    check with your pharmacy, they do have coated tablets which are easier to swallow than the normal ones

    Spartone is the one I have been taking. Comes in little sachets that you can mix with orange juice. I also got Ferrous Fumerate Liquid prescribed by the doctor which is mega strong, tastes like blood unless mixed with orange juice.

    just to add you can get Spartone from Boots on the 3 for 2 multi vit offer if they are still doing it.

    I've also been taking Spatone. Apparantely taking it with fresh OJ helps your body absorb it.
