Hey there! I was just told by my Dr. that I have very low iron and that I need to take iron pills... however they make you constipated and we all know that we don't need another thing to help us not go! Does anyone else have low iron and if you take anything for it do you take anything that can counter-act the main side effect of taking iron pills? I heard vit.C pills does the trick... is this true?

Anything that is an osmotic laxative may help. Vit C., Magnesium, Stool softeners.Some people, even generally constipated people don't get the side effect. A few people get loose stools from iron pills. So don't stress out too much before you even try them.K.
