Iron Meds

I am 24 weeks and my iron is low. I take prenatal vitamins, but my dr. prescribed me some other iron pills to take also. I took these for a week and was so swollen I couldn't bend my toes or fingers, I haven't taken them for 3 days and I've had no major swelling, (just the basic), think this is a coincidence or anyone else experience this?

I haven't personally experienced this Teresa, but you should talk to your doctor about that. He might have an explanation for the swelling.

I read in a book, I think the Girlfriends guide, that you should eat more protein to reduce swelling. Not sure if it has to do with your iron pills, but that sure is a coincidence. When I took iron, I could only tolerate "Fero-Grad" it had a good chunk of Vit C in it, which helps to a__similate the iron better. There are several different types of iron. I forgot which iron was in Fero-Grad, but that one was agreeable w/me.
