Hi, I only recently joined this forum, despite having had the problem for many years, and the first thing I learned was to try iron. I did this, with cheap (14mg?) iron tablets from a discount store and, lo and behold, it works! The only trouble is I have IBS with constipation. The iron is wreaking such havoc on it that even my normal prescribed laxatives aren't working. I tried stopping the iron but the RLS came right back. My question is can you have Iron Bisglycinate prescribed on the NHS via your doctor, or do they only do the standard anaemia iron supplements? I'm asking because the Gentle Iron is quite expensive! Anyone who has asked for it at their GPs, or even better who is being prescribed Gentle Iron by their docs, I'd love to hear from you. Thanks!
P.S. While I'm here, if anyone has any other recommendations for avoiding constipation or helping constipation while treating with iron, I'd love to hear them. Thanks again!
