Yes almost all tablets of iron more or less but do cause acidity and it gives rise to nausea.The most important thing is that inspite of the nausea it is important for you to take iron for proper growth and development of the baby.So for the nausea please consult your Gynaec doctor and get a antacid like ranitidine prescribed and it will reduce the nausea.
