Indications:

  • The requirement for iron is increased during pregnancy and lactation, with iron requirements increasing by 66% in pregnancy.
  • Iron is contraindicated in haemochromatosis.
  • Iron can negatively impact zinc absorption when taken on an empty stomach.
  • Calcium may reduce the absorption of iron; however, little effect has been observed with calcium supplementation at doses of 1000-1500mg daily.
  • Concurrent use of iron with ACE inhibitors, levodopa, carbidopa, quinolone or tetracycline antibiotics, and L-thyroxine may result in reduced medication efficacy. Take medication two hours before or 4-6 hours after iron intake.
  • Concomitant use of iron with antacids, cholestyramine, H2-receptor antagonists, haloperidol or proton-pump inhibitors may reduce iron efficacy.
  • Concurrent use of iron with cimetidine, penicillamine or sulfasalazine may reduce both iron and drug efficacy. Separate doses by at least 2 hours.
