Hi Sally!
and Welcome to the anemia board!

I was diagnosed with IDA with a Ferritin level of 5 last summer. After lots of testing to rule out any internal bleeding I was sent to a hematologist who put me on Poly Iron 150 mg tabs two times a day for a total of 300 mg a day. I took them for 5 months because in April my Ferritin rose to 40 and the Doc said stop the supplements and come back to see me in 6 months. My Iron improved from 25 to 55 (normal range is 35- 170) and my %Saturation (20 - 55) went from 5 to 16 (this is up but still not normal).

Anyway to answer your question I am post menopausal so I don't have periods anymore and I was on 300 mg of iron. I have read of other gals here who also took 300 mg so I don't think it is unreasonable for you to double the dose and take 2 per day - but not at the same time.

all the best!
