WHAT IS MALTOFER® MALTOFER is a medicine that is used in the treatment of iron deficiency in adolescents and adults where the use of ferrous iron supplements is not tolerated, or otherwise inappropriate.

It contains iron in the form of iron polymaltose, an iron carbohydrate compound.

Iron is an essential element required for the oxygen-carrying capacity of haemoglobin (the red pigment in red blood cells) and of myoglobin (the red pigment in muscle tissue). Moreover, iron plays an important role in many other vital processes in the human body.

How much to take Always take MALTOFER® exactly as your medical practitioner or pharmacist has told you. You should check with your medical practitioner or pharmacist if you are not sure.

MALTOFER® Tablets contain 100 mg iron and should not be divided to take lower doses than 100 mg iron. In cases where lower doses are required, MALTOFER® oral liquid forms (Syrup or Drops) should be used.
Treatment of iron deficiency in adults and adolescents (Children ≥ 12 years) where the use of ferrous iron supplements is not tolerated, or otherwise inappropriate, take 100 mg to 200 mg iron (1 to 2 tablets, 10 – 20 mL syrup, or 40-80 drops) daily preferably with food, or higher doses as directed by your medical practitioner.

Prevention of iron deficiency in adults and adolescents (Children ≥ 12 years) at high risk where the use of ferrous iron supplements is not tolerated, or otherwise inappropriate, take 100 mg iron (1 tablet, 10 mL syrup, or 40 drops) daily preferably with food, or higher doses as directed by your medical practitioner.

You should consult your medical practitioner regularly to monitor your iron status (e.g. serum ferritin levels) during therapy.
