Trinsicon is a multivitamin used to help treat or prevent low levels of iron. It contains iron with B12, vitamin C, folic acid, and intrinsic factor. Generally, this medication is well tolerated, especially when the directions are followed, including taking this medication as directed by your physician. It may be taken with food or a meal if stomach upset occurs. Take each dose with a full glass (8 oz or 240 ml) of water, unless your doctor directs you otherwise. Swallow it whole. Do not crush or chew. Do not lie down for 30 minutes after taking this medication. It is important not to exceed the recommended dosage.
The common side effects for this medication are constipation and stomach upset. This is largely due to the iron component and can be minimized by eating a meal when taking the tablet, and by using a stool softener for extended complications with constipation. If all the instructions have been followed and the side effects become more intense, you should consult your health care professional.
You may also consider working with your pharmacist to find an alternative medication. There are several brand names for this vitamin that you could try to see if you experience lesser side effects. Iron is also formulated as a slow-release product.
