Reviews for Iron polysaccharide
Poly Iron (iron polysaccharide): "no side effects, no interactions, twice a day . I take this after having open heart surgery"
ProFe (iron polysaccharide): "Was prescribed ferrous sulfate because I was feeling tired and weak also I don't eat very well. Anyway, I couldn't stand the constipation and nausea I was getting from the ferrous sulfate and quit taking it. They also wanted me to take it 3 times a day....what? When I returned to my Doc he gave me ProFE and what difference it made! I only take it once a day and feel wonderful! My numbers are coming up and I don't feel weak and tired. ProFe cost me around $10 and it is worth it."
Niferex (iron polysaccharide): "I had gastric bypass surgery years ago and use it for anemia related to it. It is great at absorption and very little gastric distress if any at all...WORTH the extra money and cheaper by far than IV Iron transfusion."
Niferex (iron polysaccharide): "This is the only iron I will use. Much better in terms of gastric distress. Worth the extra money."
Niferex (iron polysaccharide): "It works great but it is so expensive."
