Hello doctor,

I have been advised to take Zincofer-XT tablet, but this is not available anywhere. Actually, my total iron binding capacity (TIBC) was 450, transferrin saturation was 10.29 and MCHC was 36.8. However, this tablet is not available anywhere. Can you recommend an alternative with the details regarding the time and the duration for which it has to be taken?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • As this drug is composed of Iron supplement and Folic acid, you can take any available Iron and Folic acid supplement even as two separate medications.
  • You can take it in the morning with orange juice to increase iron absorption.
