Hi,Welcome to Health care magic forum.
As you describe it appears that iron preparations are causing irritation to your stomach, and causing diarrhea. So when ever you take it orally , you may get diarrhea.
The other alternative is the parenteral iron preparations.
You can take them in the supervision of a doctor.
I also advise you to take more of green leafy vegetables, pulses,sprouts, and protein rich foods.
Wishing a quick and complete recovery. Thank you.
