Medical Description

Encicarb 500mg Vial Of 10ml Injection contains ferric carboxymaltose. It is used to treat iron deficiency anaemia (a condition in which your body has too little of the mineral iron, required to make haemoglobin) in adults. Iron is needed to produce the red blood cells that carry oxygen around your body. The injectable or parenteral form is advised when you could not tolerate or be successfully treated with iron supplements taken by mouth. It works by restoring iron storage in the body to make more red blood cells. It is given as an injection or infusion (saline drip) into a vein by your doctor or nurse. It may cause a temporary increase in blood pressure accompanied by facial redness, dizziness, and nausea and may disappear within 30 minutes. If you experience any adverse effect inform your doctor immediately.
