Sinaferon is a haematinic drug. Iron is very important for haemoglobin synthesis & for transportation of oxygen. Besides iron is also an essential component of myoglobin & many of important enzymes. Folic acid deficiency causes megaloblastic anemia, specially in pregnancy, because during pregnancy this vitamin (Folic acid) is not stored & at the same time the requirement is increased. Sinaferon compensates the deficiency of folic acid along with iron.
