Treatment with Generess Fe should be stopped if you have a blood clot, and at least 4 weeks before and through 2 weeks after major surgery. You should not take Generess Fe any earlier than 4 weeks after having a baby or if you are breastfeeding. If you experience yellowing of the skin or eyes due to problems with your liver, you should stop taking Generess Fe. If you are pre-diabetic or diabetic, your doctor should monitor you while using Generess Fe and should evaluate you if you have any significant change in headaches or irregular menstrual bleeding.
Generess Fe increases the risk of serious conditions including blood clots, stroke, and heart attack. These can be life-threatening or lead to permanent disability.
