Kdiron is indicated for the prevention and treatment of iron deficiency anemia, which may result from inadequate diet, malab­sorption, pregnancy (especially for women who have additional risk factors for iron
deficiency e.g., poor diet), menorrhagia and other causes of chronic blood loss (e.g., peptic ulcer, hemorrhoids, hook­worms), after subtotal or total gastrectomy, rapid growth during childhood, and in the
management of low birth-weight infants such as premature babies, twins, and in infants delivered by cesarean section.

Side Effects

Occasionally gastrointestinal irritation and epigastric pain with nausea. Other reported gastrointestinal effects include either diar­rhea or constipation.
Constipation is particularly more pro­nounced in elderly and may occasionally lead to fecal impaction. Harmless dark green or black discoloration of the stool may be noticed while taking oral iron.

Dosage and Administration

Although ferrous is best absorbed on an empty stomach, it is better to be taken with meals to reduce gastrointestinal irritation.
Kdiron can be mixed with water or fruit juice.
