For the prevention and treatment of iron-deficiency anaemia.

Ferrous Sulphate 200mg Tablets are for preventing folic acid and iron deficiency during pregnancy. Ferrous Sulphate Tablets work by restoring iron to your body. When the body does not get enough iron, it cannot produce the number of normal red blood cells needed to keep you in good health.

These tablets contain two active ingredients: Ferrous Sulphate and Folic Acid. Ferrous Sulphate is a form of iron, and Folic Acid is one of the members of the B vitamin group. Both are essential to a healthy pregnancy, safe delivery, and healthy baby. Both iron and folic acid are needed to help the body produce red blood cells. When the body does not get enough of these nutrients, anaemia can develop.

During pregnancy, your need for iron and folic acid increases. This is due to the mother increasing her production of red blood cells to supply the foetus and placenta.

How to take Ferrous Sulphate 200mg Tablets:  

  • 1 tablet daily.
  • Take these tablets with a glass of water.
  • You are advised to avoid the following for one to two hours before and after taking this medicine: tea, coffee, milk, eggs and whole grains. This is because these products can reduce the absorption of iron.
  • Meat and products containing Vitamin C can increase the absorption of iron; your dietician or doctor may or may not advise you to take these with Ferrous Sulphate Tablets. Always follow their advice.
  • If your symptoms do not improve or you feel worse you should consult your doctor. If you forget to take a dose, take one as soon as you remember. Then go on as before. 
  • DO NOT take two doses at the same time. If you are worried ask your pharmacist or doctor for advice.
  • Check the label to see how many tablets to take and how often to take them.
  • If you are not sure how to take them ask your pharmacist or doctor. The usual dosage(s) are described below:
