Can it be beneficial for a young man to take a multivitamin with 18mg iron if he is worried about being tired often? Could the iron hurt him?

Potentially: Taking a multivitamin in general will not harm you. It is unlikely that you will have more energy from it though. In general I do not recommend taking additional iron for men. Women menstruate and lose iron every month, men in general do not lose iron unless they are bleeding. So in general I would not recommend taking iron supplements for men. ...Read more

MVI (multivitamin) + Fe: Taking a multivitamin and iron at the same time is fine. The acidity in vitamin c helps you absorb iron better so that is good to take too.

Depends how anemic: Or iron deficient you are? Also, if you are actually absorbing all the iron that you're taking?

Most multivitamins have the least amount (minimum) that won't interfere with absorption of other trace minerals or supplements. So, it's best to start with your doctor. ...Read more
