For the treatment of anemia due to lack of iron and low folate as in menorrhagia, pregnancy, puberty, excessive blood loss, and advanced age. Also for treatment of conditions where iron and vitamin C deficiency occur together, along with a poor intake or increased need for B-complex vitamins in chronic and acute illness, as well as cases of metabolic stress, and in periods of extended recovery.

Centratex is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients. Iron compounds are contraindicated in patients with hemosiderosis, hemochromatosis, and hemolytic anemias. Folic acid may obscure signs and symptoms of pernicious anemia and is therefore a contraindication as well.

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. Iron is toxic and has been shown to cause severe reactions in children including death.

Folic acid alone is improper therapy in the treatment of pernicious anemia and other megaloblastic anemias where vitamin B-12 is deficient.

Folic acid in doses above 0.1 mg – 0.4 mg daily may obscure pernicious anemia, in that hematologic remission can occur while neurological manifestations remain progressive.

Safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients has not been established.

No clinical studies have been performed in patients over 65 to determine whether older persons respond differently from younger persons. Physicians should consider that elderly persons may have decreased hepatic, renal, or cardiac function.

Allergic sensitizations have been reported following both oral and parenteral administration of folic acid. Gastrointestinal disturbances (anorexia, nausea, diarrhea, constipation) occur occasionally, but are usually mild and subside with continuation of therapy and physician encouragement. Although the absorption of iron is best when taken between meals, occasional G.I. disturbances may be controlled by giving Centratex shortly after meals.

Adults only: 1 capsule daily between meals, orally. Not recommended in children.

Centratex is supplied as a natural gelatin capsule with tan speckled powder. Centratex is available in bottles of 100 (NDC 23359-100-10) and bottles of 30 (NDC 23359-100-30) Dispense in a tight, light resistant container as defined in the USP/NF with a child resistant closure. Store at room temperature between 15-30 degrees C (59-86 degrees F) Keep in a cool, dry place.
