Constipated change of bowel habits
so a few months ago I had blood work done and it showed that I was iron deficient. I have been taking iron tablets for about a month and have noticed a change in bowel habits. I used to go every morning and now i go every second or third day. Is this a common side effect or should I go see my GP?
@leyla yes iron pills will disrupt your digestion and bowel habits. you should take stool softeners with them to help you. I don't understand why you are taking them for so long. I had an iron deficiency and was given pills for 10 days. I would try to stop those and tell the doctor about your issues. Good Luck.
