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]

(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]
