About ZINC SULPHATE+FERROUS ASCORBATE+FOLIC ACID

FERROUS ASCORBATE+FOLIC ACID+ZINC SULPHATE belongs to a class of 'nutritional supplements' primarily used to treat iron deficiency and its associated anaemia. Iron deficiency anaemia is a condition in which the body does not have enough red blood cells due to low iron levels.

FERROUS ASCORBATE+FOLIC ACID+ZINC SULPHATE contains Zinc Sulphate, Ferrous Ascorbate, and Folic acid. Zinc Sulphate is a mineral that promotes the growth and development of body tissues. Ferrous Ascorbate is an essential mineral that aids in producing red blood cells and transporting oxygen to body tissues. Folic acid helps form red blood cells and prevents and treats folate deficiency (low blood levels of folate).

Your doctor will decide the dosage based on your medical condition. In some cases, FERROUS ASCORBATE+FOLIC ACID+ZINC SULPHATE may cause side effects like nausea, diarrhoea, constipation, and stomach upset. These side effects do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if these side effects persist longer, please consult 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 FERROUS ASCORBATE+FOLIC ACID+ZINC SULPHATE. It is essential to seek medical advice before starting FERROUS ASCORBATE+FOLIC ACID+ZINC SULPHATE if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Drinking alcohol may affect iron absorption; therefore, it is advised to consult your doctor before using FERROUS ASCORBATE+FOLIC ACID+ZINC SULPHATE. FERROUS ASCORBATE+FOLIC ACID+ZINC SULPHATE should be given to children only when advised by the doctor.

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Iron deficiency anaemia: Iron deficiency anaemia is a condition caused due to low iron levels in which the body does not have enough red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to various body tissues. If the body has too little iron, it cannot make enough haemoglobin. Haemoglobin is the main protein in the red blood cells, responsible for carrying oxygen throughout the body. Symptoms include fatigue, shortness of breath, light-headedness, dizziness, fast heartbeat, brittle nails, and pale skin.
