Special Precautions
Iron salts should not be given to patients receiving repeated blood transfusion or to patients with anemias not produced by iron deficiency. Oral iron should not be administered concomitantly with parenteral iron. Concomitant administration of tetracyclines and some antacids may diminish iron absorption. If treatment with both drugs is required, iron salts and tetracyclines should be administered 2-3 hours apart.
Pyridoxine Hydrochloride: Long term administration of large doses of pyridoxine is associated with development of severe peripheral neuropathies.
Folic Acid: Caution is advised in patients who may have folate-dependent tumors. Folic acid alone is improper therapy in the treatment of pernicious anemia and other megaloblastic anemias where vitamin B12 is deficient.
