Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Of the many iron formulations, 'ferose' is the least upsetting for intestine. It may not be the cause of constipation. Check again.

Coldness of hands and feet do not occur in iron deficiency anaemia. look out for other causes.

The best option will be to see an Internist / you may need more investigations.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
