prescripion drug i9nformation ## does anyone know what Providual is and what is it used to treat? Thanks ## Ferrous Sulfate is an iron supplement, the FDA lists its most common side effects as possibly including nausea, constipation, and dark stool.

Can I take the two together ferrous sulfate 325 mg and nitrofur mac cap 100mg? I am scared to take them both at the same time. ## Hello, Precious! How are you? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed between them, so it should be fine, unless your doctor or pharmacist has instructed otherwise. The ferrous sulfate is just an iron supplement and the Nitrofurantoin is an antibiotic. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hello Verwon. How are you?
