For oral route only: It can be diluted with sweetened or normal water, or in any other soft-drink (non-alcoholic).
Curative treatment: Adults: 2 to 4 ampoules per day.
Children (Over 1 month and above): 5 to 10 mg of metal iron per kg per day.
Preventive treatment: Pregnant women: 1 ampoule per day during last two quarters of pregnancy (or from the 4th month).
Duration of treatment: It should be sufficient to correct anaemia and to restore last reserves which, in the adult are 600 mg for the woman and 1200 for the man.
Anaemia due to iron deficiency: 3 to 6 months depending on the depletion of reserves, but may be prolonged further if the cause of anaemia is not controlled. The control of efficacy is only useful after at least 3 months of treatment: it should consist of determining the correction of anaemia (Hb, MCV) and the reservation of iron stores (seric iron and transferrin saturation.)
