Patienteninformation

Maltofer® Trinklösung in Monodosen

Vifor (International) AG

Was ist Maltofer Trinklösung und wann wird sie angewendet?

Maltofer Trinklösung ist ein Eisenpräparat, welches zur Behandlung des Eisenmangels ohne Anämie

(latenten Eisenmangels) und des Eisenmangels mit Anämie (manifesten Eisenmangels) angewendet

wird.

Eisen ist ein unentbehrlicher Baustein des roten Blutfarbstoffes, des roten Muskelfarbstoffes und der

eisenhaltigen Enzyme. Eisenmangel kann zu folgenden allgemeinen Beschwerden führen: vermehrte

Müdigkeit, verminderte geistige Leistungsfähigkeit, Reizbarkeit, Unruhe, Kopfschmerzen,

Appetitlosigkeit, Schwächung der Abwehrkräfte, auffallende Blässe, Mundwinkelrisse, trockene

Haut, brüchige Haare und Nägel.

Was sollte dazu beachtet werden?

Bevor Sie mit der Einnahme von Maltofer Trinklösung beginnen, sollte der Gehalt des Blutes an

Eisen und Blutfarbstoff (Hämoglobin) vom Arzt oder der Ärztin durch geeignete Untersuchungen

abgeklärt worden sein. Wenn die Symptome nicht durch Eisenmangel bedingt sind, ist Maltofer

Trinklösung nicht wirksam.

Ihr Arzt bzw. Ihre Ärztin möchte durch regelmässige Untersuchungen die Fortschritte Ihrer

Behandlung feststellen und vielleicht auch Blutuntersuchungen vornehmen. Das ist normal und sollte

Sie nicht weiter beunruhigen. Wenn sich Ihre Beschwerden innerhalb von 3 Wochen nicht bessern,

suchen Sie Ihren Arzt bzw. Ihre Ärztin auf.

Wann darf Maltofer Trinklösung nicht angewendet werden?

·Bei bekannter Überempfindlichkeit (Allergie) oder Unverträglichkeit gegenüber dem Wirkstoff

Eisen(III)-hydroxid Polymaltose Komplex oder einem der Hilfsstoffe (siehe «Was ist in Maltofer

Trinklösung enthalten?»)

·Bei Eisenüberschuss im Körper (z.B. bedingt durch selten vorkommende Eisenspeicherkrankheiten,

welche zu Eisenablagerungen in den Geweben führen)

·Bei sogenannten Eisenverwertungsstörungen (wenn die Blutarmut z.B. auf einer mangelhaften

Verwertung des Eisens beruht)

·Bei Blutarmut, die nicht auf einem Eisenmangel beruht (z.B. bedingt durch erhöhten

Hämoglobinabbau oder Mangel an Vitamin B12).

Wann ist bei der Einnahme von Maltofer Trinklösung Vorsicht geboten?

Informieren Sie vor der Einnahme von Maltofer Ihren Arzt oder Apotheker bzw. Ihre Ärztin oder

Apothekerin, wenn Sie eine Infektion oder einen Tumor haben.

Informieren Sie Ihren Arzt oder Apotheker bzw. Ihre Ärztin oder Apothekerin, wenn Sie kürzlich mit

injizierbaren Eisenpräparaten behandelt worden sind oder mit diesen behandelt werden könnten.

Solche Eisenpräparate sollten nicht gleichzeitig mit Maltofer angewendet werden.

Informieren Sie auch Ihren Arzt resp. Ihre Ärztin, wenn Sie Bluttransfusionen erhalten haben, denn

dann besteht ein Risiko von Eisenüberladung bei zusätzlicher Eisengabe.

Informieren Sie Ihren Arzt oder Apotheker bzw. Ihre Ärztin oder Apothekerin, wenn Sie:

·An anderen Krankheiten leiden

·Allergien haben

·Andere Arzneimittel (auch selbstgekaufte!) einnehmen oder äusserlich anwenden.

Darf Maltofer Trinklösung während einer Schwangerschaft oder in der Stillzeit eingenommen

werden?

Wenn Sie schwanger sind, es werden möchten oder stillen, dürfen Sie Maltofer nur nach

Rücksprache mit Ihrem Arzt bzw. Ihrer Ärztin einnehmen.

Wie verwenden Sie Maltofer Trinklösung?

Maltofer Trinklösung soll während oder direkt nach dem Essen eingenommen werden. Maltofer

Trinklösung ist für Kinder unter 12 Jahren nicht geeignet.

Jugendliche (ab 12 Jahren), Erwachsene:

Bei Eisenmangel mit Anämie: 1 Monodose 1-3 mal täglich während 3-5 Monaten bis die

Bluttestwerte wieder normal sind. Die Tagesdosis kann auch auf einmal eingenommen werden.

Anschliessend wird die Behandlung mit 1 Monodose täglich für mehrere Wochen fortgesetzt, um die

Eisenspeicher aufzufüllen.

Bei Eisenmangel ohne Anämie: 1 Monodose täglich während 1-2 Monaten.

Die Dosierung und die Behandlungsdauer ist abhängig vom Ausmass des Eisenmangels. Über die

genaue Behandlungsdauer entscheidet in jedem einzelnen Fall der Arzt bzw. die Ärztin.

Wenn Sie mehr Maltofer eingenommen haben als Sie sollten, so sprechen Sie mit Ihrem Arzt oder

Apotheker bzw. mit Ihrer Ärztin oder Apothekerin. Wenn Sie vergessen haben Maltofer

einzunehmen, nehmen Sie einfach die nächste Dosis zur gewohnten Zeit. Nehmen Sie keine doppelte

Dosis, um die vergessene Dosis zu kompensieren

Halten Sie sich an die in dieser Packungsbeilage angegebene oder vom Arzt oder der Ärztin

verschriebene Dosierung. Wenn Sie glauben, das Arzneimittel wirke zu schwach oder zu stark, so

sprechen Sie mit Ihrem Arzt oder Apotheker bzw. mit Ihrer Ärztin oder Apothekerin.

Welche Nebenwirkungen kann Maltofer Trinklösung haben?

Folgende Nebenwirkungen können bei der Einnahme von Maltofer Trinklösung auftreten:

Eine sehr häufige Nebenwirkung ist eine Stuhlverfärbung bedingt durch die Eisenausscheidung,

diese ist aber harmlos.

Andere häufige Nebenwirkungen sind Durchfall, Übelkeit und Magen-Darm-Beschwerden.

Gelegentlich kommt es zu Erbrechen, Verstopfung, Bauchschmerzen, Zahnverfärbung oder

Kopfschmerzen sowie zu lokalen Hautreaktionen (Juckreiz, Ausschlag).

Diese Nebenwirkungen sind meist harmlos und vorübergehend.

Sehr selten kann es zu allergischen Reaktionen kommen. Es kann sich z.B. um Hautreaktionen,

Schwellungen (Ödeme) oder Atemnot handeln. In solchen Fällen sollen Sie das Arzneimittel nicht

mehr einnehmen und den Arzt aufsuchen.

Wenn Sie Nebenwirkungen bemerken, die hier nicht beschrieben sind, sollten Sie Ihren Arzt oder

Apotheker bzw. Ihre Ärztin oder Apothekerin informieren.

Was ist ferner zu beachten?

Arzneimittel nicht in Reichweite von Kindern aufbewahren.

Das Arzneimittel darf nur bis zu dem auf der Packung mit «EXP» bezeichneten Datum verwendet

werden.

Bei Raumtemperatur (15-25°C) lagern.

Weitere Auskünfte erteilt Ihnen Ihr Arzt oder Apotheker bzw. Ihre Ärztin oder Apothekerin. Diese

Personen verfügen über die ausführliche Fachinformation.

Sargassum seaweed: limit the exposure of residents and workers to hydrogen sulphide

Since August 2014, the French Caribbean and French Guiana have been experiencing successive waves of Sargassum seaweed washing up on their coastlines. Despite the efforts made to clean it up, the seaweed decomposes in situ. This leads to the production of hydrogen sulphide (H2S), which can sometimes be detected at high concentrations. Doctors' reports concerning the health effects suffered by people exposed to H2S, and complaints from the general public relating to the problem of odours, have increased s...

Climate change and health

Climate change and health

Climate change is a reality on which there is broad consensus in the scientific community. Because of the inertia of the climate system, changes to the climate related to human activities will continue for many years, regardless of any measures taken today. Combating climate change, which is part of a more global environmental change, is therefore essential to limit its magnitude.

Scientific guideline: ICH M9 on biopharmaceutics classification system based biowaivers - Step 2b - First version, draft: consultation open

This new multidisciplinary guideline is proposed to address biopharmaceutics classification system (BCS)-based biowaivers. BCS-based biowaivers may be applicable to BCS Class I and III drugs, however BCS-based biowaivers for these two classes are not recognized worldwide. This means that pharmaceutical companies have to follow different approaches in the different regions. This guideline will provide recommendations to support the biopharmaceutics classification of medicinal products and will provide rec...

Scientific guideline: Reflection paper on dose optimisation of established veterinary antibiotics in the context of summary of product characteristics (SPC) harmonisation, draft: consultation open

Established veterinary antibiotics are not always used at the authorised dose, and the dose may need to be reviewed in order to maintain their effectiveness whilst limiting the risks of antimicrobial resistance. Before a new dose is introduced, the company would typically have to conduct new studies to ensure it does not negatively affect the safety of the target animal, the consumer of animal produce, or the environment. This may reduce product availability, which could have a negative impact on antimic...
