First of all, I am sorry to hear that your son has Crohn's at such a young age. I was diagnosed with mine a year ago (49 years) and it's been an on going struggle. The iron seems to be a high dose but hopefully, once his iron level is up, he will be able to maintain it. I have never heard of Ferrous sulfate and Dried Ferrous, is that an herbal medicine or something that your doctor prescribed as well. your doctor prescribed this to him, I am surprised that he didn't give you a dosage to follow.
Does your son have a Gastroenterologist? I am actually going to see a new doctor today, my regular doctor is out until June due to a hip replacement and since I have been having problems and I don't want to get into an emergency situation. Just an FYI... One thing I did find out as I was in the ER yesterday, people with Crohn's are at a higher risk of developing kidney stones, so hopefully he will be okay in that area.
I know this did not answer your question, I just wanted to email you back.
