Ac.ascorbinicum MF should be given with care to patients with underlying renal failure due to the risk of formation of renal oxalate calculi. Tolerance may be induced in patients taking high doses.

Large doses of Ac.ascorbinicum MF have resulted in haemolysis in patients with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency.

Effects on ability to drive and use machines

The information provided in Effects on ability to drive and use machines of Ac.ascorbinicum MF is based on data of another medicine with exactly the same composition as the Ac.ascorbinicum MF of the medicine (Sodium Ascorbate).

Large doses may cause gastrointestinal disorders including diarrhoea. Large doses may also result in hyperoxaluria and renal oxalate calculi may form if the urine becomes acidic. Doses of 600mg or more daily have a diuretic action. Induced tolerance with prolonged use of large doses can result in symptoms of deficiency when intake is reduced to normal.

Overdose

The information provided in Overdose of Ac.ascorbinicum MF is based on data of another medicine with exactly the same composition as the Ac.ascorbinicum MF of the medicine (Sodium Ascorbate). Be careful and be sure to specify the information on the section Overdose in the instructions to the drug Ac.ascorbinicum MF directly from the package or from the pharmacist at the pharmacy.

Large doses may cause gastrointestinal disorders including diarrhoea. Large doses may also result in hyperoxaluria and renal oxalate calculi may form if urine is acidic. Doses of 600mg or more daily have a diuretic action. Stop treatment and treat symptomatically.

Pharmacodynamic properties

ATC Code: A11G A01

Ac.ascorbinicum MF, a water-soluble vitamin, is essential for formation of collagen and intercellular material, and therefore necessary for the development of cartilage, bone, teeth and for the healing of wounds. It is also essential for the conversion from folic acid to folinic acid, facilitates iron absorption from the gastro-intestinal tract and influences haemoglobin formation and erythrocyte maturation.

Pharmacokinetic properties

Be careful and be sure to specify the information on the section Pharmacokinetic properties in the instructions to the drug Ac.ascorbinicum MF directly from the package or from the pharmacist at the pharmacy.

Distribution - widely distributed in body tissues with about 25% bound to plasma proteins. Large amounts are present in leucocytes and platelets. Ac.ascorbinicum MF crosses the placenta.

Metabolism - readily oxidised to dehydroAc.ascorbinicum MF where some is metabolised to oxalic acid and the inactive ascorbate - 2 - sulphate. Metabolic turnover appears to be greater in females than males.

Excretion - large doses are rapidly excreted in the urine when in excess of the requirements of the body and after an intravenous dose, about 40% is excreted in 8 hours, which is increased to about 70% after tissue saturation. The amount of unchanged drug is dose dependent; in women the excretion of Ac.ascorbinicum MF appears to vary with the stage of the menstrual cycle and it is decreased when taking oral contraceptives.

Ac.ascorbinicum MF is excreted in breast milk.

Oxalic acid and ascorbate - 2 - sulphate are excreted in the urine.

Injections of Ac.ascorbinicum MF have been reported to be incompatible with aminophylline, bleomycin sulphate, erythromycin lactobionate, nafcillin sodium, nitrofurantoin sodium, conjugated oestrogens, sodium bicarbonate and sulphafurazole diethanolamine. Occasional incompatibility, depending on pH or concentration, has occurred with chloramphenicol sodium succinate.
