Medical Editor: John P. Cunha, DO, FACOEP

Poly-Vi-Flor (multivitamin, iron and fluoride supplement) is used as a supplement to the diet of infants and children who do not receive adequate fluoride through drinking water. Poly-Vi-Flor is also used to prevent tooth decay in people treated with radiation, which may cause dryness of the mouth and increased risk of tooth decay. Common side effects include stomach upset, headache, or weakness.

The dose of Poly-Vi-Flor is 1.0 mL daily or as prescribed. It may be dropped directly into mouth with 'Safti- Dropper,' or mixed with cereal, fruit juice, or other food. Poly-Vi-Flor may interact with other drugs or supplements. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use. It is unknown if Poly-Vi-Flor is harmful to a fetus. Before taking this medication, tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment. Poly-Vi-Flor can pass into breast milk and may harm a nursing baby. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
