Actions: Vitamins are essential for the maintenance of normal metabolic functions. The water-soluble vitamins of the B complex group play a part in the metabolism of carbohydrates, alcohol and branched chain amino acids: a vital role in cellular oxidation and in the synthesis of DNA and the fatty acids in myelin. Ascorbic acid is necessary for collagen formation, tissue repair in the body and may be involved in some oxidation-reduction reactions. It is also involved in the utilization of carbohydrates, synthesis of lipids and proteins and the preservation of blood vessel integrity. Folic acid is necessary for normal erythropoiesis and nucleoprotein synthesis. COQ10 act as an antioxidant.
Indications: Becosules is indicated for supportive nutritional supplementation in conditions in which the B-complex vitamin, vitamin C and COQ10 are required. Vitamin deficiencies may be associated with restricted diets, improper food intake, decreased absorption and prolonged stress, infections or chronic fevers, following burns and trauma. Vitamin supplementations may be necessary for those on unusual diets, on reducing diets with drastically reduced food selection and also for those with diabetes mellitus, hepatobiliary tract disease, those recovering from surgery and in convalescence. COQ 10 supplementation may be necessary for those who are on statins.
Adverse Effects: Water soluble vitamins seldom cause toxicity in persons with normal renal function.
Contraindication: Becosules is contraindicated in patients who are hypersensitive to any of the constituents.
Precautions: No adverse effects have been documented in pregnant and nursing mothers with the intake of the recommended daily requirements. However, studies have not been made on humans and animals.
Drug Interactions: Pyridoxine may interact with levodopa in an antagonistic manner, but such antagonism does not occur if a carbidopa/levodopa combination is given.
