Mission Pharmacal Launches New Vitamin B6-Rich Prescription Prenatal Vitamin, CitraNatal(R) B-Calm
Date:3/1/2010

SAN ANTONIO, March 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Mission Pharmacal announced today the addition of CitraNatal® B-Calm to its CitraNatal® family of prescription prenatal vitamins.  CitraNatal B-Calm offers gentle prenatal nutrition plus the benefits of additional vitamin B6, which supplements a woman's own defense against severe pregnancy-related nausea and vomiting.  Emerging science suggests that vitamin B6 supplementation can be beneficial for pregnant women who suffer with severe nausea during pregnancy.

"For many women, pregnancy-related nausea and vomiting can be a serious concern," said Neill Walsdorf, Jr., president of Mission Pharmacal.  "We are pleased to offer women a prenatal vitamin option that may help provide some relief during their pregnancies, while providing the quality and comfort women have come to trust with the CitraNatal name."

As many as 85 percent of pregnant women may experience nausea and up to half may experience vomiting early during their pregnancies.  With 75 mg of vitamin B6 dosed over 24 hours, CitraNatal B-Calm may be used in conjunction with a physician prescribed regimen to help minimize these symptoms.

CitraNatal B-Calm contains 25 mg of vitamin B6 in the multivitamin and two 25 mg vitamin B6 supplements to be taken at eight-hour intervals.  Vitamin B6 is recommended by The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists as a safe and effective first-line supplementation for pregnancy-related nausea and vomiting.  The multivitamin tablet also contains a signature CitraNatal formula with gentle ingredients for mom and strong nutrition for baby, including folic acid, calcium citrate and carbonyl iron.

In addition, Mission Pharmacal is currently working to add a recently acquired, dual-iron technology into the existing CitraNatal family of prescription prenatal vitamins, including CitraNatal B-Calm, as well as Ferralet 90, a prescription oral iron supplement for the treatment of iron deficiency anemia.  The new technology is a varied release of carbonyl iron and ferrous gluconate that combines the quick uptake of a ferrous salt and the more prolonged absorption in the body of carbonyl iron.

Women who are pregnant or planning to conceive should consult their healthcare providers prior to beginning any prenatal vitamin regimen.
