Full Prescribing Info
Overdosage
In cases of overdose, iron accumulation or intoxication is unlikely with Maltofer due to the low toxicity of iron(III)-hydroxide polymaltose complex (i.e., in mice or rats: lethal dose, 50% (LD50) >2,000 mg Fe/kg body weight) and controlled uptake of iron. No cases of accidental poisoning with fatal outcome have been reported.
