Re: Ferrous Sulfate dosage
For my anemia, my doctor prescribed 300mg of ferrous sulfate three times a day. Although yours is higher in dose, depending on how low your levels are this may be appropriate. I would say it sounds about right, especially if you double checked with the nurse who confirmed it. Stick with the prescription that the doctor gave to you, and it will raise your levels just fine.
Do make sure to keep an eye on how you're feeling as you keep taking them though, especially in high doses-- and go back to your doctor for blood checkups to make sure it is not too high. If you start to feel better, and then following start to feel worse (sluggish, exhausted, weak) get to a doctor ASAP.
Best of luck!,
