chiming in from July EC..if you eat cereal--chex cereals have 50% iron daily intake in one cup. I eat that every morning (big bowl). GL ..i take otc iron and its fine for me (take w/food and no stomach issues).

That sounds horrible! I hope the changes to your diet are enough to bring up your iron!

And here I thought they caused constipation?! Sorry you got so sick, but glad you are feeling better. My OB just had me add iron tablets but so far I haven't had any issues.

I looked up info on Mayo Clinic and Micromedex---they can cause constipation but can also cause stomach pain, vomiting, diarrhea and cramping.
