Don't worry about it in the least. Get follow-up to see that the hemoglobin comes back to normal though. ...Read more

It depends on which form of iron you use but authorities recommend 50-100 mg of elemental iron 3x/day to correct deficiencies. The best absorbed form is iron bis-glycinate but even for that form i advise 25 mg a day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
