FDA Issues Safety Alert for Soladek Vitamin Solution


Washington, DC: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a safety alert stating that tested samples of Soladek Vitamin Solution contained levels of vitamin A and vitamin D that were many times the recommended daily allowances for these vitamins.

Intake of excessively high levels of these vitamins poses a risk to human health. Symptoms of vitamin A toxicity include anemia, anorexia, alopecia, joint pain, bone weakness, bulging eyes, liver abnormalities, and birth defects. Symptoms of vitamin D toxicity include weakness, fatigue, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, changes in mental status, increased blood pressure, abnormal heart rate or rhythm, kidney damage, and coma.

Soladek is marketed with claims that the product treats "hypo and avitaminosis, rickets, growth, dentition, lactation, fractures, infection, convalescence, protection and regeneration of certain epithelium (bronchial, glandular, ocular, cutaneous), corticotherapy, aging and pregnancy." The product is sold in a box labeled in Spanish and containing a vial of the solution.

The FDA has received seven reports of serious health problems occurring in consumers using the product. The problems include decreased renal function, elevated levels of calcium in the blood, fatigue, heart arrhythmia, vomiting, and diarrhea.
