Can you explain?: Ferose-f is weak, candy-fied iron and folic acid. I'm going to assume that you came to your physician with hair loss of some sort, were found to be iron deficient on a serum ferritin lab assay, and given this as treatment. You should insist on being told why you are iron-deficient if you're not a vegetarian, and the actual cause of your hair loss needs to be addressed. Get 2nd opinion.
