I would like you to verify that the capsules don't contain sugar. I wouldn't think so. Of course the syrup form most likely does. For true iron deficiency dexorange capsules probably don't contain sufficient iron. Do they make your stools blackish? Your MD, who knows your iron level can advise you best.
