Pharmacological action


Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics


The antianemic drug containing iron in the form of bivalent salt, applied to treatment of iron deficiency states. Iron is a part of hemoglobin, a myoglobin and enzymes, plays a large role in tissue respiration. The part of the arrived iron is spent for synthesis in an organism of ferriferous connections, and other — is deposited in a liver and a spleen. The need for it makes 3 mg/days. Drug fills the existing shortage of iron and stimulates hemoglobin synthesis. Effects of its action at anemias are noted in 10 days, but reserves of iron are recovered in 3 months of regular reception.


It is soaked up in a small intestine, generally a duodenum. Extent of absorption depends on deficit of iron – the it is higher, the absorption is better. At essential deficit absorption of 10-30% (at normal content no more than 15%). In process of normalization of its level, in a gastrointestinal tract the amount of assimilable iron decreases. Also absorption depends on the valency of iron and acidity of a gastric juice. The drugs Fe2 + are easily soaked up in a small intestine. It joins in composition of hemoglobin in marrow.

Indications to use

All dosage forms of drug are applied to treatment:

  • posthemorrhagic anemia (operations, childbirth, profuse bleedings);

  • at premature newborns;
  • at adults (donorship, vegetarianism).


  • hypersensitivity;
  • hemosiderosis, hemochromatosis;
  • aplastic and hemolitic anemias;
  • disturbance of digestion of iron;
  • gastrointestinal tract dysfunctions which interfere with iron absorption.

With care drug is appointed at a peptic ulcer, ulcer colitis and enteritis.

About Haemoferum

Ferrous sulfate is "the gold standard" of peroral iron preparations. It has high absorbability which is much higher, than Fumarat or the Gluconate have gland. According to patients very much had to accept this drug – most often it is pregnant women and women who suffer from an iron deficiency anemia. As a rule, treatment was begun with drugs for intake, and in rare instances (bad portability, absorption disturbance, a state after a resection of a small intestine) were appointed intramusculary.

Adults accepted drug in a dragee or drops, and to children it was appointed only in the form of drops. At treatment at all children in 6 — 10 weeks hemoglobin level was normalized. At anemia of easy degree treatment duration Haemoferum made 6 weeks, moderately severe – 8 weeks, and at heavy anemia of 10 weeks. Preventive reception in a half dose for 1-1,5 months was recommended to all. All noticed efficiency of treatment in 7–10 days: weakness, fatigue, perspiration, dizziness disappeared.

By-effects forced many patients to refuse administration of drug. At its use there is an irritation mucous a stomach (there is a dissolution) and a duodenum where there is an absorption. At many nausea, stomach aches, frustration of a chair were noted.

To minimize by-effects from a gastrointestinal tract, it is better to begin treatment with 1/4 for a necessary dose and gradually within 7 days to bring to a full dose. Reduces a drug irritant action on a gastrointestinal tract its reception after food.
