Ascorbic acid improves iron absorption. After ingestion masteron steroid iron absorption occurs predominantly in the distal small intestine. Absorption increases with a decrease in body iron stores.
Prophylaxis of iron deficiency states caused by pregnancy, lactation, acute and chronic blood loss, inadequate and unbalanced nutrition; during convalescence after long serious illness and the period of intensive growth, as well as reducing the absorption of iron in patients with chronic diarrhea.
: Hypersensitivity to the drug.
Iron absorption Violation (sideroahrestical anemia, lead anemia, pernicious anemia (a deficiency of vitamin B 12).
Diseases accompanied by accumulation of iron in the body (aplastic and hemolytic anemia, thalassemia, hemosiderosis, hemochromatosis). Condition after gastrectomy , bleeding, children up to 4 years.
Precautions : peptic ulcer and 12 duodenal ulcer.
Pregnancy and lactation
Drops masteron steroid can be used to treat anemia registered with iron deficiency and also for the prevention of iron deficiency during pregnancy and lactation.However, continuous monitoring is recommended by a doctor and regular blood tests.
Dosing and Administration
The drug is used inside to food. The duration of therapy is determined individually by your doctor. Adults – 2 tablets 3 times a day. Pregnancy (II and III trimester) and lactating women as a prophylactic measure recommended to take the same dose. Children from 4 to 12 years -. 1 tablet 3 times a day recommended to take a glass of water or fruit juice, preferably between meals (two hours before meals or one hour after a meal) for improving absorption. Also, the drug can be taken with food to reduce the occurrence of adverse gastrointestinal effects. Do not take pills with tea, coffee or milk, because they slow down the absorption of iron.
Gastralgia, nausea, vomiting, heartburn, constipation or diarrhea, decreased appetite, rarely allergic skin reactions.
symptoms – nausea, vomiting, diarrhea. If you suspect an overdose, it is necessary to conduct a study of serum iron and serum ferritin levels, gastric lavage, appoint into milk and raw egg to enhance the binding of iron ions in the gastrointestinal tract and their subsequent elimination. In the event of a significant excess of normal values of serum ferritin should be the appointment of iron chelator (deferoxamine).
Interaction with other drugs
when taken concomitantly with antacids Ferropleksa; kolestiraminom, methyldopa; preparations containing zinc, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, aluminum; antibiotics tetracycline, chloramphenicol, penicillamine, ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin, ofloxacin iron absorption worsens.
Simultaneous treatment with levothyroxine sodium ferric sulfate can lead to the formation of insoluble iron compounds thyroxin, which reduces the absorption of thyroxine. Therefore, masteron steroid patients with primary hypothyroidism receiving levothyroxine sodium should take levothyroxine sodium and iron with an interval of at least 2 hours, and should be checked regularly thyroid function. You can not assign along with other iron preparations, including for parenteral use, in order to avoid overdose.
Before starting iron therapy is necessary to make a study of serum iron, serum ferritin (ie, to confirm iron deficiency). Drug therapy should be performed before the normalization of the blood picture (8-12 weeks). Before the drug possible dark fecal staining, false-positive benzidine test. Note that tea drinking in large quantities reduces the absorption of iron ions in the gastrointestinal tract.
