About Abdifer-XT Tablet 10's

Abdifer-XT Tablet 10's belongs to a class of medications called 'haematinics' primarily used to treat anaemia (deficiency of iron and haemoglobin). Iron deficiency occurs mainly due to poor diet, poor absorption of food or increased folate use in the body (in pregnancy). Anaemia is a condition in which the body does not have enough red blood cells to carry the adequate oxygen required to various body tissues. 

Abdifer-XT Tablet 10's is a combination of two drugs, namely: Elemental Iron and Folic acid.
