INTRODUCTION

LARINJECT 50MG contains Ferric carboxymaltose which belongs to the group of medicines called anti-anemic agents. It is an iron replacement medicine used in the treatment of iron deficiency anemia among adult patients who have intolerance or unsatisfactory response to oral iron or in adult patients who have non-dialysis dependent chronic kidney disease. Iron deficiency anemia is a condition in which the body lacks enough amount iron which is responsible for the formation of healthy red blood cells and oxygen transport in the body.

Ferric carboxymaltose contains iron (III) hydroxide complexed with a carbohydrate polymer called carboxymaltose, which is capable of releasing iron. The iron released from the complex helps in the synthesis of hemoglobin and red blood cells, leading to correction of iron-deficiency anemia. LARINJECT 50MG should be given only when your doctor decides that your body needs iron very quickly to build up your iron stores.

The most common side effects of this medicine are injection site irritation, headache, dizziness, high blood pressure and nausea. Before taking this medicine, inform your doctor if you have hypophosphatemia, infection, allergic reactions or liver disease. It is highly contraindicated in patients having an iron-independent anemia or iron overload disorders. It is not recommended for use in children aged under 14 years. It should be used with caution in pregnant or breastfeeding women. Contact your doctor before taking.

HOW LARINJECT 50MG WORKS

Iron is an important mineral ion responsible for the formation of new red blood cells and hemoglobin and transport of oxygen in the body. Lack of iron may lead to iron deficiency and impairment in the synthesis of red blood cells and hemoglobin and transport of oxygen in the body.

Systemic administration of ferric carboxymaltose effectively replenishes and restores iron in the body. It enhances the formation of hemoglobin and red blood cells and increases the supply of oxygen to the body, leading to correction of iron-deficiency anemia.
