Ferrograd C Tablets contain iron and vitamin C. They are for the prevention and treatment of iron deficiency anaemia, and for the simultaneous treatment of vitamin C deficiency. The normal diet usually provides adequate iron for the average person. If the balance is disturbed by poor diet, failure of absorption, or excessive loss (e.g. through menstruation) an iron deficient state develops. Ferrograd C's prolonged release action means that one tablet a day allows release of the iron over several hours and reduces the likelihood of unpleasant side-effects such as stomach upset.
Ferrograd C tablets contain:
Dried ferrous sulphate 325mg (equivalent to 105mg elemental iron) in a prolonged release formulation and Vitamin C (equivalent to 500mg Ascorbic acid). Ferrograd C also contain methylacrylate, copolymer, magnesium stearate, ethylcellulose, hydroxypropylmethylcellulose, titanium dioxide and dye Red Ponceau 4R Lake (E124).
Always read the label. Suitable for adults and children over 12 years.
