Description of the medicine: Ferkoven (Fercovenum)

VERKOVEN (Fercovenum).

An iron preparation for intravenous administration. Contains iron sugar, cobalt gluconate and carbohydrate solution. The iron content in 1 ml is about 0.02 g, cobalt - 0.00009 g.

Transparent reddish-brown liquid, sweetish taste; pH 11, 0 - 12, 0.

Used in the treatment of hypochromic anemia of various etiologies, especially with poor tolerance and insufficient absorption of iron preparations, taken orally, as well as in cases where it is necessary to quickly eliminate iron deficiency in the body. The presence of cobalt in the preparation enhances erythropoiesis (see Coamide).

It is injected into a vein once a day daily for 10 to 15 days: the first 2 injections - 2 ml, then - 5 ml. Enter slowly (within 8 - 10 minutes). The solution should not get under the skin.

Iron deficiency in the body and the amount of drug per course of treatment can be calculated by the formula: iron deficiency in milligrams is: [patient weight (kg) x 2, 5] x {16, 5 - [1, 3 x hemoglobin in the patient’s blood (g / 100 ml)]}.

In addition to the quantities obtained in the calculation, the drug should not be administered.
