R.B.TONE - Used for: Preventing or treating low levels of iron in the blood. It also may be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor.
R.B.TONE is an essential body mineral. It works by replacing iron in your body if your body does not produce enough on its own.
R.B.TONE is a type of iron. You normally get iron from the foods you eat. In your body, iron becomes a part of your hemoglobin (HEEM o glo bin) and myoglobin (MY o glo bin). Hemoglobin carries oxygen through your blood to tissues and organs. Myoglobin helps your muscle cells store oxygen.
R.B.TONE is used to treat iron deficiency anemia (a lack of red blood cells caused by having too little iron in the body).
R.B.TONE may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.
