Aritone Precaution

Administering folic acid may obscure pernicious anemia. This IV Injection doses recommended are insufficient to correct severe vitamin deficiency states and may be insufficient in patients with markedly increased vitamin requirements. In patients receiving total parenteral nutrition (TPN), routine supplementation with both fat-soluble and water-soluble vitamins is recommended to prevent deficiency states and to obviate the need to speculate on individual vitamin status. Daily vitamin requirements must be calculated to avoid over dosage and toxic effects, especially with regards to vitamins A & D and particularly in pediatric patients. In patients for whom total parenteral nutrition is continued for prolonged periods (months or years), periodic monitoring of blood vitamin levels should be considered. To prevent excessive excretion of water-soluble vitamins and for reasons of safety, daily dosage should be administered over a number of hours.

Interaction

Vitamin B6 can reduce the effect of levodopa. Folic acid may lower the serum concentration of phenytoin. Other drugs should not be added to this IV Injection mixed with fat-soluble vitamins, due to the possibility of physical incompatibilities.
