Summary:

Orthoplex Heme 100 is a potent iron supplement formulated to be beneficial in conditions associated with iron support, low folate status and low vitamin B12 status. By far the most haematological disturbance from impaired nutrition is nutritional anaemia due to iron, vitamin B12 and folate deficiency.

Iron insufficiency is associated with vague symptoms of tiredness, headache, irritability, or depression. Tachycardia, shortness of breath, angina pain, tinnitus, loss or changes in appetite, nausea, fatigue, abdominal discomfort, constipation or diarrhoea, dryness and soreness or tongue or mouth can occur as the deficiency becomes chronic. Physical examination may reveal dry rough skin, ridges on fingernails, dry and cracked lips and reddening of the tip of the tongue.

 

Dosage:

Adults: Take 1 tablet three times daily after meals, or as prescribed.

 

Precautions:

Iron supplements taken with carbidopa may interfere with the activity of the drug. Iron may also reduce the absorption/activity of some antibiotics.
