Overdose Reactions
Symptoms: Nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, haematemesis and rectal bleeding. Hypotension, coma and hepatocellular necrosis may occur later. Treatment: Empty stomach contents by gastric lavage within 1 hr of ingestion. In severe toxicity, IV desferrioxamine may be given. Whole bowel irrigation may also be considered in severe poisoning.
Drug Interactions
Oral absorption of iron may be increased when taken with ascorbic acid. May reduce the absorption of quinolones and tetracyclines when taken concurrently via the oral route. Concurrent admin with antacids may reduce the absorption of ferrous fumarate from the GI tract. May reduce the absorption of penicillamine in the gut when taken concurrently.

Mechanism of Actions
Ferrous fumarate is an iron preparation that is used in the prevention and treatment of iron deficiency. The amount of elemental iron is 330 mg/g of ferrous fumarate.
Absorption: GI iron absorption depends on the amount of stored iron in the body; absorption is higher when stored iron is low.
Distribution: Ferrous iron passes through the GI mucosal cells, bind to transferrin and is then transported to the bone marrow and incorporated into haemoglobin.
Excretion: Mainly through the faeces and desquamation of cells e.g. skin, hair or GI mucosa.
Administration
Should be taken on an empty stomach. (Best taken on an empty stomach. May be taken w/ meals to reduce GI discomfort.)
