Autrin

My son had a gastric bypass (Roux and Y) two years ago. Since then he has been drinking Autrin capsules (one every night). The content of the capsules are:

Vitamin B12 (15 micro gram)
Intrinsic Factor Concentrate 1.5 N.F. units
Ferrous Fumarate (350 milligram)
Ascorbic acid (150 milligram)
Folic acid (2 milligram).

Recently he has developed a reaction against the Autrin. He gets severe stomach cramps and diarrhea once the has taken the Autrin. Is there something else (with similar contents) that we can replace the Autrin with?

I am not aware of a similiar product and I therefore, suggest that he consults his pharmacist for an alternative.
