Vitamins Help

I'm really struggling to get back onto my diet and have developed low Vitamin D, Iron, Folic Acid levels because of it.

I have been prescribed 

Ferrous Sulphate - 200mg - One twice a day

HuxD3 - 20,000 IU Colecalciferol - One twice a week

Folic Acid - 5mg - One a day

Am I ok to take them all together? My prescription was sent electronically and now that i am back home i've realised there is no leaflet inside. all the info i have is the dose and how often.

Also, I was prescribed Laxido as i've been having lots of problems with my stomach. I haven't taken any yet as i started working nights and completely through me on when was best to take them. Since then after some tests it looks like i have IBS but wont know for sure till i have my ultrasound on the 23rd May. Should i start taking them or wait to find out the results of my ultrasound? 

Any advice appreciated, Nikki

Hi, I think it should be fine to take the vitamins all together.  As for the prescription for your stomach problems, I don't know.  I'm not a fan of taking ANY pharmaceutical drugs and it sounds to me as if you have a gut flora imbalance because of the stomach problems and IBS.  So, I really think you would be much better off taking in some fermented foods, such as Sauerkraut, kefir, something like that.  Also, cutting out sugar and refined (And starchy) carbs and upping your good fat intake.

That 'should' help a lot with your symptoms.
