| | How much Iron is safe at one time?
I have been taking one Feosol tablet (65 mg.) once a day for three months. I am hypothyroid now after thyroid surgery to remove a toxic nodule last month. I also have fibroids and have had heavy bleeding that coincided with my hyperthyroid state; it's slowed down slightly, but I'm spotting every day now.
My iron level was 21 last summer and 32 as of the beginning of this year. My endo wants me to increase my iron intake to 3 pills a day. The challenge is to fit it in with my other pills. I take my thyroid hormon in the morning, Calcium/Magnesium in the aft. and Iron in the evening. I also take Singulair (pill) in the evening.
Is it safe to take 195 mg. of iron at one sitting? My endo said yes, but I'm not sure. I'm looking around for a liquid Feosol supplement but I have not found it. better absorption, probably.
Does anyone have any ideas here?
