Answer: Hello , Iron and calcium tablets should not taken together there is no side effect as such but you can keep a gap of 2 to 4 hours . You can have iron tablets along with some citrus fruit juice or just fruit like orange or orange juice and lime juice because iron gets absorbed well if you have with citrus fruits also calcium tablets can be had at night as it gets absorbed well and we need rest as well also after having calcium tablet you can have a glass of milk . Also if you are having iron tablets you tend to have constipation and your stool also may turn dark so nothing to worry about it it's normal also have more fruits, fiber rich foods and plenty of water to avoid constipation. Also please call up doctor if you have any doubt.
