Ascorbic Acid (as-KORE-bik AS-id), Fluoride, Iron (EYE-urn), Vitamin A (VYE-ta-min A), Vitamin D (VYE-ta-min D)
Supplies your child's body with vitamins and iron when your child is not getting enough vitamins and iron from the daily diet. Fluoride helps in reducing the number of cavities in the teeth. It is also used to make up for the low level of fluoride in children that do not have enough level of fluoride in the water that they drink.
Your child's doctor will tell you how much of this medicine to use and how often. Do not give more medicine or give it more often than your child's doctor tells you to.
This medicine may be dropped directly into the mouth using the specially marked dropper, or mixed with cereal, fruit juice, or other food.
If a dose is missed:
If your child misses a dose or if you forget to give your child this medicine, give it as soon as you can. If it is almost time for your child's next dose, wait until then to give the medicine and skip the missed dose. Do not give extra medicine to make up for a missed dose.
Do not give more of this medicine to your child than what your child's doctor has ordered or what the label on the bottle recommends. Iron can build up in the body and may cause harm.
The level of fluoride present in drinking water may differ from one place to another. Before giving this medicine to your child, check with your child's doctor or dentist first if this medicine is really needed. Also check with your child's doctor or dentist if you change infant feeding habits (e.g., breast-feeding to infant formula), drinking water (e.g., city water to nonfluoridated bottled water), or filtering systems (e.g., tap water to filtered tap water).
Too much fluoride can cause white patches or yellow or brown spots on the teeth. If this happens, stop giving this medicine to your child and call your doctor.
Your child's doctor or dentist will need to check your child's progress at regular visits. Be sure to keep all appointments.
Some vitamin and mineral supplements can sometimes make the stool darker and the urine dark yellow. This is normal.
