I did take these iron before and I think it made my IBS worse, is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening. I have been prescribed these iron tablets and do need to take them but dont want my IBS symptoms gettin worse.
There is no known contraindication of using iron tablets in irritable bowel syndrome patients, but if it has made your symptoms worse before it may happen again. Perhaps just try it for a few days ... hopefully last time your condition had a flare up due to some other reasons ... and you don't actually have any problems while taking iron tablets.
