Wendy, I wanted to warn you about something: taking proton pump inhibitors( acid blockers) like Zantac, Prilosec, Acifex,etc can make your body unable to absorb oral iron! This happened to me: I was taking Acifex for GERD, and having extremely heavy periods and the combination caused my Hgb to drop to 4 which is almost incompatible with life! I had 3 transfusions and many many IV iron infusions to get me to healthy level. Currently I see my hematologist every 3-6 months for monitoring and go in for the IV iron whenever I drop my Hgb below 10.
