About Hemocare Baby Drop

Hemocare Baby Drop 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. 

Hemocare Baby Drop is a combination of two drugs, namely: Elemental Iron and Folic acid. Elemental iron helps with the transportation of oxygen throughout the body and the production of red blood cells. Folic acid works by boosting the production of red blood cells (RBC) in the body.  Together, Hemocare Baby Drop helps treat anaemia.

You are advised to take Hemocare Baby Drop for as long as your doctor has recommended it for you, depending upon your medical condition. You may experience constipation, dry mouth, loss of appetite, bloating, and diarrhoea in some cases. Most of these side effects of Hemocare Baby Drop do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

Hemocare Baby Drop is generally safe to consume during pregnancy. Let your doctor know if you are a nursing mother before starting Hemocare Baby Drop.

Hemocare Baby Drop contains Elemental Iron and Folic acid, primarily used to treat anaemia. Hemocare Baby Drop works by boosting the production of red blood cells (RBC) in the body.
Folic acid requirements are usually met from the diet, but additional supplements are required in its deficiency. Hemocare Baby Drop is advised to pregnant women who want to conceive as folate utilization is increased in pregnancy. It is generally given at least 4 weeks before pregnancy and is continued up to 3 months of pregnancy.
It is recommended not to take Hemocare Baby Drop along with tea, coffee, milk or eggs as the body might absorb less iron supplements if you take them together, which may reduce the effectiveness of Hemocare Baby Drop.
Hemocare Baby Drop is best absorbed if taken on an empty stomach. But in some patients, it causes an upset stomach if taken on an empty stomach. So, please take it as suggested by your doctor if you have an upset stomach problem.
If you are pregnant, it is necessary to maintain the right levels of folic acid to reduce the risk of neural tube defects as the baby's central nervous system develops. So, to avoid any defect, it is necessary to take it for the first three months as the neural tube is formed completely by this time.
