INDICATIONS: FusionTM is indicated for the treatment of iron deficiency anemia, which may occur due to an increased need for iron, a deficient intake of iron, or an excessive loss of iron. Also for treatment of condition in which iron deficiency and vitamin C deficiency occur together.
CONTRAINDICATIONS: FusionTM 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 hemolytic anemias.
Ferrous Fumarate and Polysaccharide Iron Complex: All FusionTM 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 (patented 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".
