Hi, I’ve just been prescribed this, to be taken twice a day. Not to be taken at the same time as the ferrous fumerate that I take 3 times a day. I haven’t got the info sheet with me but it some thing about not taking within 2 or 3 hrs before and after certain foods and the iron tablets. It feels like a question on a GCSE for problem solving. Any advice please ?

Consultation with your local pharmacist, perhaps? He/she should be able to advise on the best dosing regime for you, taking account of everything you are on and how they interact. Alison

Cheers, I’ll give them ago again. The chemist advised not to take within 2 hrs of ferrous fumerate. It was only when I spent the evening throwing up that I read the leaflet. I was never one for reading instructions. Think I’ve learnt my lesson there.
