When I became aneamic,I was told to eat iron-rich foods and bloods will be tested again after a month. My own GP is on holiday and I saw a different one this week to ask for a new prescription for Pred. He also gave me a prescription for Ferrous Sulphate 200mg twice daily. I am not sure whether to take them or not,as, like all medications, they can have side-effects, and I wonder why my own GP didn’t give me them?
Am confused, any advice appreciated.
Hi Carol. A few months ago my Doc said I was showing aneamic after a blood test and prescribed Ferrous Sulphate which didn't create any after effect problems for me considering I take other Meds but after my last blood test a different Doctor took it off my repeat prescription and said that I don't need it now. That was good as I was on 3 tablets a day which were to be taken on an empty stomach one hour before a meal or two hours after which proved a bit difficult when taking other Meds at various times. You could see how you go.Good luck. D
Yes, will probably give it a go, a few months might just make all the difference, can only hope no side effects!
Thanks for getting back to me!
