Encicarb 50 MG/ML Description

Encicarb injection is used to treat iron-deficiency anaemia in adults - a condition in which your body has too little of the mineral iron required to make haemoglobin. Iron is needed to produce the r

ed blood cells that carry oxygen around your body. Encicarb injection contains ferric carboxymaltose as the active substance that restores iron storage in the body to make more red blood cells. The injectable or parenteral form is advised when you cannot tolerate or be successfully treated with iron supplements taken by mouth. Encicarb injection is given as an injection or infusion (saline drip) into a vein by your doctor or nurse. Do not self-inject this medicine. Encicarb injection is not recommended to be used in children.
