Is EBMfer liquid covered by my insurance plan?

Oral iron supplements are non- prescription products and very few insurance plans would pay for them. Call your insurance plan provider and ask about EBMfer liquid if they would pay for it. Other option is to buy EBMfer liquid from your pharmacy and then send-in the receipt to your insurance company to see if they would pay for it. 

 

Why the name EBMfer liquid?

EBM stands for Evidence Based Medicine and fer means iron. So, EBMfer stands for Evidence Based Iron Therapy.

 

After taking EBMfer liquid my stool gets black/ dark. Is there any issue with that?

No, it’s quite common after taking oral iron supplements.

 

Why is EBMfer liquid a Natural Health Product?

As per Health Canada regulations, all oral iron supplements are now registered as Natural Heath Products and are no more assigned Drug Identification Number (DIN). Hence, like other oral iron supplements, EBMfer liquid is considered a Natural Health Product and has been assigned Natural Product Number (NPN) 80074029

 

I find change in the colour of EBMfer liquid- it is darker now as compared to when I first opened the bottle. Is there any issue with that?

No. EBMfer liquid contains iron that changes colour (gets darker) when comes in contact with air and when kept over a period of time.

 

How can we avoid staining of the teeth with iron supplements?

The staining of the teeth from iron supplements may be avoided or minimized:

  • Use a dropper and place the dose well back on the tongue and then rinse with water or juice.
  • Mix your dose in water, fruit juice, or tomato juice and use a straw to help keep the iron supplement from getting on the teeth.
  • Existing iron stains can usually be removed by brushing with baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) or hydrogen peroxide 3%.

 

What are the interactions with iron?

As EBMfer liquid is recommended once a day and few hours before or after taking other medications, it should be possible to safely adjust the dosage schedules and thereby minimizing possible interaction in the GI tract.

Ascorbic acid, or vitamin C, strongly enhances iron absorption. It releases non-heme iron bound to inhibitors. The effect is strongest when vitamin C containing foods are eaten with foods containing high levels of inhibitors. For instance, a glass of orange juice can help minimize the effect of phytate in breakfast cereal and calcium in milk.

Inhibitors of iron absorption

Enhancers of iron absorption

Phytates: Whole grains e.g. rice, cereal bran, nuts, soybeans, nuts, seeds

Vitamin C/ ascorbic acid: fruits and veggies e.g. peppers, broccoli, grapefruit, supplements

Polyphenols e.g. tannins: lentils/ legumes, green leafy veggies like spinach, tea, coffee, cocoa, eggplant

Animal products: meat, seafood, fish, poultry

Calcium: dairy products e.g. milk, yogourt, cheese, calcium containing antacids

Citric acid

Oxalates: Chocolate, beet, rhubarb

Phosvitin: egg yolk

Medications: Tetracyclines, antacids, cholesterol lowering drugs called bile acid sequestrants e.g. cholestyramine and cholestipol, anti-ulcer medications like proton pump inhibitors e.g. omeprazole, lansoprazole, rabeprazole and H2 receptor blockers e.g. ranitidine and famotidine, thyroid medicine called levothyroxine, quinolone antibiotics like ciprofloxacin, Levodopa and methyldopa, Mycophenolate Mofetil (CellCept), Penicillamine, Bisphosphonates (Alendronate, etidronate)

 

Ferrous Ascorbate in EBMfer liquid (providing 5 mg elemental iron per mL of liquid) offering the “built-in vitamin C advantage” that helps increase iron absorption in convenient once-daily dosing with food.
