it depends on what your doctor says. it could be one tablet, three tablets but it all depends on how many mg is in each tabletif you think you are anemic then go to your doctor and see what he says

The minimum iron blood count should be over 120, under that you could need a transfusion, my doctor gave me a B12 shot once a week for 3 weeks, put me on multivitamins and megafol 5mg, mine was 78 and he said I would have been dead within 2 weeks if I hadn't seen him but as for iron tablets he didnt give me anything else but what I have already said, you know when you are really bad when you are flat out getting out of bed, want to sleep all the time and for me I went to pick some roses from the garden and squatted down to cut them and fell over and couldnt get up again, it took me about 20 minutes, had blood running from me everywhere which didnt help, so if yours is really low, go to the hospital and get a transfusion or a platelet transfusion, luckily enough for me I fought it off by myself but have to eat red meat 3 times per week now, its expensive so thats difficult so just go with what the doctor tells you, goodluck!
