Iron deficiency

My ferritin levels at 23 weeks were28mcg/l. I am prescribed feramax 150mg. Wondering if it’s too much iron? Would it cause any problems for the baby? Anyone suffering from iron deficiency and prescribed the high dose supplement?

Re: Iron deficiency

  • My ferritin levels were a 7!! They just told me to take over the counter 65 mg of iron everyday plus 3 times a week take it twice.
  • I am also iron deficient and am taking a prescribed iron supplement. It really constipates me. It will all be over soon, Right!? lol. Good luck mama

  • My levels were low and my doctor prescribed an iron infusion (like an IV drip), though the infusion clinic can't schedule me for a few more weeks!
