HB SET Tablets (Ferrous ascorbate + Folic acid )
Table of Content
Anaemia is defined as a low haemoglobin concentration in blood, or less often, as a low haematocrit, the percentage of blood volume that consists of red blood cells.
Iron salts (e.g. ferrous ascorbate) are primarily required for the prophylaxis and treatment of iron deficiency anaemia. Iron is necessary for effective erythropoiesis, is a cofactor of several essential enzymes, including cytochromes, all of which are involved in electron transport. The ferrous form of inorganic iron is more readily absorbed. Ferrous ascorbate offers iron absorption of 43.7%.
Folic acid is required for synthesis of nucleoprotein, purine nucleotides and the metabolism of some amino acids, normal growth and cell reproduction, nucleoprotein synthesis and the maintenance of normal erythropoiesis.
Hb Set is indicated for the prevention and treatment of nutritional deficiency anaemia related to iron and folic acid. Hb Set is also indicated for the prevention and treatment of anaemia in pregnancy and lactation.
The dosage of Hb Set is one tablet per day, or as directed by the physician.
Hb Set is contraindicated in patients that are hypersensitive to ferrous ascorbate, folic acid, or to any other component of this formulation; and in patients with porphyria cutanea tarda, haemochromatosis and haemosiderosis, and haemolytic anaemia.
