    Lightbulb Recommendations for Supplements

    I need help with supplements. I have taken generic iron pills from the grocery store, ferrous sulfate liquid, Ferralet 90 and Folcalgen. They have all caused me stomach issues with reflux and now I am having sore throats from the reflux. Any recommendations? My doctor is willing to help me find something that works, but I thought I would come here to where others have trialed and errored more products.

    I don't know how many mg you take but I chose to take Ferrous Gluconate and have had absolutely no stomach trouble and I do have GERD and a history of an ulcer. At the very beginning, I think I may have had some gas issues but didn't last long. I've taken one pill a day since February 2 and am now anemia free. I buy a decent brand from ******. And it might be a good idea to take it with a bite of food, a meal or better, a small glass of orange juice. The vitamin C helps it to absorb. I think any issues you have with gluconate will be minor and probably short-lived. If you take a PPI for your GERD, take it early in the morning and take the iron around 10 am or so. You don't want to take the two close together. You hear a lot about iron and stomach issues and people can and do have it. But not everyone has problems with the iron. I guess a lot depends on how much you take.
