Hi there,
I would suggest you that you should get your hemoglobin level checked before starting any iron supplements. The standard dose of iron is 60 mg per day and is two times a day in anemia. It is entirely the doctor’s discretion about the dosage of iron and which form of iron should be given which is decided on the severity of your symptoms, your ability to tolerate iron supplements, the presence of other health problems or other types of drugs you have been taking. Iron tablets can cause stomach upset, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting in high doses. Consult your doctor before starting it. Do keep me posted.
Best luck and regards!
