What is the ideal gap between taking iron and calcium tablet??


I am taking calcium tablet afternoon meal and iron tablets after dinner.

Amrita Sharma

Generally iron tablets are taken in afternoon and calcium after dinner. But gap btwn the two must be 4 to 5hrs.

What about (a to z tablet) should it be taken with iron or calcium ??
After changing my tablets my routine has been changed fully.
Im taking iron twice then what will be the gap.
