My doc asked me to take 2 pills of 325mg of iron daily for iron deficiency.Can I take 25mg iron bisglycinate instead?How much iron bisglycinate daily?
Insufficient: 25 mg of bis glycinate is not enough to replace 325 mg of ferrous sulfate. Ferrous sulfate is less expensive. You should take it with meals and if constipation is an issue, take a fiber laxative like Metamucil.

This not proven standard. Hope help ...Read more

Omeprazole 20mg cannot take wif iron tablet(sangobion) ? I already take for 2mths together with iron tablet but wif 2hrs apart. Scare iron not absorb
You're OK: Iron is absorbed in a more acid environment, that's why you need to separate the pills. But ppis like Omeprazole can lower your acid so far that they impact iron absorption all day. They also can make osteoporosis worse, lead to infections like pneumonia and colitis, and shouldn't be taken forever. If you have reflux, you should consider an antireflux procedure or surgery. ...Read more
