What is the proper dosage of iron supplements for a post-menopausal woman?

I'd like to begin an iron supplement, and I am 54 years old. How much of the mineral should I take each day?

I would reccomend that you take one iron supplement everyday. Usually you can find a multi vitamin that has iron in it.

Postmenopausal iron supplementation dosage should be no more than 1 milligram per day. Iron can accumulate in the body to toxic levels, but small amounts are lost daily. It is a good idea to monitor your iron levels when you have any lab work done.
