KenadionÂ® is manufactured by Samarth. InjectableKenadionÂ® contains Vitamin K1 (Phytomenadione).
Vitamin K is used to treat and prevent deficienciesof certain substances (blood clotting factors). These substances help tothicken your blood and stop bleeding (e.g., after an accidental cut or injury).Low levels of blood clotting factors increase the risk for unusual bleeding.This may be caused by certain medications (Warfarin) or medical conditions(e.g., obstructive jaundice).
Thus, KenadionÂ® helps to treat and prevent unusualbleeding by increasing the body's production of blood clotting factors.
KenadionÂ® is given by injection intravenously orintramuscularly. It may be taken with or without food.
