Q:

My doc has prescribed me Iron tablet Ferrous Ascorbate, Folic Acid & Zinc Sulphate Tablet "HAEMGAIN-XT". Few days ago I came to my mom's place & this tablet is not available here so the shopkeeper suggested me to take Ferrous Ascorbate & Folic Acid Tablet "FERIUM-XT" which he is having. All the contents are same of both the tablets except zinc sulphate. Can I take this FERIUM-XT tablet for 3 days as I'm going to visit my doc on Monday evening. Please advise Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa Dr. Payal M

It is best to have the same composition as advised. There are so many substitutes available. Check them up. Search a tablet with its composition instead of brand name.
