Cautions and warnings: Consult a health-care practitioner prior to use if you have peptic ulcer, regional enteritis, or ulcerative colitis. Constipation, diarrhea, nausea, upset stomach and abdominal cramping may occur. Iron may cause stools to turn black, an effect that is not harmful. A very serious allergic reaction to this product is rare; do not use if you have an allergy to pork products. Before using heme iron polypeptide, tell your pharmacist or doctor if you are using methyldopa or other iron-containing products. Iron supplements can decrease the absorption of drugs such as tetracycline antibiotics, penicillamine, cefdinir, chloramphenicol, levothyroxine, levodopa, and quinolone antibiotics; therefore, doses of these medications should be spaced as far as possible. This product may interfere with certain laboratory tests (including testing for blood in stool), possibly causing false test results; make sure laboratory personnel and all doctors know you are taking this product. This product should not be used if you have certain medical conditions. Individuals that are pregnant, breast-feeding, or have hemochromatosis, other types of anemia, repeated blood transfusions, or stomach/intestinal problems should tell their pharmacist or doctor before using this product.
