Mission Pharmacal Introduces New and Improved Version of Top-Selling Prescription Prenatal Vitamin, Citranatal Harmony

Mission Pharmacal Company announced the availability of a new, patented dual-iron version of its premier prenatal vitamin, CitraNatal Harmony, the first and only single-pill prescription supplement with calcium citrate. The new, improved product features Ferr-Ease, a patented blend of ferrous fumarate, a rapidly absorbing iron salt, and carbonyl iron, known for its gentle, prolonged absorption. The new CitraNatal Harmony formulation provides a full spectrum of essential vitamins and minerals without causing the gas and discomfort associated with some supplements. New, gentler CitraNatal Harmony is now available in the United States as a prescription supplement to improve nutrition for women prior to conception, throughout pregnancy, and in the postnatal period. CitraNatal Harmony is safe for use by mothers who are breastfeeding their babies. CitraNatal Harmony also offers mothers and babies essential vitamins and minerals, including 250 mg of DSM's life'sDHA, in one convenient, easy-to-swallow, vanilla-scented gel cap. DHA is the essential fatty acid recommended for brain and eye development. It has been shown to support increased birth weight and size and enhance visual and cognitive abilities. The vitamin also contains a stool softener to help ease constipation that often accompanies pregnancy.

Mission Pharmacal Company Introduces Portfolio of Proven Products into Long-Term Care Environment

Mission Pharmacal Company is introducing a portfolio of proven products into the long-term care environment. The company has always held steadfast to its dedication to provide the high quality healthcare medications and treatments for a wide range of conditions and diseases. The long-term care initiative capitalizes on the resources at Mission that have fueled the tremendous expansion and growth the company has been experiencing in recent years. In the nursing home environment, the medical needs of the elderly can offer significant challenges. For example, one of the products that Mission recently introduced to the LTC market is BINOSTO(R), a prescription product that is an effervescent alendronate sodium oral solution for the treatment of osteoporosis in post menopausal women and treatment to increase bone mass in men with osteoporosis. While osteoporosis is prevalent among nursing home residents, so is dysphagia, the inability or difficulty patients can have swallowing pills. Bisphosphonates are the most common medications prescribed for osteoporosis treatment. Patients who are unable to swallow pills could not easily take alendronate treatment for their osteoporosis. BINOSTO has changed that. It is the first and only alendronate sodium tablet that can be dissolved in water to create a buffered solution for the treatment of osteoporosis. According to the CDC, 50% of nursing home residents will fall at least once this year. Naturally, good bone health is foremost on the minds of the health care teams and taking calcium and vitamin D is a proven standard of treatment. Each serving of Mission's Calcet Creamy Bites provides calcium and vitamin D for better bone health. In addition, each piece contains 500 mg elemental calcium from calcium citrate, the most readily-absorbed form of calcium, along with 400 IU vitamin D3. Dry mouth or xerostomia is a very common condition in the LTC setting. On average, nursing home residents can be on 8 to 12 medications per day which can increase the possibility of side effects like dry mouth. Another new Mission product, Aquoral, is a unique and effective prescription oral spray that moistens and lubricates the mouth for up to four hours with no known side effects. A single dose is just two sprays into the mouth; no spitting or rinsing required. More information on this innovative therapy including full prescribing information is available at aquoral.com. By bringing all of these products together, with more to follow, Mission is working with LTC providers to help healthcare professionals improve quality of care for their patients.
