I take Feramax 150 for anemia, once a day, first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, with orange juice, to maximize absorption. My doctor has now recommended doubling the dose. Should I take both pills together, or the second at night when my stomach would not be empty?

I too take Feramax twice a day.
My doctor told me to take the first dose before breakfast & the second dose 2 to 3 hours before my lunch or dinner.
The reason why you take it before eating is for maximum absorption.
It doesn't matter if you take it with juice or water. Don't take it with coffee though.
