  • What Ferrograd Folic Tablets are and what they are used for

    Ferrograd Folic is an iron and folic acid supplement. 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. The controlled-release system consists of a harmless plastic honeycomb with thousands of narrow passages containing iron. As the tablet passes through the stomach and gut the iron is released and the empty honeycomb is passed out in the stools.

    Warnings and precautions

    Talk to your doctor before you take Ferrograd Folic if you:
    • Have a family history of problems dealing with iron (haemochromatosis, haemosiderosis, iron overload syndromes).
    • Have difficulties swallowing. Due to the risk of mouth ulceration and tooth discolouration, tablets should not be sucked, chewed or kept in the mouth but swallowed whole with water.
    • If you accidentally choke on a tablet, please contact your doctor as soon as possible. This is because there is a risk of ulcers and narrowing of the bronchus occurring if the tablet enters the airways. This may result in persistent coughing, coughing up blood and/or feeling out of breath, even if the choking happened days to months before these symptoms occurred. Therefore you need to be urgently assessed to make sure that the tablet doesn’t damage your airways.

    *IMPORTANT* If you take more Ferrograd Folic Tablets than you should

    If you accidentally take more than one tablet in one day or if a child has taken the tablets, you should seek medical advice urgently.
