The recommendation for iron deficiency anemia is 50-100mg of elemental iron 3 times a day so it sounds like what you are taking is right at the lower end. I'm assuming that the 65 mg pills are the amount of elemental iron and not the iron salts. I looked on the Floradix website and their amount of elemental iron in one dose is 10mg. I take two 300mg pills of Ferrous fumarate a day which is equivalent to about 200mg of elemental iron.

Good luck. I can't imagine how stressful this must be for you.

Did they tell you what your hemoglobin is?
