I recently found out I was anemic and was told to take Slow Fe twice a day. I purchased this product on Amazon with Amazon Prime and was a little off-put by the price, despite receiving my free shipping. Later I found out I could get a bottle with 2x the amount of pills from my local pharmacy (generic pharmacy brand), and the cost was even less than what I paid on here. It's definitely a good product as I started feeling a difference in my symptoms after taking it for a week, but the price is quite high. If you need to be on these pills for a long period of time, definitely check the generics at your pharmacy first.

Novartis stop producing OTC Slow Fe iron supplement at their troubled Lincoln, Nebraska plant almost two years ago. They recently eliminated 300 jobs or 40% of their Lincoln workforce and is permanently shrinking production operations. No one at their Consumer Relationship Center will provide additional Slow Fe availability information. If purchasing on line make sure you determine the expiration date because I haven't seen or heard of any Novartis Slow Fe product with a longer date than September 2013.
Joseph Jimenez CEO of Novartis should be ashamed of the Novartis handling of the Slow Fe product problems and should inform the public and former users like myself about future availability. Paying over two dollars per table is almost robbery.
There are several products on the market that contain the same amount of "Iron (elemental)45mg 250%" one is "Equate" which is available from Amazon.

My local pharmacy has substitured another slow-acting iron supplement. Slow-Fe is no longer available at Wal-Mart or Fry's pharmacies in Yuma, Arizona.

I purchased and received my 30-tablet pack of Slow Fe in AUGUST 2011. When I opened it, I noticed the tablets were white instead of the maroon color that is the color of the Slow Fe tablets I most recently purchased from my local drugstore. I thought I had mistakenly purchased the wrong item and as I was examining the packaging to confirm whether I did, I noticed that the expiration date was SEPTEMBER 2011. I didn't want to deal with the hassle and time delay of trying to return or exchange it, so I kept it. I should have read the other customer review warning to check the expiration date. I also should have clued-in to the seller name "Liquidation" something or other. Just beware that the expiration date on the product you receive may be approaching MUCH sooner than you want or expect. I almost gave it ONE star, but I have used Slow Fe previously and the product as I have used & received it from my local drugstores is fine (so I gave it two stars). REVIEW UPDATE: After I submitted a comment on this issue to the seller (via Amazon.com's "Leave Seller Feedback") and wrote this review, the seller emailed me and apologized for the inconvenience and refunded my purchase price on the product.

I am surprised that the rating on this product isn't higher. FIRST, I would buy this at Target or Walmart or your local drug store, it is much cheaper. I really wish people would stop reviewing a "product" because of how is shipped, customer service, etc. SLOW FE is a GREAT product, I just would not buy anything that "expires" online.

As for the product - I have a sensitive stomach, this product did not bother me at all. I do not like to take pills, especially big ones... these pills are small. No smell, odor or taste, you can't ask for anything better from a supplement. I take two a day with no side effects.

I received the item in October of 2011 to find that the pills expired in September 2011.
Also, as previous reviewer mentioned, the pill was white-colored unlike the ones that I purchased from a local store.
I threw them away.

Awful, awful. I was waiting for these vitamins to come in for at least two weeks but when I opened the box I was shoked. The box itself was dirty and dusty. Expiration date was on 2011 and we are in 2013. I am sending the item back, then should be lucky I am not suing them for sending me expired item.
