Dosage: 150 mg
I also started taking this for anemia during pregnancy (at about 7 months), recommended by my OB. I was told for best results to take it 2hrs after and 1hr before eating, and because I was almost always eating when pregnant, I found this very difficult to follow. I ended up taking it every second day on average. Despite this, by the time of the birth, I was no longer anemic, so I'd say it worked well. It did not give me the even the slightest bit of constipation.
This product works great without causing an upset stomach, have tried other supplements but this one is the most gentle.
Can't digest the pill. If you had a gastric by pass surgery, don't waste your money on this one, regular iron pills will be digest, yes they give constipation but your body will absorb it better than this form of iron...
Continues to work very well for me with no side effects. Well worth the cost. It was also the only product to raise my iron levels in pregnancy.
After 1 box my levels went from 102 to 107. i had hoped for better results but at least the levels are not dropping anymore. In late pregnancy that is something.
So far so good. No side effects. It's been about three weeks and I will have my levels tested next week.
I have been taking this for a couple of months and found it to be easier on my stomach than Palafer and other iron supplements, will keep on taking this.
Currently taking this iron supplement during my pregnancy and am so happy that it has not caused any of the usual side effects that are associated with most iron supplements. I would highly recommend this product.
Tried a few iron supplement, non worked... tried feramax excellent on the stomach no constipation plus i have ulcers no problem! LOVE IT
I need to be on a regular iron supplement, but the first one I took really made me sick to my stomach. My doctor switched me to this one and it has made all the difference in the world! I have no side effects at all. If you need an iron supplement that is easy for your body to take, ask your doctor about this one.
I was looking for an iron supplement with no side effects and this is it. I take it daily after my lunch. I could not find it in my local pharmacy so I ordered it from here. Fast shipping and I would order from well.ca again.
As far as iron supplements go this one is excellent. No other pill gives you 150mg of ELEMENT iron in one pill. I have had none of the constipation side effects that people talk about. (I do take 1000mg of time released vitamin c with the pill to help digestion so this may be why no constipation). I did try another brand of iron and went downhill fast, losing my energy and desire to do things. This may cost more but it works and so it's worth the cost if it means feeling better. A four month blood work test showed my ferritin levels went from 9 to 24 ... still low but I certainly feel much better.
