What Ferrograd is and what it is used for
Ferrograd is an iron supplement used to prevent and treat iron-deficiency anaemia. Iron is critical (essential)
for your body to produce normal blood red cells. Ferrograd is formulated with an inert porous matrix (Gradumet) to release iron gradually and reduce (limit) the gastro-intestinal irritation occurring with iron supplements.
Warnings and precautions
• Before taking this tablet speak to your doctor if you suffer from bowel strictures (resulting in difficult intestinal transit) as the inert core tablet may not be suitable for you.
• Ferrograd is not recommended for children under 12 years old. Acute iron poisoning is a serious risk in
the paedriatic population.
• 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 cannot follow this instruction or have difficulty
swallowing, please contact your doctor.
• Your stools may turn black whilst taking Ferrograd. If you have a test for the detection of blood in your
stools, tell your doctor you are taking Ferrograd as black stools may cause an incorrect result to the test.
