Precautions

WARNINGS

Close tightly and keep out of reach of children. Contains Iron, which can be harmful or fatal to children in large doses. In case of accidental overdose, seek professional assistance or contact a Poison Control Center immediately.

PRECAUTIONS

The suggested dose should not be exceeded since dental fluorosis may result from continued ingestion of large amounts of fluoride.

When prescribing VI-FLOR™ products:

1. Determine the fluoride content of the drinking water from all major sources.

2. Make sure the child is not receiving significant amounts of fluoride from other sources such as medications and swallowed toothpaste.

3. Periodically check to make sure that the child does not develop significant dental fluorosis.

POLY-VI-FLOR (multivitamin, iron and fluoride) 0.25 mg with Iron drops should be dispensed in the original plastic container, since contact with glass leads to instability and precipitation. (The amount of sodium fluoride in the 50 mL size is well below the maximum to be dispensed at one time according to recommendations of the American Dental Association.)
