Drug Info for ferrous gluconate

Iron (ferrous fumarate, ferrous gluconate, ferrous sulfate) is used to treat or prevent anemia (a lower than normal number of red blood cells) when the amount of iron taken in from the diet is not enough. Iron is a mineral that is available as a dietary supplement. It works by helping the body to produce red blood cells.

Ferrous Gluconate is a generic medication used for treating patients with low iron levels in the blood. You can use our OptionRx savings offer to get an average Ferrous Gluconate discount of up to 80% off of the retail price at participating pharmacies near you.
