Pharmacology

Vitamin B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B6 (pyridoxine), B12 (cyanocobalamin) are water soluble vitamins which have a major role in maintaining the vital functions of the body.

Vitamin B. is an essential nutrient; body uses it to process carbohydrates, fat, and proteins. Riboflavin also plays an important role in certain metabolic reactions. Vitamin Bs, principally in the form of the coenzyme pyridoxal 5'-phosphate, is involved in a wide range of biochemical reactions, including the metabolism of amino acids and glycogen, the synthesis of nucleic acids. hemoploblin, synthesis of neurotransmitters-serotonin, dopamine, GABA etc.

Vitamin Bs maintains nerve cells and aids in the production of DMA and RNA and is also a necessary nutrient required for formation of RBDs.
Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin necessary for maintaining poor vision, proper immune system function, growth, bone formation, reproduction, and wound healing.

Vitamin D3 (ehotecalciferol) helps the body to maintain the levels of calcium and phosphorus and is therefore essential for building and maintaining healthy bones.
Selenium is potent antioxidant and an integral part of the body's natural antioxidant glutatlione peroxidase system. It is an effective detoxifier of heavy metals, its antioxidant properties protect against environmental and chemical sensitivities, and its immune functions enhance the body's antibacterial and antiviral defenses.

Magnesium is an essential mineral involved in various metabolic reactions. It is necessary for major biological process, including the production of cellular energy and the synthesis of nucleic acids and proteins. If is also important for the electrical stability of cells and maintenance of membrane integrity.

Potassium is an essential macromineral with a wide range of biochemical and physiological roles. It is important in the transmission of nerve impulses, the contraction of cardiac, skeletal and smooth muscle, the production of energy, the synthesis of nucleic acids, the maintenance at intracellular tonicity and the maintenance of normal Mood pressure, muscle contraction, nerve conduction and the regulation of vascular tone, among other things.

Phosphorous contributes to energy production by participating in the breakdown of carbohydrates, protein, and fats, it is needed for the growth, maintenance, and repair of all tissues and cells, and for the production of DNA and RNA. Phosphorus is also needed to balance and metabolize other vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin D, calcium, iodine, magnesium, and zinc.

Indications

SOLOTONE is indicated for the prevention of vitamin deficiency. It is also indicated to replenish vitamins post infection, post antibiotic therapy. Sometimes it is indicated for use in growing children as a nutritional supplement.

Contra-indications

Known hypersensitivity to any of the vitamins in this product or a pre-existing hypervitaminosis. This formulation is contraindicated prior to Mood sampling for detection of megaloblastic anemia, as the cyanocobalamin can mask serum deficits.

Magnesium and potassium supplements should not be used in people with kidney disease or severe heart disease except under physician supervision.

Precautions/Warnings

Pregnant women should not take vitamin A supplements. Use of vitamin B3 in diabetic patients may affect blood glucose levels. It also affects the actions of anticorwulsant medications, so epileptics should take it only under skilled supervision.

Phosphate in larger doses can lead to diarrhea and calcification (hardening) of organs and soft tissue, and can interfere with the body's ability to use iron, calcium, magnesium, and zinc, Calcium and phosphorus consumption should be balanced.

Interactions

Thiamine, riboflavin and pyridoxine, have been reported to decrease the antibiotic activity at erythromycin, kanamycin, streptomycin, doxycycline, and lincomycin. Bleomycin is inactivated in vitro by riboflavin.

Vitamin B1 either alone or in combination with other B vitamins should be taken at different times from tetracycline because it interferes with its absorption and effectiveness.

Vitamin A can interact with antacids, anticoagulants, alcohol etc.

Vitamin D, supplements should be used cautiously with estrogen, calcium channel blockers, antacids etc., due to interaction with these drugs.

Selenium may reduce toxic side effects associated with cisplatin and doxorubicin, two forms of chemotherapy used to treat cancer.

Pyridoxine may decrease the efficacy of levodopa by increasing its metabolism,

Adverse Effects

Dosage & Administration

One tablet per day or as directed by the physician.

OVERDOSE

Some people who take high doses of vitamin B over a long period of time may experience symptoms such as tingling, numbness, or weakness in the extremities due to nerve damage. But studies indicate that doses smaller than 500 mcg per day appear to be safe.

High doses of selenium (>1,000 mcg a day) overtime may produce fatigue, arthritis, hair or fingernail loss, garlicky breath or body odor, gastrointestinal disorders, or Irritability.

Toxic levels can result from the abuse of magnesium-containing laxatives. The early signs of toxicity are nausea, vomiting and flushing. Even small doses of magnesium can cause diarrhea in some people.

Vitamin A in doses of 25,000-50,000 IU daily for several months can be toxic for people with liver problems, for those taking certain drugs, or for heavy drinkers

Storage/Handling Recommendations

Store in a cool, dry place. Protect from light Keep all medicines away from reach of children.
