PHAREX B Complex


Available in:  box of 20s, 100s, and 500s
Pharex B Complex is composed of three essential B Vitamins namely, Thiamine (Vitamin B1), Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6) and Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12). Pharex B complex is essential in the repair of damaged nerves. It helps maintain healthy nerve cells that results in the relief of common nerve problem symptoms such as “pangangalay” and “pamamanhid” along with restoring normal nerves and muscle functions.

Indications

  • Treatment of peripheral neuropathies (peripheral nerve diseases) manifesting with symptoms of numbness or “pamamanhid”, muscle weakness or “pangangalay” and pain due to complications of diabetes, intake of too much alcohol, exposure to toxins or drugs and entrapped nerves caused by trauma or nerve compression.
  • Treatment of painful manifestations of nerve inflammation and neuropathy of rheumatic and traumatic origin and degenerative conditions of the spine.
  • Treatment of neuropathies caused by various genetic and metabolic disorders, autoimmune diseases, kidney or liver diseases, bacterial and viral infections, malignancy and thyroid disorders.
  • Prevention and treatment of Vitamin B deficiencies.
  • As a dietary supplement for individuals with deficient intake, increased requirements and increased expenditure of B complex vitamins such as malnourished patients, very young and elderly patients, pregnant and lactating, and patients with debilitating co-morbid medical conditions.

Dosage and Administration

1 to 2 tablets daily, or as prescribed by physician.

Precautions

Cyanocobalamin or hydroxocobalamin should, if possible not be given to patients with suspected vitamin B12 deficiency without first confirming the diagnosis. Regular monitoring of the blood is advisable. Use of doses greater than 10 micrograms daily may produce a hematological response in patients with folate deficiency; indiscriminate use may mask vitamin B12 deficiency.

Adverse Reactions

Adverse effects seldom occur following administration of thiamine, but hypersensitivity reactions have occurred, mainly after parenteral administration. These reactions have ranged in severity from very mild to very rarely, fatal anaphylactic shock. Long term administration of large doses of pyridoxine is associated with the development of severe peripheral neuropathies, the dose at which these occur is controversial. Allergic hypersensitivity reactions have occurrred rarely following the parenteral administration of the vitamin B12 compounds cyanocobalamin & hydroxocobalamin. Arrythmias secondary to hypokalemia have occurred at the beginning of parenteral treatment with hydroxocobalamin.
