Thanks for posting your query.
You should continue Deplatt A to prevent occlusion of angioplasty.
Do you have spasmodic pain in abdomen/ vomiting/ fever/ acidic belchng?
If yes, then your loose motion appears to be due to acute gastroenteritis.
You should consult with physician and should take complete antibiotic course, anti-spasmodics, probiotics.
If all these symptoms are absent,then it may a complication of iron capsule (using for correction of anaemia).
You should request to change the brand or stop for few days.
You should also go for thorough check up for blood pressure and continue prolomet 25 as per requirement under expert guidance of your treating physician.
Take care,
