Personally, I wouldn't mess with it because there is not enough iron in it to make any difference in your iron status, and the other vitamins/minerals you can/should be getting by the foods you eat. As for the herbs, probably harmless, but you should check with your doctor and/or pharmacist to see if there are any potential interactions with any of your other meds. Purity is another issue--see www.consumerlab.com for information on contaminants found in supplements.

I'm not anti-herbal, I just like to make sure that what I take I either make myself from herbs/spices that come from very reliable sources or preferrably use what I pick on my own land or grow myself. I'm also very careful about checking for any known interactions with my other meds and any possibility that the herbs have questionable side effects. Some herbs, just like drugs, are known to cause liver or kidney damage. Please check with your doctor before starting Prohemia or any other supplement.

All my best, take care.

I know, it's frustrating! I'm right there with you. We just got insurance, but it won't cover pre-existing conditions for 9 months. I keep taking the iron pills and the Lysteda to control my bleeding (somewhat) but not making much progress because a body can only produce a finite number of blood cells per second, even if the raw materials (iron etc.) are there.

Hang in there, keep taking your iron and whatever else the doctors have you on, and keep researching like you are. Most importantly, advocate for yourself. If you think the doctors are missing something or can be doing a better job at helping you, speak up.

Be proactive and be well! Smile

I know, it's frustrating! I'm right there with you. We finally got insurance, but of course it won't pay for any pre-existing conditions for 9 months--about the same time as Obama care kicks in and forces insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions from the start of coverage. It was tempting to just wait till 2014 to get coverage.

Hang in there and keep following your doctor's orders, but keep researching like you are too. The more you know, the better you can help your doctors help you. If you feel like they are missing something or not helping you as much as they should, speak up!

Be well!
