Similarly, it is asked, what does ferrous sulfate treat?
Hemoglobin carries oxygen through your blood to tissues and organs. Myoglobin helps your muscle cells store oxygen. Ferrous Sulfate is an essential body mineral. Ferrous sulfate is used to treat iron deficiency anemia (a lack of red blood cells caused by having too little iron in the body).
When should you take ferrous sulfate?
Take ferrous sulfate on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal. Avoid taking antacids or antibiotics within 2 hours before or after taking ferrous sulfate . Take this medication with a full glass of water. Do not crush, chew, break, or open an extended-release tablet or capsule.
How many times a day should I take ferrous sulfate?
If ferrous sulfate is being used to treat anaemia, it is usually given twice or three times each day. Twice a day: this should be once in the morning and once in the evening. Ideally, these times are 10–12 hours apart, for example some time between 7 and 8 am, and between 7 and 8 pm.
