Abstract

This prospective randomized comparative study was performed to find out the efficacy and tolerability of Iron Polymaltose Complex over ferrous sulfate from August 2006 to July 2007. The study was conducted at Government Medical College, Miraj. In this study we included 50 adult patients of either sex with iron deficiency anemia visiting Medicine outpatient department. Adult male/female patients with mild to moderate Iron deficiency anaemia (Hb. 8 to 11gm %) were included in the study. They were divided into two equal groups for comparison. The mean rise of haemoglobin level was more with ferrous sulphate at the time of all follow ups. Adverse effects were seen more in number and intensity with ferrous sulphate. Individual efficacy of both compounds was good but Iron Polymaltose Complex was better tolerated.
