Special Precautions
Anaemias should always be treated under the supervision of a doctor. If therapeutic success (increase in haemoglobin by about 2-3 g/dL after 3 weeks) is not achieved, treatment should be reconsidered.
Infections or tumours may cause anaemia. Since iron can be utilised only after correcting the primary disease, a benefit/risk evaluation is advisable
During treatment with Maltofer, there may be dark discolouration of the faeces (stools); however this is of no clinical relevance.
Maltofer chewable tablet contains 10 mg of sodium per tablet. This corresponds to 0.5% of the WHO-recommended maximum daily intake of 2 g of sodium for adults.
Effects on ability to drive and use machines: No relevant studies have been performed. However, it is unlikely that Maltofer has any effect on the ability to drive and use machines.
