Vitamin B6 - Pyridoxine is vitamin B6. Vitamins are naturally occurring substances necessary for many processes in the body. Pyridoxine is important in the breakdown of protein, fats, and carbohydrates from foods into products needed by the body.

Pyridoxine is used to treat or prevent Extralac (Vitamin B6) deficiency. It is also used to treat a certain type of anemia (lack of red blood cells). Pyridoxine injection is used to treat some types of seizure in babies.

Pyridoxine taken by mouth (oral) is available without a prescription. Injectable pyridoxine must be given by a healthcare professional.

Extralac (Vitamin B6) (pyridoxine) is a water-soluble vitamin used in the prophylaxis and treatment of Extralac (Vitamin B6) deficiency and peripheral neuropathy in those receiving isoniazid (isonicotinic acid hydrazide, INH). Extralac (Vitamin B6) has been found to lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure in a small group of subjects with essential hypertension. Hypertension is another risk factor for atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease. Another study showed pyridoxine hydrochloride to inhibit ADP- or epinephrine-induced platelet aggregation and to lower total cholesterol levels and increase HDL-cholesterol levels, again in a small group of subjects. Vitamin B6, in the form of pyridoxal 5'-phosphate, was found to protect vascular endothelial cells in culture from injury by activated platelets. Endothelial injury and dysfunction are critical initiating events in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Human studies have demonstrated that Extralac (Vitamin B6) deficiency affects cellular and humoral responses of the immune system. Extralac (Vitamin B6) deficiency results in altered lymphocyte differentiation and maturation, reduced delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) responses, impaired antibody production, decreased lymphocyte proliferation and decreased interleukin (IL)-2 production, among other immunologic activities.

Indication: For the treatment of Extralac (Vitamin B6) deficiency and for the prophylaxis of isoniazid-induced peripheral neuropathy.

Pernicious anaemia, peripheral neuritis especially diabetic and alcoholic polyneuritis, trigeminal neuritis, vomiting of pregnancy, vitamin B complex deficiency, anorexia, agranulocytosis, radiation sickness, coeliac and idiopathic, steatorrhoea which are usually accompanied by malabsorption of vitamin B 12 and during administration of broad-spectrum antibiotics.

Vitamin B12 - Cyanocobalamin is a man-made form of vitamin B12. Extralac (Vitamin B12) is important for growth, cell reproduction, blood formation, and protein and tissue synthesis.

Cyanocobalamin is used to treat Extralac (Vitamin B12) deficiency in people with pernicious anemia and other conditions.

Cyanocobalamin may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.

Extralac (Vitamin B12) refers to a group of water-soluble vitamins. It has high biological activity. This medication is necessary for normal hematopoiesis (promotes maturation of erythrocytes). Involved in the processes of transmethylation, hydrogen transport, synthesis of methionine, nucleic acids, choline, creatine. Contributes to the accumulation in erythrocytes of compounds containing sulfhydryl groups. Has a beneficial effect on liver function and the nervous system. Activates the coagulation of blood in high doses causes an increase in the activity of thromboplastin and prothrombin.

Cyanocobolamin or Vitamin B12 activates metabolism of the lipids, carbohydrates and proteins, participate in the biosynthesis of the labile methyl groups, choline, methionine, creatinine, nucleic acid. Vitamin B12 contributes to accumulation of certain compounds with sulfhydryl groups in red blood cells. Being growth factor Cyanocobolamin stimulates the functional condition of the bone marrow improving normoblastic erythropoiesis.

Cyanocobolamin also normalizes functions of the liver and CNS, activates blood coagulation, increases the activity of prothrombin.

Indications:

  • Anemia due to Vitamin B12(Cyanocobalamin) deficiency(pernicious anaemia)
  • Alimentary anemia, hemorrhagic anemia, Addison-Biermer anemia, iron deficiency anemia associated with deficiency of vitamin B12

    Vitamin B3 - Indications: hypercholesterolaemia

    Chilblains; hyperlipidaemias; peripheral vascular disorders; venous ulcers

    Folic Acid - Pharmacology: Required for nucleoprotein synthesis and maintenance of normal erythropoiesis; precursor of tetrahydrofolic acid, which is necessary for transformylation reactions in the biosynthesis of purines and thymidylates of nucleic acids.

    Indication: Megaloblastic anemia caused by Extralac (Folic Acid) deficiency, as may be seen in tropical or nontropical sprue, and in anemias of nutritional origin, pregnancy, infancy, or childhood.

    Used for: Treating certain types of anemia. It may also be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor.
