    Ferrous Sulphate=chest pain?


    I have been recommended to take 3x 200mg ferrous sulphate tablets a day to increase my iron count. However since starting to take the 3 tablets I have had a strange uncomfortable pain in my chest. Its like there is pressure on my chest or something. Has anyone else suffered from this?

    Ferrous sulphate is good at causing GI distress, such as upset stomach, reflux, acid, etc which can cause a sense of discomfort in the chest.
