i've got confused whether my doc asked me to take iron nd calcium tabs two times a day or only once in 24 hrs. medicines that he have given me are ferrous sulphate & folic acid tabs ip and colecalciferol (500+250IU).

Sonali Shivlani

The general prescription is once a day. Please do not take iron and calcium together.


oh shit man! maine ek ya do baar to sath me le li h iron aur cal ki tabs. but do din se maine cal bnd kr rkhi thi. abse ek subah aur ek sham ko liya krungi. thank u so much sonali.

Vidhi Dawesar

what is the reason behind for not taking them together? I had been taking them together along with folate.

Shyama Santhosh

even I have been taking them together at night

Saima Tariq

Never Take Both The Tablets Together..
Their Efficacy gets affected a lot..

It is best to Take Calcium after Breakfast & Iron after Lunch.

Only One Tablet of Each in a Day.

vartika jindal

Just take iron after lunch and calcium in the night post dinner. This gap ensures no effects and perfect harmony.


the tablet will not give the desired effect to your body if taken together. hence best take after breakfast calcium and iron after dinner


u r ryt sanha nd thank u all
