Re: Best to take two iron pills at once, or one in AM and one in PM?

You might want to switch from antacids to a histamine 2 blocker like ranitidine (OTC) or get a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) Rx from your Dr so you can take the iron and skip the antacids. The other two are much more effective at clearing up the gastritis. If your ferritin levels don't come up within 2-3 months, you may not be absorbing it well, and an injectable may be the next step.
