Read moreVitamin B complex & Vitamin C is indicated in the treatment of patients with deficiencies of, or increased requirement for, vitamin B-complex and vitamin C. Such patients and conditions include:
Decreased intake because of restricted or unbalanced diet as in anorexia, diabetes mellitus, obesity and alcoholism.
Reduced availability during treatment with antimicrobials which alter normal intestinal flora, in prolonged diarrhea and in chronic gastrointestinal disorders.
Increased requirements due to increased metabolic rate as in fever and tissue wasting, e.g. febrile illness, acute or chronic infections, surgery, burns and fractures.
Stomatitis, glossitis, cheilosis, paraesthesias, neuralgia and dermatitis.
Micronutrient deficiencies during pregnancy or lactation.

Specific combined vitamin preparations
Vitamin-B complex & Vitamin C act as coenzymes of vital enzymes associated with crucial physiological processes, energy metabolism, cell growth and replenishment especially in brain and nerve cells and gives better synergistic action. Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant and helps in collagen formation. Intravenous administration of this combination gives prompt action with fine pharmacological properties in body in terms of efficacy and tolerability.
Dosage of Becosules Gold
One capsule daily or as advised by the physician.
Administration of Becosules Gold
Instructions for use or handling-Adults and children weighing 10 kg or more: The contents of one vial are dissolved by the aseptic addition of 10 ml of one of the following: 1. Water for injection. 2. Fat emulsion (10%). 3. Glucose solution, electrolyte-free (5% to 60%) Children below 10 kg: The contents of one vial are dissolved by aseptic addition of 10 ml of one of the above 3 solutions. But the dose should be given as 1 ml of the dissolved mixture per kg body weight per day. This IV Injection may be added to parenteral nutrition admixtures containing carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids, electrolytes and trace elements provided that compatibility and stability have been confirmed.
Interaction of Becosules Gold
Vitamin B6 can reduce the effect of levodopa. Folic acid may lower the serum concentration of phenytoin. Other drugs should not be added to this IV Injection mixed with fat-soluble vitamins, due to the possibility of physical incompatibilities.
Hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients of this preparation
Side Effects of Becosules Gold
Hypersensitivity reactions have been reported with thiamine and folic acid, although these are rare.
Pregnancy & Lactation
Animal reproduction studies or clinical investigations during pregnancy have not been carried out with this preparation. However, there are published reports on safe administration of water soluble vitamins in this patient group.
Precautions & Warnings
The use of this capsule in patients with deficiency or increased requirement of Vitamin B-complex and Vitamin C should be accompanied by specific therapy for the primary illness.Treatment with this capsule should be continued only until the deficiency is corrected or the need for supplementation exists. Pyridoxine in this capsule may reduce the therapeutic effects of levodopa in Parkinson’s disease.Riboflavin in this capsule may color the urine yellow. During treatment with this capsule the urine may give a false positive result for sugar by Benedict's test because of the presence of ascorbic acid. Therefore, a test not affected by ascorbic acid should be used.
Store in a cool and dry place, away from light and children.

Mode Of Action
Vitamin B-Complex and Vitamin C function as cofactors of various enzymes which regulate carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism. Thiamine (B.,) acts as a cofactor in the decarboxylation of keto acids such as pyruvic acid.Riboflavin (B2) plays a vital role in cellular respiratory reactions in conjunction with nicotinamide.Pyridoxine (B6) takes part in decarboxylation and interconversion of amino acids. It is also required for normal antibody-mediated and cell-mediated immune responses.Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) is required for synthesis of DNA (deoxyribo-nucleic acid) and maturation of RBCs (red blood cells). Nicotinamide (niacinamide) plays a vital role in cellular respiration in conjunction with riboflavin.Calcium Pantothenate functions as a cofactor for enzymes involved in transfer of acetyl groups. It is also required for normal antibody response in conjunction with pyridoxine.Folic acid, after conversion in the body to folinic acid, takes part in reactions involved in the synthesis of nucleotides and maturation of RBCs in conjunction with vitamin B12. It also plays an important role in lymphocyte-mediated immune response.Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) takes part in biochemical reactions involving oxidation, as in collagen synthesis, and in conversion of folic acid to folinic acid. It is also necessary for normal phagocytic function ofWBCs (white blood cells).Thus an adequate supply of these water-soluble vitamins is required for the optimum function of various cells and tissues.Except for Vitamin B12, these water-soluble vitamins are not stored in the body to any significant extent, the excess quantities being excreted in the urine. Therefore, a regular and adequate intake of them is necessary to meet the metabolic requirements. Deficiencies of water-soluble vitamins often co-exist because of their overlapping dietary sources and metabolic interdependence. Initially the deficiency of these vitamins may be subclinical and demonstrable only by means of biochemical tests. If not corrected at this stage, it may become manifest as various symptoms, including impaired wound healing and increased susceptibility to infection. Classical deficiency diseases such as beri beri, pellagra and scurvy are rare, whereas mild and subclinical deficiencies are probably more common, even among apparently healthy individuals.
