Uses
Iron supplements are used to treat or prevent low blood levels of iron (e.g., for anemia or during pregnancy).


Storage
  • Store at room temperature between 59 and 86 degrees F (between 15 and 30 degrees C) away from moisture and sunlight.
  • Do not store in the bathroom.
  • Do not freeze liquid forms of Ircon.
  • Keep out of the reach of children.


Overdose
  • If overdose is suspected, contact your local poison control center or emergency room immediately.
  • Symptoms of overdose may include unconsciousness, paleness, weak-rapid heartbeat, stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, or green diarrhea/tarry stools.

How To Use
  • Ircon is best taken on an empty stomach one hour before or two hours after meals, with a full glass (8 oz or 240 ml) of water .
  • If iron upsets your stomach, take it with food or after meals, with a full glass of water.
  • Sustained-release capsules and tablets must be swallowed whole.
  • Do not crush or chew them as side effects may be increased.
  • Take tablets or capsules of iron with a full glass of water.
  • Do not lie down for 30 minutes after taking the tablet or capsule.
  • The liquid forms should be diluted in a glass of water or juice and sipped through a straw to prevent staining of the teeth.
  • The suspension forms must be shaken well before each use; take them along with a full glass of water.
  • Do not exceed the recommended dosage.

Side Effects
  • May cause stomach cramps, constipation, heartburn, nausea, and vomiting the first few days as your body adjusts to the medication.
  • Iron can cause the stools to turn black in color.
  • This is due to unabsorbed iron and is not harmful.
  • Inform your doctor if you develop: severe stomach pains, chest pain, clammy skin, bluish-colored lips or fingernails.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Accidental overdose of iron-containing products can be very dangerous, even fatal.
  • Keep Ircon out of the reach of children.
  • If overdose occurs, call a doctor or poison control center immediately.
  • Ircon should be used during pregnancy or while breast-feeding only if recommended by your doctor.

Missed Dose
  • If you miss a dose, take as soon as remembered; 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.
  • Because iron-containing products can cause false results with certain tests that check for blood in the stools, tell the doctor or laboratory personnel you take iron.
  • Do not start or stop any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval.
