How is it that ferrous Sulphate has gone from £6 to £23.95 for a 100 tablets? Surely it cannot cost that much to produce. I have always just paid for them and when the girl behind the counter said they had gone up I was still prepared to pay but changed my mind when it had gone up 4 fold. So now I am forced to get a prescription, yes I do pay for prescriptions but it will work out so much cheaper. I don't know how the price hike can be justified.

Hi, I have just had a look on Amazon, and one can buy Ferrous Sulphate the price is £ 3.08 for 100 tablets. There would be the cost of postage, but even so that would be cheaper than the price quoted to you.
Do you think they made a mistake at the chemist? I would ask to speak to the chemist.
