yes, these are common side effects of iron infusions to cause upset stomach, nausea, dizziness, headaches.

keep using the nausea medications and panadol.

you can also try use stomach acid neutralizers like maalox or mylanta or tums or rollaids to help decrease stomach acid to see if this helps your symptoms

you should eat a bland diet of rice, chicken broth, toast, crackers, bananas and tea and see if your symptoms get better

you will get better with time.
