Dear Lybrate user, If you have Thalassemia, iron sucrose should not be taken. Consult Physician/ Hematologist regarding this. Various daals (specially sabut) and milk (and milk products) are good sources of protein.

Hi. Can we give 5 orofer s injections at a time in 1 unit NS. Orofer 1 ampoule contains 100 mg/5 ml of iron sucrose. So instead of giving orofer fcm which contains 500 mg/10 ml, can we replace it with 5 ampoules of orofer s. Thanks.

Hi, I am 3 months pregnant now, my doctor has suggested me Anofer sp and Acucal tablets. Ever since I started taking those I feel thirsty all the time, my throat and lips are always dry no matter how much water I drink. Is it a side effect or do pregnant women normally feel these? Please clarify?

If you take Proteinex but reduce calories intake in the form of normal food and do exercises , you can reduce weight . Proteinex alone is not a weight reducer
