    Expert advice for Iron

    • Your doctor has prescribed Iron to replenish your iron stores and improve symptoms of anemia.
    • It may take a few months before you have seen the full benefit of Iron.
    • Your stool colour may become black. Inform your doctor if this happens as the treatment can be changed to reduce side effects.
    • When taken on an empty stomach, Iron is absorbed faster. However, you should take it with food if you experience side effects such as an upset stomach or nausea.
    • Avoid taking Iron with milk, coffee, antacids, or calcium supplements as they can reduce the amount of medicine absorbed.
