    USES :

    Ferrous fumarate is a type of iron which is usually obtained from the foods. It is required for carrying oxygen to the tissues. Ferrous fumarate in the drug form is used for the treatment of iron deficiency anemia. Folic acid is a form of vitamin B which is obtained usually from the fruits and vegetables. It helps to prevent changes in the DNA that can lead to cancer. Folic acid, as a medicine is used to treat folic acid deficiency in the human body. It is used in the treatment of anemia of certain types (i.e. lack of red blood cells). In combination with other drugs, it is used to treat pernicious anemia (i.e. a severe form of anemia). Vitamin B12 is used to treat vitamin B12 deficiency. It is also used in the treatment of pernicious anemia. Vitamin B12 deficiency is seen in patients with fish tapeworm infestation, malignancy of pancreas or bowel and folic acid deficiency. Dioctyl sodium sulfosuccinate is used in treating constipation.

    How does the drug work?

    In the human body, ferrous fumarate releases the form of iron which helps in the synthesis of hemoglobin required for carrying oxygen. Folic acid gets converted to tetrahydrofolate in the human body. Tetrahydrofolate helps in the normal production of red blood cells, amino acids, DNA components and other molecules. Iron supplements also may benefit people with depression, fatigue, and Crohn’s disease (of the intestine). Vitamin B12 plays an important role in the cell growth, cell reproduction, hematopoiesis, and myelin synthesis (in the nerves). It works in conjugation with folic acid and enhances the synthesis of DNA. Vitamin B12 maintains the function of bone marrow and enhances the production of red blood cells. It is also required for the metabolism of carbohydrate, fat and protein. Deficiency of vitamin B12 can decrease the metabolism of folic acid and can lead to folic acid deficiency. Dioctyl sodium sulfosuccinate is a laxative which acts by inhibiting the absorption of fluid in the body.
