I was put on iron tablets(ferrous sulphate). This was in the middle of a flare up which has now passed.They gave me extreme pain and i had a blockage already, so they made me even more constipated.
my doctor has just put me on fersamel syrup, which is supposed to release the iron slowly and the side effects are less extreme.
