Ferrous Sulphate tablets belong to a group of medicines called iron supplements. These medicines work by replacing body iron. Iron is a mineral that the body needs to produce red blood cells. When the body does not get enough iron, it cannot produce the number of normal red blood cells needed to keep you in good health. This condition is called iron-deficiency anaemia. Ferrous Sulphate tablets are used for the prevention and treatment of iron-deficiency anaemia.

Do not take Ferrous Sulphate tablets and tell your doctor if you:
are allergic (hypersensitive) to dried ferrous sulphate or any of the other ingredients in Ferrous Sulphate tablets (see section 6).
are receiving repeated blood transfusions
are receiving iron intravenously
have a disorder in which there is excessive absorption and storage of iron such as haemochromatosis.
Check with your doctor or pharmacist before taking Ferrous Sulphate tablets if you have:
haemolytic anaemia
a blood disease (haemoglobinopathy)
an iron storage or absorption disease
gastrointestinal disease

Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription. Especially:

tetracyclines (to treat infections)
ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin, ofloxacin (to treat infections)
antacids (containing magnesium or aluminium)
medicines containing zinc, calcium, phosphorus or trientine
methyldopa (to treat high blood pressure)

3. How to take
Always take Ferrous Sulphate tablets exactly as your doctor has told you. If you are not sure, check with your doctor or pharmacist.

Food and drink
Ferrous Sulphate tablets should not be taken within one hour before or two hours after eating or drinking the following products: tea, coffee, milk, eggs and whole grains. These products can reduce the absorption of iron. Meat and products containing vitamin C can increase the absorption of iron. Follow the advice of your dietician or doctor when taking Ferrous Sulphate tablets with any of the food or drink listed.

Swallow the tablets whole with water. Although iron preparations are best absorbed on an empty stomach, they may be taken after food to reduce gastrointestinal side effects.
