HEMOTAG TABLET is a combination of Cyanocobalamin, Folic acid and Sodium feredetate which belongs to the group of medicines called Haematinics. It is used for the treatment of anaemia caused by iron deficiency. Iron deficiency anaemia is when your body can't produce enough haemoglobin (a substance in red blood cells that enables them to carry oxygen), due to insufficient iron.
HEMOTAG TABLET is not recommended for use in patients with hemochromatosis, hemosiderosis or in patients receiving repeated blood transfusions or parenteral iron therapy. HEMOTAG TABLET should be given to children only after consulting your doctor about it. Before taking HEMOTAG TABLET, inform your doctor if you have hemolytic anaemia, iron-storage or iron-absorption diseases, gastrointestinal diseases or folate-dependent tumours.
HEMOTAG TABLET should only be used in pregnant or breastfeeding women if your doctor believes it is necessary. The most common side effects of taking HEMOTAG TABLET are hypersensitivity, mild diarrhoea, swollen stomach, gas, loss of appetite and nausea. Consult your doctor if any of your symptoms get worse.
HEMOTAG TABLET increases haemoglobin, where cyanocobalamin and folic acid are essential for the synthesis and repair of DNA and they act as cofactors in biological reactions, which are required to make fresh RBCs, prevent anaemia and for the regular working of the brain and nervous system. Sodium fedetate is an important component of haemoglobin and myoglobin (a pigment that stores oxygen in muscle).
