Here are some of the common side effects listed for ferrous sulfate.
Side effects that you should report to your doctor or health care professional as soon as possible:
• allergic reactions like skin rash, itching or hives, swelling of the face, lips, or tongue
• blue lips, nails, or palms
• dark colored stools (this may be due to the iron, but can indicate a more serious condition)
• pain with or difficulty swallowing
• pale or clammy skin
• stomach pain
• unusually weak or tired
• weak, fast, or irregular heartbeat
Side effects that usually do not require medical attention (report to your doctor if they continue or are bothersome):
• nausea or stomach upset
If you see under the last segment I put in it shows a common side effect of ferrous sulfate is indigestion.
You should contact your prescriber and discuss getting some bloodwork done to find out your iron levels. You may also want to discuss taking an enteric coated form of iron. For some ideas on choices you can go to www.drugstore.com and type "coated iron" in the search engine. The first choice that comes up is a GNC product that is enteric coated. Best of luck.
