Hello I remember that my doctor told me that we shouldn't take iron and calcium tablets together. She said me to have iron tablet in the morning after breakfast calcium after lunch and omega3 after dinner. I'm sure that both iron and calcium shouldn't be take at a time. Try this. Hope it helps you

You should keep a gap of atleast 2 hours between iron and calcium tablets. It is also adviced not to taking calcium food items like milk etc with iron as this results in iron not being absorbed by the body. Try and take vitamin C with iron like oranges etc as it helps in iron absorption. If you still have vomiting you should consult your doc as the medicines may not be suiting you and the doc may want to change the same.
