ferrous

 [fer´us]
containing iron in its plus-two oxidation state, Fe(II) (sometimes designated Fe2+).
ferrous fumarate an oral iron preparation used in the treatment of iron deficiency.
ferrous gluconate a hematinic that is less irritating to the gastrointestinal tract than other hematinics, and generally used as a substitute when ferrous sulfate cannot be tolerated.
ferrous sulfate the most widely used hematinic for the treatment of iron deficiency anemia. It is believed to be less irritating than equivalent amounts of ferric salts and is more effective.

All iron preparations should be administered after meals, never on an empty stomach. The patient should be warned that the drugs cause stools to turn dark green or black. Overdosage may cause severe systemic reactions.

fer·rous

(fer'ŭs),
Relating to iron, especially denoting a salt containing iron in its lowest valence state, Fe2+; many ferrous salts are used as hematinics and supplements.
[L. ferreus, made of iron]

ferrous

/fer·rous/ (fer´us) containing iron in its plus-two oxidation state, Fe(II) (sometimes designated Fe2+). Various salts are used in iron deficiency, including iron fumarate, iron gluconate, and iron sulfate.

ferrous

[fer′əs]
pertaining to a compound of iron in which the metal is divalent, such as ferrous ammonium sulfate. See also iron.

(fer'ŭs)
1. Relating to iron in its valence state, Fe2+.
2. A compound in which iron exists in its valence state of 2+.
[L. ferreus,made of iron]

ferrous

containing iron in its plus-two oxidation state, Fe(II) (sometimes designated Fe2+).

ferrous fumarate
the anhydrous salt of a combination of ferrous iron and fumaric acid; used as a hematinic.
ferrous gluconate
a hematinic that is less irritating to the gastrointestinal tract than other hematinics, and generally used as a substitute when ferrous sulfate cannot be tolerated.
ferrous selinite
is insoluble and soils rich in iron oxide tend to be nontoxic because of the formation of this compound.
ferrous sulfate
the most widely used hematinic for the treatment of iron-deficiency anemia. It is believed to be less irritating than equivalent amounts of ferric salts and is more effective.
