Is 325 mg equal to 27 mg iron? Physician prescribes 325 mg but bottle and various seller web sites state only 27 mg iron? not amount of ferrous gluconate.
Fergon is a standardized pill that the doc can count on it having 325mg. Quite a few years ago now, they standardized the amount in iron tabs, because it was extremely confusing, as you can see. The pills a dr prescribes is sold as 325mg. Have you asked the pharmacist? He should be able to lead you to a supplement that is what your doctor wants.
Maybe this link will help.
Each iron salt (gluconate, sulfate, fumarate etc) contains a different amount of elemental iron depending on the salt used and its strength. You'll need to read the label to find out exactly how much elemental iron you are taking.
Ferrous gluconate 325 mg contains 37.5mg of elemental iron.
