INTRODUCTION

RUBRO CAPSULE 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.

RUBRO CAPSULE is not recommended for use in patients with hemochromatosis, hemosiderosis or in patients receiving repeated blood transfusions or parenteral iron therapy. RUBRO CAPSULE should be given to children only after consulting your doctor about it. Before taking RUBRO CAPSULE, inform your doctor if you have hemolytic anaemia, iron-storage or iron-absorption diseases, gastrointestinal diseases or folate-dependent tumours.

RUBRO CAPSULE should only be used in pregnant or breastfeeding women if your doctor believes it is necessary. The most common side effects of taking RUBRO CAPSULE are hypersensitivity, mild diarrhoea, swollen stomach, gas, loss of appetite and nausea. Consult your doctor if any of your symptoms get worse.

HOW RUBRO CAPSULE WORKS

RUBRO CAPSULE 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).
