Special Precautions
Folic acid alone is improper therapy in the treatment of pernicious anemia and other megaloblastic anemia where vitamin B12 is deficient.
Where anemia exists, its nature should be established and underlying causes determined. Folic acid especially in doses >0.1 mg daily may obscure pernicious anemia, in that hematologic remission may occur while neurological manifestations remain progressive. Concomitant parenteral therapy with vitamin B12 may be necessary in patients with vitamin B12 deficiency. Pernicious anemia is rare in women of childbearing age and the likelihood of its occurrence along with pregnancy is reduced by the impairment of fertility associated with vitamin B12 deficiency.
In older patients and those with conditions tending to lead to vitamin B12 depletion, serum B12 levels should be regularly assessed during treatment with Iberet-Folic 500.
Do not exceed the recommended dose.
There is the possibility of dark feces.
Do not give to patients who received repeated blood transfusion or non-iron deficiency anemia.
Long-term usage may cause iron accumulation.
