My iron is 10.2 so I need to pick up iron tablets prescription. Just read on here that Spatone is better - should I take it with the iron tabs or instead of?

Will be taking the opportunity to eat some nice steak too.... with a nice big glass of fruit juice obv!

Hi titfer brains, when my iron was low I was taking floradix (another liquid iron similiar to spatone, but sold already in the liquid.) The doctor said it was ok to take with the pills, and I did this till my iron had risen and then cut back on the supplements, probably best to check with your midwife/doc if this is ok first though!

omg am so fed up of talking to doctors, but yes will check with them tmw. Just wish I had a direct line to someone who would answer my questions quickly and sensibly. Anyway will check out iron supp in liquid form today and see what boots say also.
