I tried taking ferrous sulphate 200mg tablets with calcium + vit D. This made me feel really sick all the time in spite of taking them with food.
I am currently taking ferrous fumarate 210mg tablets with 500mg vit C tablets. I am finding these a little better but not much.
Some people on this site have suggested taking spa tone sachets as they are gentler on the tummy.
I took a look at these. They contain only 5mg iron.
I am confused. Would I not have to take 40 sachets of spa tone to get the same iron content as one ferrous fumarate tablet or am I misunderstanding the labels? The recommended daily dose is only one sachet.
I really need to raise my ferritin level and if I am understanding the labels correctly then 5mg is no where near enough.
