Description

Indications
• In the wasting syndrome in chronic renal failure
• Uremia
• Impaired metabolic functions of the kidney
• To maintain levels when the dietary intake of vitamins is inadequate or excretion and loss are excessive
Side Effects
When taken as directed, multivitamins are not expected to cause serious side effects. Less serious side effects may include:
• upset stomach
• headache; or
• unusual or unpleasant taste in your mouth
Precautions
Folic acid may mask the symptoms of pernicious anemia in that hematological remission may occur while neurological manifestations remain progressive.
Dosage and Administration
Dosage prescribed is one tablet daily or as directed by a physician. If on dialysis, take after treatment. Use this medication as directed on the label, or as your doctor has prescribed. Do not use the medication in larger amounts or for longer than recommended.
Never take more than the recommended dose of a multivitamin. Avoid taking more than one multivitamin product at the same time unless your doctor tells you to. Taking similar vitamin products together can result in a vitamin overdose or serious side effects.
Avoid the regular use of salt substitutes in your diet if your multivitamin contains potassium. If you are on a low-salt diet, ask your doctor before taking a vitamin or mineral supplement.
Do not take this medication with milk, other dairy products, calcium supplements, or antacids that contain calcium. Calcium may make it harder for your body to absorb certain ingredients of the multivitamin. It is important to take multivitamins regularly to get the most benefit.

Overdose symptoms may include stomach pain, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, loss of appetite, hair loss, peeling skin, tingly feeling in or around your mouth, changes in menstrual periods, weight loss, severe headache, muscle or joint pain, severe back pain, blood in your urine, pale skin, and easy bruising or bleeding.
