Unhappy Not absorbing Ferrous Sulfate??????

Iíve been taking Ferrous Sulfate for four days now and I am not experiencing any discomfort like I did with Ferrous gloconate. My stool was black, I was constipated, and experienced a lot of other GI discomfort. Does that mean I am not absorbing the Ferrous Sulfate? My stool is not as dark and the only time I had discomfort was when I didnít take the ferrous sulfate with food. That made me sick but after that, no awful side effects.
