Anyone taken it?

Does it help?

Just taken my first one, and its revolting!

Jimjams Thu 21-Jul-05 19:26:40

put it in orange juice.

was that for iron? I took flouradix (from health shop) and it wasn't so bad and it did help

LOL! Read this as Spat One and wondered what you'd spat!

Sounds like you nearly did though

Miaou Thu 21-Jul-05 19:30:31

Ditto hunker! Glad it wasn't just me!

It's mineral water naturally high in iron- meant to be better than floradix.

take it every day usually in orange juice.

Can't tolerate other iron tablets and naturally inclined to be anemic.

I read it as Spa tone and though it was a massaging device - honestly these pharmaceutical companies spend all this money to come up with names that sound like other stuff.

can't taste it in ribena . You will get used to it- honest!

good for not making you constipated

Is your baby due yet ? I took it for about 3 weeks before dd was due to increase my iron levels.

Don't know if it did the trick, but the midwife was less alarmed when I told her after she had looked at my iron levels

Due in October..... did put it in orange juice, but didnt mix it so got the after taste at the end of the juice! Mingin! Just wondered how long it took to work, as MW at hopsital said allow a week but i knw iron tablets took longer

It does work and I found a bit of apple juice hid the taste better than orange. It really helped me and kept my blood count right up when I really needed it!

I thought it said Spat One too, and was wondering what on earth it could be.

Mojomummy Fri 22-Jul-05 09:25:18

I think about 1 or 2 weeks be DD should be ok ?

Yes, it has a metallic taste to it ? I think I just you to knock it back & then grimace afterwards !
