Ferrous Sulfate

Drug Info for ferrous sulfate

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 is short for ferrous sulfate, which is an iron supplement. Ferrous is used to treat iron deficiency anemia. People with anemia have less red blood cells than normal. Ferrous is a generic drug also sold under various brand names. Ferrous has been available for medicinal use for many years. In the treatment of iron deficiency anemia, ferrous is the standard treatment.
