INDICATIONS

PreCare Chewables are indicated to provide vitamin and mineral supplementation throughout pregnancy and during the postnatal period--for both lactating and non-lactating mothers. They are also useful for improving nutritional status prior to conception.

Contraindications

This product is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients.

Warnings

Folic acid alone is improper therapy in the treatment of pernicious anemia and other megaloblastic anemias where Vitamin B 12 is deficient.

Accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under 6. Keep this product out of reach of children. In case of accidental overdose, call a doctor or poison control center immediately.

Precautions

Folic acid in doses above 1.0 mg daily may obscure pernicious anemia, in that hematologic remission can occur while neurological manifestations remain progressive.

PEDIATRIC USE

Safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients has not been established.

GERIATRIC USE

Clinical studies on this product have not been performed to determine whether elderly subjects respond differently from younger subjects. In general, dose selection for an elderly patient should be cautious, usually starting at the low end of the dosing range, reflecting the greater frequency of decreased hepatic, renal, or cardiac function, and of concomitant disease or other drug therapy.

Adverse Reactions

Allergic sensitization has been reported following both oral and parenteral administration of folic acid.

Dosage and Administration

Usual dosage is one tablet daily, or as prescribed by a physician.
