I have to take iron because I'm anemic but need to take an heartburn medicines for my acid reflux/indigestion. On the Drugs.com Interactions Checker, this combination of drugs inhibits the absorbtion of iron; is there a happy medium?
I did find that you can take iron and zantac as long as you take the iron an hr before the zantac. Check with your dr because he may just want you to keep taking whatever you are taking for your stomach and just take a higher dose of iron.
