Iron Suppliment that doesn't cause constipaton?????
My iron is low and my doctor has told me to up my iron to 2X a day. At this rate I may never 'go' again!!
Does anyone know of a good supplement that has fewer side effects?
You can order them online for $38 for 90 pills, but if you order a bigger container (270 pills) the price is so reasonable.
Check it out, see if it applies to you
If you have issues with constipation, you may want to introduce fibers to your daily supplements, like Benefiber, you can get it off the shelf from any health store or drug store
Those are the type I take now, but I have the grape flavored - YUMMY! But I know from past experience that iron binds me up!
I have been adding Benefiber to my shake each morning and I make sure I get at least 64oz of water a day. I don't eat much in the way of veggies, yet.
I am not sure what else to do???
After my last blood tests my doctor told me that I was anemic and put me on Palafer. You can buy it over the counter as they told me it was cheaper than going through my drug plan because of the dispensing fee. Anyway I have not had constipation but I do now have dark stools which is a side effect of any iron supplement. You could talk to your pharmacist or doctor about it and see if it works for you.
Hope this helps.
