In brief: Depends

There are different formulations of iron that are available.
The dosing and frequency depends on the amount of elemental iron that is available in these formulations. Some formulations are easier on the stomach than others. Sometimes intravenous iron may be indicated to replenish iron stores. Please ask your doctor on the best way to investigate and treat your iron defeciency.
