Nexa™ Select capsules are indicated to provide vitamin/mineral and plant-based DHA supplementation throughout pregnancy, during the postnatal period for both lactating and non-lactating mothers, and throughout the childbearing years. Nexa™ Select may be useful in improving the nutritional status of women prior to conception.
Nexa™ Select capsules are contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients. Do not take this product if you are presently taking mineral oil, unless directed by a doctor.
Accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under 6. KEEP THIS PRODUCT OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN. In case of accidental overdose, call a doctor or poison control center immediately.
Ingestion of more than 3 grams of omega-3 fatty acids (such as DHA) per day has been shown to have potential antithrombotic effects, including an increased bleeding time and International Normalized Ratio (INR). Administration of omega-3 fatty acids should be avoided in patients taking anticoagulants and in those known to have an inherited or acquired predisposition to bleeding.
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 mg daily may obscure pernicious anemia in that hematologic remission can occur while neurological manifestations progress.
Allergic sensitization has been reported following both oral and parenteral administration of folic acid.
Exercise caution to ensure that the prescribed dosage of DHA does not exceed 1 gram (1000 mg) per day.
Nexa Select Dosage and Administration
Before, during and/or after pregnancy, one softgel capsule daily or as directed by a physician.
