    Ferrous Sulphate 200mg tablets 10th Feb 16 at 4:02 PM
    I've been buying these tablets for my daughters for 2/3 years and always paid around £4 -£4.50 for 100 in Boots.
    I went in there the other day and was quoted over £26 for the same tub.
    I've emailed Boots but they are now saying that I was always under charged before which I find hard to believe.
    Has anybody else experienced this price hike for these tablets? Is there a world shortage of iron?! I would love to know what's going on. And is there anywhere I can get some at a reasonable price?
    Starting weight on 22/6 14st 00lbs. Weight on 15/2 10st 11lbs. Lost 3st 3lbs.Target 9st 12lbs. 13lbs left.

    It's a waste of time having prolonged courses of iron once you've restocked body stores. 200 mg a day is a massive dose, the iron will not be utilised and will accumulate. You shouldn't take it outwith a medical prescription for such a long time. I presume the original cause of the anaemia has been diagnosed? Not all anaemia is iron deficiency.
