People who are not deficient in vitamin K or who are allergic to any injection ingredients should NOT receive vitamin K1 injections. It is not clear whether vitamin K1 injection is appropriate for pregnant mothers, breastfeeding women and children. Because injectable vitamin K1 can accumulate rapidly in the body (presenting a risk of overdose), these injections should be given only after other approaches have been exhausted. Care should always be taken to limit dosage.
