of concomitant folic acid deficiency.

Pregnant Females

For the prevention and treatment of iron deficiency and to supply a maintenance dosage of folic acid.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Contraindicated in patients with pernicious anemia and in the rare instance of hypersensitivity to folic acid. Hemochromatosis and hemosiderosis are contraindications to iron therapy.

WARNING: Accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under 6. KEEP THIS PRODUCT OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. In case of accidental overdose, call a doctor or poison control center immediately.

PRECAUTION

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.

Drug Interactions

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.

Carcinogenesis

Adequate data are not available on long-term potential for carcinogenesis in animals and humans.

Pregnancy

Pregnancy Category A

Studies in pregnant women have not shown that the ingredients in Ferrous Phosphate 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, Ferrous Phosphate caplets should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed.

Nursing Mothers

Folic acid and ascorbic acid are excreted in breast milk.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

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.

OVERDOSAGE

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.
