How To Use

  • If iron upsets your stomach, take it with food or after meals, with a full glass of water.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Keep Slow Rel Iron out of the reach of children.

  • Slow Rel Iron should be used during pregnancy or while breast-feeding only if recommended by your doctor.

Missed Dose

  • 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.
