GG77--I am unable to take many different kinds of vitamins because they bother my stomach and Ferris Sulfate sent me to the ER. It gave me enteritis for 3 months and caused me a lot of grief. They do make irons for people like us that are extra sensitive to supplements. If it weren't for my GI doc I wouldn't know about this. He prescribed Poly Iron 150mgs elemental high dose iron. It comes with Vitamin C already added to increase the absorption. There is also a Poly Iron150 Forte that also has B-12 in it if that is needed. It in no way causes me any problems. It's hard to believe, but it's true for me. I take it on an empty stomach and never have an upset stomach from it at all. It's worth a try in your situation because you can take up to 3X daily upon the advice of your physician. It is available OTC at the pharmacy, but you have to ask for it and sometimes they will have to order it. It is high dose iron which is what you need. You should ask about it. I feel like it saved me. I was too ill to be given IV iron and my Hgb was not yet low enough to have transfusion at 8.5 Hgb. My doctor said that even if I had a 7 Hgb, he would not recommend me to have a blood transfusion, if I were his wife. I really hope that you get some sort of help. But right now you need to be on high iron supplements, it is crucial to your health. I went through a year of hell and would not wish it on anyone. Keep us posted. FLFLOWERGIRL:)
