About Hemejern 12 mg Tablet 10's

Hemejern 12 mg Tablet 10's belongs to a class of 'haematinics,' primarily used to treat iron deficiency and 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 (during pregnancy). Anaemia is a condition in which the body does not have enough red blood cells for carrying the adequate oxygen required to various body tissues.

Hemejern 12 mg Tablet 10's contains 'Elemental Iron,' an essential body mineral. It is a nutritional supplement required by the red blood cells to carry oxygen to other body cells and tissues. By combining with a protein in the blood called haemoglobin, iron helps carry adequate oxygen to various body parts. Hemejern 12 mg Tablet 10's also has immunity-enhancing, anti-carcinogenic (preventing cancer), and cognition-enhancing properties.

Your doctor will decide the dosage based on your medical condition. In some cases, it may cause side effects like constipation, diarrhoea, stomach cramps, dark stools, loss of appetite, and upset stomach. Most of these side effects of Hemejern 12 mg Tablet 10's do not require any medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if these side effects persist longer, please consult your doctor.

If you are allergic to Hemejern 12 mg Tablet 10's or its inactive components, please inform your doctor. Brief your medical history to the doctor if you have any heart/kidney/liver diseases, iron overload disorders like hemochromatosis/hemosiderosis, and intestinal problems (ulcer, colitis) before starting Hemejern 12 mg Tablet 10's. Consult your doctor before taking Hemejern 12 mg Tablet 10's if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Drinking alcohol may affect iron absorption; therefore, it is advised to consult your doctor if you have any concerns. Iron supplements are safe to use in children only when suggested by a doctor.
