HAVE TROUBLE REMEMBERING TO TAKE YOUR MEDICATION?

Set a reminder on your mobile device, watch, or laptop, or link taking your medication to something else you do 2 hours after a meal so that it becomes a habit (for instance going for a morning break at work, putting pajamas on in the evening, etc.)

In a large, randomized, double-blind trial, carbonyl iron dosed at 600 mg was tolerated with digestive side effects similar to those observed with a 60 mg dose of ferrous sulfate.
