Ferrograd Folic Filmtabs


This medicine contains two active ingredients, dried ferrous sulphate and folic acid. Ferrous sulphate is a form of iron and folic acid is a member of the B group of vitamins. Both iron and folic acid are needed by the body for the formation of red blood cells. If the body does not receive adequate amounts of these nutrients, anaemia can develop.

This iron and folic acid supplement is designed for use by pregnant women who are at high risk of developing iron and folic acid deficiency during pregnancy. This may include women carrying twins or triplets and women who have had pregnancies close together.

The supplement will also correct mild iron deficiency anaemia if this has already developed before the supplements are started. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about whether you need to take an iron and folic acid supplement.

The absorption of iron from the gut is decreased if it is taken at the same time as coffee, tea, eggs or milk. Its absorption is enhanced if it is taken at the same time as foods or supplements containing vitamin C (ascorbic acid).

Directions

One Ferrograd folic tablet should be taken once a day, or as directed by your doctor. The medicine should be taken before food on an empty stomach. However, if the tablets upset your stomach, then you may take them with or after food.
