The recommended dose depends on what you are taking the iron for.
Do you want to treat iron-deficiency anaemia or do you want to prevent it?

The dose for treatment is 200mg 2 to 3 times a day.
The dose for prevention is 200mg once a day.

(A Ferrous sulphate 200mg tablet contains 65mg elemental iron)
