PrimaCare ONE Indications
PrimaCare ONE is indicated to provide vitamin/mineral and essential fatty acid supplementation throughout pregnancy, during the postnatal period for both lactating and non-lactating mothers, and throughout the childbearing years. It is also useful for improving nutritional status prior to conception.
PrimaCare ONE Contraindications
PrimaCare ONE is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients.
PrimaCare ONE Warnings
Folic acid alone is improper therapy in the treatment of pernicious anemia and other megaloblastic anemias where vitamin B12 is deficient. Folic acid in doses above 1.0 mg daily may obscure pernicious anemia, in that hematologic remission can occur while neurological manifestations remain progressive.
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.
PrimaCare ONE Precautions
Pediatric Use: Safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients have 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.
PrimaCare ONE Adverse Reactions
Allergic sensitization has been reported following both oral and parenteral administration of folic acid.
