Yesterday, in the morning, I took my normal dose of birth control, (ortho tri-cept). At lunch I took a 500mg Iron supplement, and after dinner I took a Prevacid. I thought my tummy was going to crawl out of my body. Horriable cramps. Today, I haven't taken anything just to let things settle. That was first time I've taken Iron in long time. Was it too strong a dose? Could it have reacted with something else I was taking?
