What is multivitamin with fluoride (Poly-Vi-Flor)?

Multivitamins provide essential vitamins and minerals that are not taken in to the body through diet.

Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel, which helps prevent dental cavities. In most major U.S. communities, fluoride is put into the water supply.

Multivitamin with fluoride is used as a supplement to the diet of infants and children who do not receive adequate fluoride through drinking water. Multivitamin with fluoride is also used to prevent tooth decay in people treated with radiation, which may cause dryness of the mouth and increased risk of tooth decay.

Multivitamin with fluoride may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

What is the most important information I should know about multivitamin with fluoride?

Taking in too much fluoride can cause an irreversible condition called fluorosis. This condition can permanently damage teeth and possibly other cells in the body.

Do not use this medicine without the advice of a doctor. Multivitamin with fluoride should not be used if the level of fluoride in the drinking water is adequate (0.6 parts per million or higher).Check with your local water department if you are unsure about the level of fluoride in the drinking water.

Be sure that a child using this medicine is not taking in extra amounts of fluoride by swallowing toothpaste, or drinking water from sources that contain adequate levels of fluoride.

Do not take this medication with milk, other dairy products, calcium supplements, or antacids that contain calcium. Calcium may cause your body to absorb less of the multivitamin with fluoride.

Avoid taking any other multivitamin product within 2 hours before or after you take multivitamin with fluoride. Taking similar vitamin products together at the same time can result in a vitamin overdose or serious side effects.
