Kenadion is manufactured by Samarth. Injectable Kenadion contains Vitamin K1 (Phytomenadione).
Vitamin K is used to treat and prevent deficiencies of certain substances (blood clotting factors). These substances help to thicken 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, Kenadion helps to treat and prevent unusual bleeding by increasing the body's production of blood clotting factors.
