My doctor wants me to take Fergon for iron, because my blood levels is slow low that if after next month, it doesn't increase, i will need a transfussion. I do have problems with my periods being too long, which we are sure is the problem to my blood being too low.

question, i have heard different things, but my doctor wants me to take 2 tablets a day. that would give me i believe about 54MG of iron a day, about 300% more than the normal daily allowance.

is this safe or would i get sick from taking too much iron? i have been taking 1 pill a day and also trying to eat more foods with iron, because i have heard of people getting sick from too much iron. i was just wondering if 54mg from a pill or 300% more from a pill is too much or am i that low i need this much?

i know her scale showed blood counts should be about 11-16 and i was at an 8.6. if it gets in the 7 range, this is when i need the transfussion.

anyways, thanks for helping me understand this better! i am 29 years old, but sometimes, i feel like a kid when it comes to getting sick. i admit, i can be a whimp!
