How To Use
  • Icar-C is usually taken once a day as directed.
  • Do not exceed recommended dosage.
  • Icar-C is best taken on an empty stomach, but may be taken with meals if stomach upset occurs.
  • Take with a full glass (8 oz or 240 ml) of water unless your doctor directs you otherwise.
  • Do not lie down for 30 minutes after taking Icar-C.

Side Effects
  • Most people can take Icar-C with minimal or no side effects.
  • Stomach upset may occur.
  • Stools may appear darker in color due to the iron.
  • Do not be alarmed.
  • If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Precautions
  • Do not take ferrous sulfate (iron) without consulting a doctor if you have: ulcers, colitis, intestinal disease.
  • Icar-C should be used only when clearly needed during pregnancy.
  • Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.
  • Icar-C is excreted into breast milk.
  • Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.

Missed Dose
  • Take the missed dose as soon as you remember; do not take if it is almost time for the next dose.
  • Instead, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule.
  • Do not "double-up the dose to catch up.

Drug Interactions
  • Tell your doctor of all prescription and nonprescription drugs you may use, especially of: chloramphenicol, penicillamine, methyldopa, levodopa, cimetidine, quinolone antibiotics (e.g., ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin).
  • Avoid taking iron at the same time as antacids or tetracycline antibiotics.
  • Wait at least two hours between taking iron and an antacid or tetracycline.
  • Eggs and milk decrease iron absorption.
  • Coffee and tea that is drunk with a meal or 1 hour after a meal may also decrease iron absorption.

  • Do not start or stop any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval.

Reason: Because of Restless Legs Syndrome Date: 15 July 2010
Side Effects
Even though I cannot find that these pills work for this condition, I am taking them for Restless Legs Syndrome. I am just wondering if they are the best thing to use for this or not as they do not seem to be helping this condition for me. I was recently told by someone who was visiting me that I still experience pretty bad RLS symptoms when I sleep and just wondered if I should be taking somet6hing else. Also I am experiencing daily stomach cramps and since I do have IBS and have been diagnosed with a spastic colon and having diverticuli in my colon, along with abdominal aneurysms that are calcified but very small, I am wondering if perhaps this medicine is aggravating these conditions on a daily basis.

Additional Thoughts
As I said, since I cannot find a place on-line that tells me these pills work for RLS, I am just wondering if I should be taking something else that lessens this problem for me, which daily seems to affect my sleep and maybe causes me to have very frequent stomach cramps -- usually daily.
