Product details

What is Sytron Syrup - Sodium Feredetate

Sytron is an oral solution for adults, children and babies to treat iron-deficiency anaemia caused by too little iron in the body. The form of iron used in this product means that it is less likely to cause stomach upsets than other iron-containing medicines, and will not discolour teeth. It is taken by:

  • People with iron deficiency anaemia (especially children)
  • Pregnant women when other forms of oral iron may not be well tolerated
  • People who have become anaemic as a result of having rheumatoid arthritis.
