One capsule daily. In more severe cases, 2 capsules a day may be required or as directed by the physician.
Generally well tolerated. However, a few allergic reactions may be seen.
Care should be taken in patients who may develop iron overload, such as those with haemochromatosis, haemolytic anemia or red cell aplasia. Iron chelates with tetracycline and absorption may be impaired.
No such drug interactions have been reported.
Pregnancy & Breastfeeding use
Recommended. Use of any drug during the first trimester of pregnancy should be avoided if possible. Thus administration of iron during the first trimester requires definite evidence of iron deficiency. Prophylaxis of iron deficiency where inadequate diet calls for supplementary zinc and folic acid is justified during the remainder of pregnancy.
Animet is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients.
Symptoms of carbonyl iron include decreased energy, nausea, abdominal pain, tarry stool; a weak, rapid pulse, fever; coma; seizures.
Store in a dry place below 25°C. Protect from light.
