I've been anaemic since age 13 and discovered I had pernicious anaemia age 17. Recently I've had alot of trouble with Ferrous sulphate, it just hasn't been agreeing with my stomach recently so my GP changed it to a slow release form called Ferrograd. I had some blood taken on Tuesday to see how things are going on Ferrograd. Even on high amounts of the sulphate my levels have never been right though and the Ferrograd is a lower dose. I haven't got the results for definite yet but I was told briefly over the phone today they aren't great and I need to make another appointment with the GP.
I am desperate not to go back on the sulphate if I can help it because I've had no problems on the slow release one. I heard there was different forms of it available (?salts) and also infusions so I was just wondering if anyone knew anything about these?
