  • I had that trouble when I had to take them....I talked to my doctor about it and they told me to eat more foods that are high in iron...Kix cereal is great for it if you like it. I was able to eat 2 bowls a day of Kix and then I didnt have to worry about the pill...Talk to your doctor about it though and see what they can do about that. Hope things get better..

  • Iron is in my prenatal vitamins already and I don't have to take any extra

  • I am and my doc says it helps to have an empty stomach to have it aborb better, but I don't think you have to. Try a snack when taking it. If not, I know there are some that are designed to be easier on the tummy. I take those.

  • I on Iron pills, I have to take 2 a day. I take one in the morning while eating breakfast, and one at super. It say's on the papers that you should take them while eating, and to avoid cafine, and other meds at the same time. So I take my multi vitiman before I go to bed. Havn't had any stomic problems.
