Is anyone taking a Prenatal with iron PLUS TWO Slow-fe iron pills?

I got a call today from my OBGYN's office (nurse) to tell me that I am anemic (28 weeks preg). She said to take a supplement & I told her that they already put me on Slow-fe a few weeks ago, she said well then take two! One in the morning & one in the evening. Does this sound like too much iron in addition to a Prenatal with iron?? Can't that be bad? Opinions?

  • Do what your DR tells you, just increase your fiber to counteract the extra iron so you don't get constipated.

  • If you get a lot of iron it can make you constipated
