see, nothing is without sideeffcts, not even water, both its excess as well as deficiency causes problems, but u can definately have a better molecule that suits u. u can try FERROUS ASCORBATE OR SODIUM FERIDITATE. both are newer , better and generally well tolerated in proper dosage. for dosage consult ur doctor.
