Important Risk Information
- INFUVITE Adult and Pediatric Multiple Vitamins for Injection is contraindicated in patients who have an existing hypervitaminosis, or a history of hypersensitivity due to any vitamins or excipients contained in this formulation.
- Allergic reactions have been known to occur following intravenous administration of thiamine and vitamin K. The formulation is contraindicated prior to blood sampling for detection of megaloblastic anemia, as the folic acid and the cyanocobalamin in the vitamin solution can mask serum deficits.
- Caution should be exercised when administering INFUVITE Multiple Vitamins for Injection to patients on warfarin sodium-type anticoagulation therapy. Periodic monitoring of prothrombin time/INR response is essential in determining the appropriate dosage of anticoagulant therapy.
- If this formulation is the only source of vitamins for a long period of time, blood concentrations of each of the vitamins should be monitored, particularly vitamins A, C, D, and folic acid, to determine if deficiencies are occurring. There have been rare reports of anaphylactoid reactions following intravenous doses of thiamine.
- Aluminum may reach toxic levels with prolonged parenteral administration if kidney function is impaired. Premature neonates are particularly at risk because their kidneys are immature, and they require large amounts of calcium and phosphate solutions, which contain aluminum
