    Bad reaction to Iron pills!

    Hello all! I have been trying to figure out if I am having a bad reaction to Iron pills. I started them a week ago. I think the first day was kind of ok. But an hour or two after I took one on Sunday I began to feel real weird, tired, dizzy shaky, anxious and nauseated. It REALLY scared me. I wasn't sure if it was the iron or not. It tooks hours to pass. NOT GOOD!! So then I didn't take one on monday, tues or wed and I was fine....then I took one today (thursday) The same thing happened again!! I was shopping at Walmart with my husband and I was beginning to feel dizzy, anxious, and nauseated. I had to run to the bathroom and I feel like I was to puke, but I can't. I was able to go #2 and it was a dark stool. So I know the iron is going through me. But this is ridiculous if I have to feel this bad. My stomach is just aching and I am so nauseated. I am already dealing with acid reflux so this is NOT good for me to be having this issue. DO you think it is the iron? If so what else can I do to get the iron level up??

    Thanks for any replies!

    Usually urine turns darker when taking any type of vitamin supplements. This indicates that your body is absorbing it.
    Eat lots of liver,beef etc. Or tons of spinach, and Spirulina if you are a vegan.
