Neotrace-4 (zinc, copper, manganese, chromium) is a solution of four trace elements for use as an additive for total parenteral nutrition in neonates, to help maintain plasma levels of zinc, copper, manganese and chromium and to prevent depletion of endogenous stores of these trace elements and subsequent deficiency symptoms. This medication may be available in generic form. Side effects are uncommon; consult your doctor.
The suggested dosage ranges for the four trace elements in Neotrace-4 in neonates and pediatric patients are: Zinc: For full term infants and children up to 5 years of age, 100 mcg zinc/kg/day. For premature infants up to 3 kg in body weight, 300 mcg zinc/kg/day. Copper: For pediatric patients, the additive dosage level is 20 mcg copper/kg/day. Manganese: For pediatric patients, a dosage of 2 to 10 mcg manganese/kg/day. Chromium: For pediatric patients, the additive dosage is 0.14 to 0.20 mcg/kg/day. Neotrace-4 may interact with other drugs. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements your child uses. During pregnancy, Neotrace-4 should be given only if prescribed. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
