I use SlowFe. I was prescribed something else initially, but had major IBS problems from it. The SlowFe is much better. It's a slow release formula. It's kept behind the counter usually, so you'll have to ask for it. Good luck.
hi i use enfamil ply-vi-sol with iron for babies..i think because its liquid it absorbs quicker i put it in something to hide the taste..hope this helps...there is also a product called maxi ferrochel and i was given the ok by my gastroenterologist to use this..i have iron defiecient anemia and i am not a big meat eater..and normal iron supplements really are hard on my stomach..

I am sorry. I don't take a supplement and uncertain what you should take. My suggestion is to talk to your pharmacist. Tell them the issues that you have with your tummy. He/She should be able to tell you a good supplement to take.

Hi ladies....so I am trying to conceive and for the time being until my prescription vitamins come in (They are chewable and ohhh so easy on my tummy), I am taking chewable gummies. They do NOT contain iron so I have to take a separate supplement. Any suggestions for an iron supplement that is NOT harsh on the tummy?? Let me know!!
