will heavy alchol consumption interfer with the effects of taking Ferrous sulfate orally for a person with Iron Deficiency Anemia
15 May 2011
Alcohol will not interfere with the iron supplement - there are no known drug interactions.
However, as already stated, excessive alcohol consumption can cause anaemia and it would be wise to try and reduce your consumption.

Yes heavy drinking will affect anemia cause for one thing it is damaging your liver and god knows what else. And will defeat the purpose of even taking an iron supplement.Should really seek help with the drinking and definitely cut down if not stop drinking completely.
