    ferrous sulphate tablets

    Hi , i need to take ferrous sulphate pills but i have a problem swallowing them. It's just a phobia i have about taking tablets, pretty dumb i know especially as these pills are tiny, anyway my question is can i cut them into pieces? It says nothing about it in the leaflet but i've read you should not crush them or chew them because they are slow absorbing or something. I've already taken 1 after cutting it up into 4 pieces and it seemed o.k. but im worried that by cutting them open i'll be releasing all the iron at once? Thanks for any advice.

    Why not take ferrous sulphate liquid instead of tablets?
