Re: Best to take two iron pills at once, or one in AM and one in PM?

I would take one twice a day for 2 reasons. One is that iron upsets the stomach of some people and I think you'll get more complete absorption if it is split up. Calcium taken at the same time as iron will reduce the iron absorption, so separate the two if you take calcium by one hour. Taking the iron with food will reduce chance of upset stomach.
