Indications and Usage for Infuvite Pediatric
Infuvite Pediatric is a combination of vitamins indicated for the prevention of vitamin deficiency in pediatric patients up to 11 years of age receiving parenteral nutrition.
The physician should not await the development of clinical signs of vitamin deficiency before initiating vitamin therapy.
Warnings and Precautions
Infuvite Pediatric contains aluminum that may be toxic. Aluminum may reach toxic levels with prolonged parenteral administration in pediatric patients with renal impairment. Premature neonates are particularly at risk because their kidneys are immature, and they require large amounts of calcium and phosphate solution, which contain aluminum.
Research indicates that patients with impaired kidney function, including premature neonates who receive parenteral levels of aluminum at greater than 4 to 5 mcg/kg/day accumulate aluminum at levels associated with central nervous system and bone toxicity. Tissue loading may occur at even lower rates of administration. To prevent aluminum toxicity periodically monitor aluminum levels with prolonged parenteral administration of Infuvite Pediatric.
Allergic Reactions to Thiamine
Allergic reactions such as urticaria, shortness of breath, wheezing and angioedema have been reported following intravenous administration of thiamine, which is found in Infuvite Pediatric. There have been rare reports of anaphylaxis following intravenous doses of thiamine. No fatal anaphylaxis associated with Infuvite Pediatric has been reported.
. Hypervitaminosis A
Hypervitaminosis A, manifested by nausea, vomiting, headache, dizziness, blurred vision has been reported in patients with renal failure receiving 1.5 mg/day retinol and in patients with liver disease. Therefore, supplementation of renal failure patients and patients with liver disease with vitamin A, an ingredient found in Infuvite Pediatric, should be undertaken with caution [see Use in Specific Populations (8.6, 8.7)]. Blood levels of Vitamin A should be monitored periodically.
Decreased Anticoagulant Effect of Warfarin
Infuvite Pediatric contains Vitamin K which may decrease the anticoagulant action of warfarin. In patients who are on warfarin anticoagulant therapy receiving Infuvite Pediatric monitor blood levels of prothrombin/INR to determine if dose of warfarin needs to be adjusted.
Interference with Diagnosis of Megaloblastic Anemia
Infuvite Pediatric contains folic acid and cyanocobalamin which can mask serum deficiencies of folic acid and cyanocobalamin in patients with megaloblastic anemia. Avoid the use of Infuvite PediatricS in patients with suspected or diagnosed megaloblastic anemia prior to blood sampling for the detection of the folic acid and cyanocobalamin deficiencies.
Potential to Develop Vitamin Deficiencies or Excesses
In patients receiving parenteral multivitamins such as with Infuvite Pediatric, blood vitamin concentrations should be periodically monitored to determine if vitamin deficiencies or excesses are developing. Infuvite Pediatric may not correct long-standing specific vitamin deficiencies. The administration of additional doses of specific vitamins may be required [see Dosage and Administration (2.2)].
Interference with Urine Glucose Testing
Infuvite Pediatric contains vitamin C which is also known as ascorbic acid. Ascorbic acid in the urine may cause false negative urine glucose results.
Vitamin E Overdose in Infants Receiving Additional Vitamin E
Additional vitamin E supplementations of patients receiving Infuvite Pediatric may result in elevated blood concentrations of vitamin E and potential vitamin E toxicity in infants. Avoid additional oral or parental doses of vitamin E in infants. Daily dose of Infuvite Pediatric contains adequate concentrations of vitamin E required to achieve normal blood levels of vitamin E.
Risk of Low Vitamin A Levels
Lower vitamin A concentrations may occur after administration of Infuvite Pediatric due to the adherence of Vitamin A to plastic. Monitor blood vitamin A concentrations periodically. Additional administration of therapeutic doses of vitamin A may be required, especially in low-birth weight infants.
Risk of E-Ferol Syndrome in Low-Birth Weight Infants
E-Ferol syndrome manifested by thrombocytopenia, renal dysfunction, hepatomegaly, cholestasis, ascites, hypotension and metabolic acidosis has been reported in low-birth weight infants following administration of polysorbates which are found in Infuvite Pediatric. No E-Ferol syndrome associated with Infuvite Pediatric has been reported.
The following adverse reactions are discussed in greater detail in other sections of the labeling.• Allergic reactions to thiamine [see Warnings and Precautions (5.2)]. • Hypervitaminosis A [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3)]
The following adverse reactions have been identified during postapproval use of Infuvite Pediatric. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure.Dermatologic: rash, erythema, pruritis CNS: headache, dizziness, agitation, anxiety Ophthalmic: diplopia
