Iron Constipation and Anemia Prior to Brazilian Buttlift

   Some iron pills do cause more constipation (ferrous sulfate) than others (ferrous gluconate).  However, this form (ferrous sulfate) is more effective in iron-deficiency anemia.  Dividing the dose, adding more fiber and water to your diet, increasing activity, and adding a stool softener may all be ways to help.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Brazilian Buttlift Los Angeles, CA
