Medical Description

Hemfer Xt tablet contains a combination of vitamin B9 (Folic acid) and iron, two crucial components the body requires for optimal health. This tablet can be taken during pregnancy and breastfeeding as it helps to prevent nutritional deficiency in these conditions. Folic acid in the tablet helps the body to produce and maintain new cells and is important for the formation of the genetic material. Iron on other hand is an important component for haemoglobin (Hb) formation, which in turn carries oxygen to the entire body. Some common side effects you may experience are nausea, vomiting, dark coloured stools and an upset stomach. Do not take this medicine in more than the recommended dosage as it may interfere with the absorption of zinc and vitamin B12.
