Action And Clinical Pharmacology: Vitamin E is a fat soluble vitamin which is present in many foods and exists in a variety of forms. It is considered an essential element of human nutrition, with many of its actions related to its antioxidant properties.
Indications And Clinical Uses: A nutritional supplement for the treatment of vitamin E deficiency.
Vitamin E deficiency states are rare, but have been noted in premature and some full-term infants and in patients with impaired fat absorption.
Precautions: Vitamin E may increase the hypoprothrombinemic response to oral anticoagulants, and can intensify an existing coagulation defect produced by vitamin K deficiency that is the result of either malabsorption or anticoagulant therapy. Doses in excess of recommended daily nutrient intakes should be avoided in patients on oral anticoagulants. Vitamin K status should be monitored in cases of malabsorption.
Adverse Reactions: Diarrhea and intestinal cramps have been reported with daily doses of 3 200 IU of vitamin E.
Dosage: Standard oral doses are variable and empirical.
