Warnings & Precautions

WARNINGS

ACCIDENTAL OVERDOSE OF IRON-CONTAINING PRODUCTS IS A LEADING CAUSE OF FATAL POISONING IN CHILDREN UNDER 6 YEARS OF AGE.

PRECAUTIONS

Folic acid alone is improper therapy in the treatment of pernicious anemia and other megaloblastic anemias where Vitamin B is deficient. Folic acid in doses above 0.1 mg daily may obscure pernicious anemia in that hematologic remission can occur while neurological manifestations progress.

General

Do not exceed recommended dose. The type of anemia and the underlying cause or causes should be determined before starting therapy with NuFera™. Since the anemia may be a result of a systemic disturbance, such as recurrent blood loss, the underlying cause or causes should be corrected, if possible.

Pediatric Use

Safety and effectiveness in pediatric population have not been established.

Geriatric Use

In general, dose selection in elderly population should be cautious and start at the lower end of the dosing range.

Overdosage & Contraindications

OVERDOSE

The clinical course of acute iron overdosage can be variable. Initial symptoms may include abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, tarry stools melena, hematemesis, hypotension, tachycardia, metabolic acidosis, hyperglycemia, dehydration, drowsiness, pallor, cyanosis, lassitude, seizures, shock and coma.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

NuFera™ is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients. Hemochromatosis and hemosiderosis are contraindicated to iron therapy.
