Diet is the rich source, try to take more of iron, jaggery, pomegranate, beetroot, green leafy vegetables etc. Instead of injections take iron, folic acid supplements.

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.

Follow your ongoing doctor advice and if he asks for orofer fcm there is high chance for increasing the hb without any complications and it is one of the safest medication to give intravenously

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?
