DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION: Adults (persons over 12 years of age), One (1) capsule daily, between meals, or as prescribed by a physician. Do not exceed recommended dosage. Do not administer to children under the age of 12. TIME AND DURATION: The hematologic response to orally administered iron is indicated by reticulocytosis of 2% to 10% depending on the severity of the anemia, beginning five to ten days after initiation of therapy. A rise in hemoglobin value is observable at the end of the second week. When therapy is adequate, hemoglobin value increases 0.1 to 0.2 gm per 100 ml of blood a day and usually becomes normal in two months. However, to improve body iron stores, treatment may be continued from 3 to 12 months, after the hemoglobin has returned to normal. If no satisfactory response is noted after three weeks of therapy, consideration should be given to (1) whether dosage recommendations have been followed, (2) blood loss is occurring simultaneously, (3) whether there are complicating causes, such as infection, defects in absorption or utilization, (4) whether diagnosis or iron-deficiency was correct. WARNING: Do not administer to pediatric patients. Do not exceed recommended dosage. Keep this and all drugs out of reach of pediatric patients.
