My husband is anemic. But iron pills make him constipated. Is there any other solution?

Dear Hadnuff,

Its so hard to find the right balance. Please talk to the doctor to review the dosage. I've been reading this is the cause of the constipation taking too much iron. I would also suggest veggie or fruit smoothies to help with the constipation. I know its a tough situation.

Talk to his doctor.

Perhaps a glass of prune juice every morning would help counteract that side effect.

There are many foods rich in iron. I'm not sure if he could manage the anemia with diet.

Talk to his doctor.
