Re: Problems with taking multivitamins and iron
Hi cute Jenny, sorry I'm so late to reply.
"After supper", you mean right after it, don't you? Iron is better to be taken on empty stomach. So maybe you could take it just before supper. Is your iron also recommended to be taken with meal? Then 10 minutes before meal would be ok; but you should have eaten nothing at all, at least 1,5 - 2 hours before this meal. I mean your stomach must have enough acid for you to absorb the iron.
Mine says "take 30 min before meal." I'm taking Floradix, which has iron in natural form & it does not accumulate in your body. What's the iron you're taking? What form is it? It's better to take one that is chelated.
By the way, what are your thyroid meds?
