... I have started taking iron supplements after being diagnosed with anaemia (ferrous sulphate 300mg), and find that they give me nausea and vomiting. Does anyone have any tips or what types may be easier to tolerate? If i took a smaller dose several times a day, would that make a difference? Any advice? (10 replies)

... I finally had to try Spatone Liquid Iron and that seems fine for me but is probably not going to raise my iron levels as quickly as a higher dose of iron. But, hey, I couldn't live with my stomach feeling like that. ... (10 replies)
... I have had the same issues with oral iron - the last one I tried was Repliva and wasn't bad (tolerable for the most part - mild stomach burning but no nausea / vomitting with it).

... Maybe you can try ferrous gluconate, it's suppose to be easier on the stomach. I didn't try sulfate because I heard that it could cause stomach issues. You may be constipated? I ended up in ER with constipation-I didn't even know. I seemed regular to me, but the X-Ray showed different. HTH (10 replies)
... I'm wondering if this might be my problem? May 19th, my dr started me on Ferrous Sulfate, 324mg, 2x/day. She said this was the dose I needed to get me up to "11". I've had some stomach pains off and on, but wow- I've already got stomach issues and need a scope, but this pain is ridiculous! I'm waking up in the middle of the night in agony. :( My entire stomach area hurts... (10 replies)

... Bingo. These guys seem to think that as long as you take their script you will go--perhaps forgetting the cramping and pain you are in while waiting for things to happen.
