WARNING: 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.

You should contact your healthcare provider for medical advice about adverse events. To report a serious adverse event, contact US Pharmaceutical Corporation, P.O. Box 360465, Decatur, GA 30036.

INDICATIONS: For the treatment of iron deficiency anemia and folate deficiency as normally found in chronic extended convalescence, menorrhagia, pregnancy, puberty, excessive blood loss, and advanced age. Also for correction of conditions in which iron deficiency and vitamin C deficiency occur together, along with a deficient intake or increased need for B-Complex vitamins in chronic and acute illness, as well as cases of metabolic stress, and in convalescence.

CONTRAINDICATIONS: HEMOCYTE PLUS® CAPSULES are contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients. Also, all iron compounds are contraindicated in patients with hemosiderosis, hemochromatosis, and hemolytic anemias. Pernicious anemia is a contraindication, as folic acid may obscure its signs and symptoms.In case of accidental overdose call a doctor or poison control center immediately. Iron is toxic. When overdoses are ingested by children, severe reactions, including fatalities, have resulted. HEMOCYTE PLUS® CAPSULES should be stored beyond the reach of children to protect against accidental iron poisoning. Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children.

PRECAUTIONS: General: Folic acid in doses above 0.1 mg - 0.4 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 have not been established.

ADVERSE REACTION: Allergic reactions have been reported following both oral and parenteral administration of folic acid. Gastrointestinal disturbances (anorexia, nausea, diarrhea, constipation) occur occasionally, but are usually mild and subside with continuation of therapy and physician encouragement. Although the absorption of iron is best when taken between meals, occasional G.l. disturbances may be controlled by giving HEMOCYTE PLUS® CAPSULES shortly after meals.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION: Adults only: 1 capsule daily, between meals, orally. Do not exceed recommended dosage. Do not administer to children.
