Cari I can tell you the trick of taking floradix (man it's bitter!)...it's the only iron my stomach can take so i've had to find coping strategies! LOL
Pour a cup of orange juice and dump in the floradix. Grab a straw, stir well and drink it fast as you continue stirring the end of it (you want to get the bottom stuff first so your last drink is OJ!).
It makes it totally doable!
