Ferrous Sulfate + Folic Acid



This haematinic mixture is used to treat and prevent iron and folic acid deficiency, especially during pregnancy and breastfeeding.



Iron is a vital component of the human body, as it is required for the synthesis of haemoglobin and the oxidative activities of living tissues. The duodenum and upper jejunum are the main sources of iron absorption. The ferrous salt is three times more easily absorbed than the ferric salt. The adult male’s daily requirement is only 13 g/kg (approximately 1 mg), whereas the menstrual female’s daily requirement is around 21 g/kg (about 1.4 mg). During the second two trimesters of pregnancy, daily requirements rise to around 80 g/kg (5 to 6 mg). Folic acid is a critical component of cell division; without it, division will halt. Normal erythropoiesis necessitates a sufficient amount of folic acid.


Dosage & Administration

1 (one) capsule a day, throughout pregnancy and lactation. Some patients may need a higher dose because of dietary or other factors.



When iron salts and tetracyclines are taken at the same time by mouth, their absorption is reduced. An antacid containing magnesium trisilicate may also reduce iron salt absorption.



Contraindicated in patients who have had several blood transfusions or who have anemias that aren’t caused by iron deficit unless iron deficiency is also present.


Side Effects

Because iron salts are astringent, they might induce gastrointestinal irritation. The symptoms of nausea and epigastric discomfort are dose-dependent.


Precautions & Warnings

Iron chelates may interfere with the absorption of antacids and tetracyclines if taken at the same time. Tetracycline, on the other hand, should not be taken during pregnancy.


Therapeutic Class
