Does Ferrlecit interact with other medications or foods?

Little is known about the relationship between Ferrlecit treatment and other medications. Tell your doctor about any herbal or dietary supplements, non-prescription medications, vitamins or minerals you take. This is especially important because Ferrlecit is an iron supplement.

People who are currently taking another form of iron supplement may have their dosage decreased in order to avoid iron overload (high iron levels). Iron is found in certain foods, such as red meat, pork, seafood, poultry, eggs, iron-fortified cereals, breads and pastas, beans, peas, dark green leafy vegetables, spinach, nuts and seeds and dried fruit.

Your doctor may advise you to add more of these foods to your diet, as well as some sources of vitamin C (such as orange juice or tomatoes) to help your body better absorb iron. Ask your doctor how to incorporate a healthy amount of iron into your diet.
