Is anyone else having problems getting Fersaday Ferrous Fumarate tablets at the moment? Can anyone recommend an alternative?
I have been taking 2 tablets for a long time now, as prescribed by the doctor for severe lack of iron (and for me very low ferritin). I can now grow my hair and it is so much thicker than it has been for years. I stopped the tablets a little while ago (I think about 2 months) because I was going to have a blood test and had run out of tablets. Typically didn't get round to doing the test and then started feeling awful after about a month and half, but can't get any more at the moment.
The pharmacist in Boots told me that there is a problem with the manufacturing at the moment, so I couldn't even order. She also said that she had heard that they may not be stocking them because they are about to leap in price from the £2.40 that they have been to £25!!
Can anyone recommend an alternative? I got something from the health food shop but it is not having any effect.
