Thanks for writing to us.
Both are almost the same products and can be interchanged without making any difference to the treatment. Just be sure to take it with water half an hour before meal.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Thanks for your query.

Orofer XT and Ferium XT are both Iron preparations, but the manufacturing companies are different.

You can take either of them depending on which suits you better.

Thank you.

Wishing you good health
