In brief: One with iron
A multiple vitamin a day with food and one that contains iron would be beneficial in a menstruating 15 year old provided there are not iron related illnesses in the patient or the family (hemochromatosis).
They are over the counter. Women lose iron through the menses. Megadose vitamins or unusual regimens of vitamins are not necessary. Keep it simple! generic is fine!

In brief: Vitamins for teen
If she eats a good diet with adequate calcium foods, vegetables, fruits, and protein , one may suggest a teen or adult multivitamin with iron.
May want to consider vit d supplements.
