    INDICATIONS  : Fusion Plus TM is indicated for the treatment of Iron defficiency anemia and folate defficiency as in extended convalescence ,menorrhagia, pregnancy, puberty, excessive blood loss and advanced age.  Also for treatment of condition in which Iron defficiency and Vitamine C defficiency occur together along with a defficient intake or increased need for B-complex vitamins in chronic and acute illness as well as  cases of metabolic stress and convalescence 

    CONTRADICTIONS: Fusion Plus TM is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients; also, all iron compounds are contraindicated in patients with hemosiderosis, hemochromatosis, or haemolytic anemias. It is also contradicated in patients suffering from pernicious anemia as folic acid may obscure its signs and symptoms.

    Ferrous Fumarate and Polysaccharide Iron Complex (PIC): All Fusion Plus TM products include a unique patented source of iron, e.g. Ferrous Fumarate and Polysaccharide Iron Complex (U.S. Patent No. 11/243,043 Pending). “An increase in tolerability is observed with the (patended formulation) and is believed to occur as the result of distributing the total iron content in the composition among compounds that provide iron to the patient’s blood stream via two different mechanisms. The ferrous salts are readily absorbed in the upper gut, by direct dissolution and absorption of the ferrous iron by the bloodstream. However, the iron available from PIC is absorbed in the lower gut, via an active protein transport mechanism”.
    Clinical Studies: Picinni, L.-Ricciotti, M. 1982. Therapeutic effectiveness of an iron-polysaccharide complex in comparison with iron fumarate in the treatment of iron deficiency anemias: PANMINERVA MEDICA-EUROPA MEDICA, Vol. 24, No.3. pp.213-220 (July-September 1982).


    Folic Acid: Folic acid is one of the important hematopoietic agents necessary for proper regeneration of the blood-forming elements and their function. Additionally, folic acid increases jejuna glycolytic enzymes and is involved in the desaturation and hydroxylation of long-chain fatty acids in the brain. A deficiency in folic acid results in megaloblastic anemia.

  • WARNINGS

    WARNING: Accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under 6. Keep this product out of reach of children. In case of accidental overdose, call a doctor or poison control center immediately.

    WARNING: Folic acid alone is improper therapy in the treatment of pernicious anemia and other megaloblastic anemias where Vitamin B12 is deficient.

  • PRECAUTIONS

    PRECAUTIONS: Folic acid in doses above 0.1 mg – 0.4 mg daily may obscure  pernicious anemia, in that haematological remission can occur while neurological manifestations remain progressive. The use of this product by immunocompromised patients or treatment of any disorder must be medically supervised by a physician
