Ferrous Fumarate tablets contain a form of iron called ferrous fumarate. Iron is usually found in foods and is necessary for the normal development of red blood cells.
A lack of iron affects the development of the red blood cells and causes a reduction in the number of red blood cells found in the body (iron deficiency anaemia).
Therefore, ferrous fumarate tablets are used to prevent or as a iron deficiency anaemia treatment. In addition, the prevention of anaemia during pregnancy usually requires a combination of iron and folic acid. Iron tablets are the anaemia treatment of choice.
It is a condition which occurs when you have an abnormally low amount of red blood cells. Red blood cells contain haemoglobin, a red pigment which gives blood its colour.
