INTRODUCTION

XOOM TABLET is a combination of Ferrous ascorbate, Folic acid and Zinc sulphate 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.

XOOM TABLET is not recommended for use in patients with untreated cobalamin deficiency, Addisonian pernicious anaemia or malignant disease (except megaloblastic anaemia). Before taking XOOM TABLET, inform your doctor if you have hemochromatosis, hemoglobinopathies, any gastrointestinal diseases or anaemias other than those due to iron deficiency or if you are receiving repeated blood transfusions.

XOOM TABLET is safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding, but consult your doctor before taking it. The most common side effects of taking XOOM TABLET are digestive tract problems like abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhoea, constipation, black stools, indigestion, etc. Consult your doctor if any of your symptoms get worse.

HOW XOOM TABLET WORKS

XOOM TABLET treats anaemia where ferrous ascorbate acts as an iron supplement to prevent iron deficiency anaemia, folic acid helps the body make healthy new cells, especially in pregnant women and zinc sulphate stimulates the activity of many enzymes in the body, supports a healthy immune system to make DNA and plays an important role in proper body development during childhood, adolescence and pregnancy.

HOW TO MANAGE SIDE EFFECTS

Stomach pain:

Try to rest and relax. Eat and drink slowly or try to eat smaller meals more frequently. Keep a heating pad on your stomach. If your stomach still aches, contact your doctor.

Vomiting:

Get adequate rest. Drink lots of fluids, especially water. Have small sips if you feel sick. Eat when you feel like eating; you don't have to eat or avoid any specific foods. Do not take any medicine for vomiting without your doctor's consultation. If vomiting does not get better, contact your doctor.

Diarrhea:

Drink lots of fluids, like water or fruit juice, to keep yourself hydrated. Check with your doctor before taking any medicine for diarrhoea. If the diarrhoea does not get better, contact your doctor.

Constipation:

Eat plenty of fibre-rich foods, like fresh fruits and vegetables and cereals and drink plenty of water. Exercise more regularly. If you still feel constipated, contact your doctor.

Indigestion:

Raise your head and shoulders while sleeping—this can prevent stomach acid from coming up. Do not eat for 3 to 4 hours before going to bed and avoid tea, coffee, cola and alcohol. If your indigestion does not improve, contact your doctor.
