Dr. Neha D. Khodke pl advise

Mrs Chhoker

Yes you should not take them together, y don't you first take calcium n after some time iron n repeat it; twice a day

Rebecca Prakash

Iron in the morning and calcium in the night. Iron should not be taken in the night as it leads to constipation next day.

Dr. Neha D. Khodke

Iron needs to be taken after a good meal. Better to take iron in the morning after breakfast since it is heavy. Calcium can be taken in the evening on empty stomach or after a snack
