Ease of Use
I am 14 yeas out from a gastric by-pass. Iron can be a problem for by-pass patients. My type bypasses 6 feet of small intestine therefore iron is a problem. Many years my iron ferritin levels were very low at 7 and below requiring iron transfusions. I have been taking this iron for a year and my ferritin is up to 52. Finally after 14 years I have found an iron that works!

Ease of Use
I have more energy, but I am having 5-7 episodes of diarrhea each day, intense abdominal pain and no appetite. I've been on Ferocon for 10 days now, so I'd think my body would have adjusted to it by now. I'm calling tomorrow to see if I should be switched to something else.
