I bought it by the bag!

That is horrible!!!!
They don't have meds for that kind of stuff. Obviously I've never had PICA.

Fixing the deficiency would work.

I found that my pica went away immediately after I gave birth, even though my anemia was worse (I bled a lot).

Have you tried Floradix liquid iron, it worked wonders after I ended up anemic after DD1's birth.

No, I don't even know what that is.

You can find it online and in health food stores. It's a bit pricey but totally worth it. It is absorbed much quicker and better than iron pills and without the adverse side effects.

Re: Who has pica?

I had it when I was 12 and was severely anemic with kidney disease but hadn't been diagnosed yet. Didn't know why I was suddenly sitting in the laundry room daily sniffing the Tide and wanting to eat it. I begged my mom to take me to the grocery store and let me walk down the laundry detergent aisle smelling them all.

OP, one thing I found that could sort of satisfy my cravings were baby carrots
