What is Haematinic with Folic Acid?
Hematinic with Folic Acid is a combination medicine used to treat or prevent certain types of anemia (low red blood cells) caused by an iron or folate deficiency.
Hematinic with Folic Acid may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
Vitamins and minerals essential for normal erythropoiesis (haematinics) include iron, copper, cobalt, vitamins A, B12, B6, C, E, riboflavin and nicotinic acid. Deficiency of any of these substances may be associated with defective erythropoiesis, anaemia and associated morbidity, but iron, vitamin B12 and folate are the haematinics for which deficiency states manifest most often clinically. The maxim that anaemia is a symptom and not a diagnosis is nowhere more true than with respect to haematinic deficiency.
Anemia Caused by Reduced Red Cell Production
Underproduction anemia can be caused by a lack of hematinics (such as iron, folate, vitamin B12, vitamin A and riboflavin) and/or reduced bone marrow activity and is characterized by anemia with an inappropriately low reticulocyte count.
This medication is an iron supplement used to treat or prevent low blood levels of iron (such as those caused by anemia or pregnancy). Iron is an important mineral that the body needs to produce red blood cells and keep you in good health.
