M.V.I. Pediatric is a combination of vitamins indicated for the prevention of vitamin deficiency in pediatric patients up to 11 years of age receiving parenteral nutrition.

The physician should not await the development of clinical signs of vitamin deficiency before initiating vitamin therapy.

M.V.I. Pediatric is supplied as a single-dose vial of lyophilized powder for reconstitution and intended for administration by intravenous infusion after dilution.

Do not administer M.V.I. Pediatric as a direct, undiluted intravenous injection as it may cause dizziness, faintness and tissue irritation.

2.3 Preparation and Administration Instructions

  • M.V.I Pediatric is to be reconstituted and diluted only in a suitable work area such as a laminar flow hood (or an equivalent clean air compounding area).
  • Reconstitue the single-dose vial of M.V.I. Pediatric by adding 5 mL of Sterile Water for Injection USP, or Dextrose Injection USP 5%, or Sodium Chloride Injection USP to the 10 mL vial.
  • Swirl the vial gently after the addition of the diluent to hasten reconstitution. The reconstituted solution is ready within three minutes for use.
  • Visually inspect for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration.
  • Once reconstituted, immediately withdraw the dose to be added to the appropriate intravenous fluids [see Dosage Information (2.2)] and discard any unused portion. After reconstitution, complete withdrawal of vial contents within 4 hours. The reconstituted solution may be refrigerated and stored for up to 4 hours.
  • After M.V.I. Pediatric is diluted in an intravenous infusion, refrigerate the resulting solution unless it is to be used immediately, and use the solution within 24 hours after dilution.
  • Minimize exposure to light because some of the vitamins in M.V.I.Pediatric, particularly A, D and riboflavin, are light sensitive.
