  • yes are you also taking extra vitamin C with them? the best advice i can give you is to make sure you drink lots of water and get extra fiber in your diet. extra iron can make you more constapated.

  • I was with all three of my pregnancies. My last one I had to take the iron pills twice a day.

  • i have had to take it with all of my kids( 2 previous) and now this one. everybody's different. some people do have different reactions to it. they actually had to keep changing mine and finally just told me to take FLINSTONE vitamins w/ iron. now i am fine having no problems. just make sure you take them because i didnt with my first and ended up having to have a blood transfusion. i learned from that
