Ferrograd Folic is an iron and folic acid supplement used to prevent and treat iron-deficiency anaemia and to prevent anaemia due to folic acid deficiency. Ferrograd Folic should only be used for the prevention and treatment of iron deficiency anaemia diagnosed by laboratory testing under the supervision of a medical doctor. Ferrograd Folic can be used by pregnant women, but only after the first thirteen weeks of pregnancy. A controlled-release system in the tablet allows release of the iron over a number of hours and reduces the likelihood of stomach irritation.
How to Use Take one tablet daily before a meal from the 13th week of pregnancy and for one month after delivery. Although iron preparations are best absorbed on an empty stomach, they may also be taken with food to reduce gastrointestinal side effects. Swallow the tablet whole with water. Do not suck, chew or keep the tablet in your mouth.
