Drug Use Information

Drug Use Information
The drug use information is a summary and does NOT have all possible information about this product. This information does not assure that this product is safe, effective, or appropriate. This information is not individual medical advice and does not substitute for the advice of a health care professional. Always ask a health care professional for complete information about this product and your specific health needs.

  • Folic acid is the man-made form of folate. Folate is a B-vitamin naturally found in some foods. It is needed to form healthy cells, especially red blood cells. Folic acid supplements may come in different forms (such as L-methylfolate, levomefolate, methyltetrahydrofolate). They are used to treat or prevent low folate levels. Low folate levels can lead to certain types of anemia. Conditions that can cause low folate levels include poor diet, pregnancy, alcoholism, liver disease, certain stomach/intestinal problems, kidney dialysis, among others. Women of childbearing age should receive adequate amounts of folic acid either through their diet or supplements to prevent infant spinal cord birth defects.
  • Niacinamide (nicotinamide) is a form of vitamin B3 (niacin) and is used to prevent and treat niacin deficiency (pellagra). Niacin deficiency can cause diarrhea, confusion (dementia), tongue redness/swelling, and peeling red skin. Niacinamide is often used instead of niacin because it causes fewer side effects (e.g., flushing). Unlike niacin, niacinamide does not help correct blood fat levels and cannot be substituted for niacin if you are being treated for a blood fat problem (e.g., high cholesterol). Niacin deficiency may happen as a result of poor diet, certain medical conditions (e.g., alcohol abuse, malabsorption syndrome, Hartnup disease), or long-term use of certain medications (e.g., isoniazid). It is best to get your vitamins from healthy foods. A multivitamin may be recommended by your doctor instead of niacinamide because poor diet usually causes deficiencies in more than one vitamin. Vitamins help to support the body's ability to make and break down natural substances (metabolism) and are needed for good health.
  • Cyanocobalamin is a man-made form of vitamin B12 used to treat low levels (deficiency) of this vitamin. Vitamin B12 helps your body use fat and carbohydrates for energy and make new protein. It is also important for normal blood, cells, and nerves. Most people get enough vitamin B12 in their diet, but a deficiency may occur in certain health conditions (e.g., poor nutrition, stomach/intestinal problems, infection, cancer). Serious vitamin B12 deficiency may result in anemia, stomach problems, and nerve damage.
  • This medication is used to treat symptoms caused by too much stomach acid such as heartburn, upset stomach, or indigestion. It is an antacid that works by lowering the amount of acid in the stomach. Check the ingredients on the label even if you have used the product before. The manufacturer may have changed the ingredients. Also, products with similar names may contain different ingredients meant for different purposes. Taking the wrong product could harm you.
  • Drug uses not available
  • This medication is used to treat and prevent diaper rash and other minor skin irritations (e.g., burns, cuts, scrapes). It works by forming a barrier on the skin to protect it from irritants/moisture.
  • Drug uses not available
  • This medication is an iron supplement used to treat or prevent low blood levels of iron (e.g., for anemia or during pregnancy). Iron is an important mineral that the body needs to produce red blood cells and keep you in good health.
  • This medication is a mineral supplement used to prevent and treat low amounts of magnesium in the blood. Some brands are also used to treat symptoms of too much stomach acid such as stomach upset, heartburn, and acid indigestion. Magnesium is very important for the normal functioning of cells, nerves, muscles, bones, and the heart. Usually, a well-balanced diet provides normal blood levels of magnesium. However, certain situations cause your body to lose magnesium faster than you can replace it from your diet. These situations include treatment with water pills (diuretics such as furosemide, hydrochlorothiazide), a poor diet, alcoholism, or other medical conditions (e.g., severe diarrhea/vomiting, stomach/intestinal absorption problems, poorly controlled diabetes).

Venexa FE is indicated for the treatment of iron deficiency anemia

and folate deficiency as in extended convalescence, menorrhagia, pregnancy, puberty, excessive

blood loss and advanced age. Also for treatment of condition in which iron deficiency and

vitamin C deficiency occur together, along with a deficient intake or increased need for

B-Complex vitamins in chronic and acute illness, as well as cases of metabolic stress, and in



This product is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to

any of its ingredients; also, all iron compounds are contraindicated in patients with

hemosiderosis, hemochromatosis, or hemolytic anemias. Pernicious anemia is a

contraindication, as folic acid may obscure its signs and symptoms.


Accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children

under 6. Keep this product out of reach of children. In case of accidental overdose, call a doctor

or poison control center immediately.

Administration of folic acid alone is improper therapy for pernicious anemia and other

megaloblastic anemias in which vitamin B12 is deficient.

Precaustion Section

Folic acid in doses above 0.1 mg daily may obscure pernicious anemia, in that hematologic

remission can occur while neurological manifestations remain progressive.

There is a potential danger in administering folic acid to patients with undiagnosed anemia,

since folic acid may obscure the diagnosis of pernicious anemia by alleviating the hematologic

manifestations of the disease while allowing the neurologic complications to progress. This may

result in severe nervous system damage before the correct diagnosis is made. Adequate doses

of vitamin B12 may prevent, halt, or improve the neurologic changes caused by pernicious


The patient’s medical conditions and consumption of other drugs, herbs, and/or supplements

should be considered.
For use on the order of a healthcare practitioner.

Call your doctor about side effects. To report side effects, call PureTek Corporation at

1-877-921-7873 or FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088 or www.fda.gov/medwatch.

Drug Interactions:

Venexa FE is not recommended for and should not be given to patients receiving levodopa

because the action of levodopa is antagonized by pyridoxine. There is a possibility of increased

bleeding due to pyridoxine interaction with anticoagulants (e.g., Aspirin, Heparin, or Clopidogrel).

Adverse Reactions:

Folic Acid: Allergic sensitizations have been reported following both oral and parenteral

administration of folic acid.

Ferrous Fumarate: Gastrointestinal disturbances (anorexia, nausea, diarrhea, constipation)

occur occasionally, but are usually mild and may subside with continuation of therapy. Although

the absorption of iron is best when taken between meals, giving Venexa FE after meals may

control occasional gastrointestinal disturbances. Venexa FE is best absorbed when taken at


Adverse reactions have been reported with specific vitamins and minerals but generally at levels

substantially higher than those contained herein. However, allergic and idiosyncratic reactions

are possible at lower levels. Iron, even at the usual recommended levels, has been associated

with gastrointestinal intolerance in some patients.


Iron: Signs and Symptoms: Iron is toxic. Acute overdosage of iron may cause nausea and

vomiting and, in severe cases, cardiovascular collapse and death. Other symptoms include

pallor and cyanosis, melena, shock, drowsiness, and coma. The estimated overdose of orally

ingested iron is 300 mg/kg body weight. When overdoses are ingested by children, severe

reactions, including fatalities, have resulted. Venexa FE should be stored beyond the reach of

children to prevent against accidental iron poisoning. Keep this and all other drugs out of

reach of children.


For specific therapy, exchange transfusion and chelating agents should be used. For general management, perform gastric lavage with sodium bicarbonate solution or milk. Administer intravenous fluids and electrolytes and use oxygen.
