Tablets and ampoules.
Tri – B ampoules contain three factors of vitamin B complex BI, 86, Bl2 which are essential for the performance of the normal metabolism and proper functioning of the living cells. Vitamin 8t forms the co-enzymE.’ eo-carboxylase which catalyses the decarboxylation of pyruvic acid and other keto-acids.
Vitamin 86 is a constituent of the enzyme system which is concerned with transamination and decarboxylation of amino-acids. Vitamin 812 in addition to its haematinic and anabolic functions fulfils an important role in the treatment of neurological disorders. Tri-R tablets, in addition to vitamins BI, B6, B12 , contain folic acid which is necessary for the normal production of red blood cells including maturation of mcgatobtasts into normoblasts.

excreted in urine and small amounts from bile.
-After oral administration, it’s ahsorbed from GIT, metabolized and stored in liver and excreted in urine.

– Colchicine may interfere with vitamin BI2 absorption leading to megaloblastic anaemia.
– Reduced absorption of vttamin Bl2 was observed in case of patients receiving potassium citrate or calcium gtuccnare with metfurmin.
– Biochemical interactions occur between pyridoxal phosphate and certain drugs as Isoniazid (increase urinary excretion of vitamin B6) Penicillumine (prolonged use), cycloserine and hydralazine.
– Vitamin B6 enhances peripheral decarboxylation of levodopa and reduces its effectiveness thus must be avoided in patients receiving levodopa.
– The effect of folic acid may be diminished in patients receiving barbiturates, and ce- trtmoxazcle.
– Folic acid should not be given to patients using anticonvulsants as Phenytoin, phenobarbitone or primodone since it
reduces their blood levels.
– Sulphasalazine can Impair the absorption of folie acid in the gut.
