I don't think there is any reason you can't take them together?
U can take them together if u want its just ice that lowers ur iron
I've heard calcium inhibits iron absorption which may be why she's been told not to drink milk with the pills. I would say after an hour or two you would be okay. I always took my iron pills at night bc they made me a little sick so I never thought about it.
I would wait 2 to 3 hrs after taking the pills to drink milk because it does affect iron absorption. Google it
I would wait 2 to 3 hours my doctor told me it lowers absorption and also can make you poop shortly after which is a waist cus you poop out the little bit of iron you have taken
You shouldn't have milk 1 hr before or 2 hours after taking the iron pill.
