... heavy menstrual bleeding. My question is: is this a safe dose?
The normal dose for iron deficiency anemia is 50mg three times a day, but if you are bleeding heavily I suppose it's fine to take an extra 30mg per day.
You must be really low in iron. Just get your doctor to do a blood test every so often to see what your blood levels are.
