Low in ferritin (10.8 ng/ml), how can I safely raise my iron levels using supplements? Which form of iron should I use and what dosage?

In brief: Ferrous sulfate

Oral iron supplements are usually available in drug stores and are usually adequate.
Take the pill with meals. If you get constipated, take a fiber laxative like Metamucil.
