... Plus? I am wondering if lower dosages may lessen the stomach upset associated with oral iron supplements.
I have researched your question and I can not find any information confirming the actual amount of iron in each tablet. Because of the name I am guessing 150mg but to be sure double check with a pharmacist. If you have the original box / container check on there as it must be written somewhere.
The recommended daily oral dose of iron for iron deficient anemia is between 100mg to 200mg so 150mg does fit.
In regard to stomach upset a lower dose may indeed help and is worth trying. As is taking the iron supplement after a meal (even though iron is absorbed better on an empty stomach)
I hope this helps.
I agree to ask a pharmacist. I am taking neferix and I think it is 150mg as well, and I was told it was the best due to being absorbed better but I can't tell a difference so I haven't been taking like I need to lately. I was also told that taking vitamin C along with the iron supplement will help with absorption. I hope your GI issues get better.
