Answer: It can happen after taking iron tablet but not calcium...do not stop taking medicine...u can ask ur doc to reduce dosage of iron which might b making u feel uneasy.
Doctors generally advise that iron should be taken after meals because it is quite strong and requires some amount of vitamin C for better absorption (contained in all citric fruits and many vegetables). If calcium is taken at the same time as iron, calcium slows down the absorption of iron. Therefore, in order to get the highest absorption of both these supplements, it is better that iron is taken right after meals and calcium is taken between meals.
