The Correct option is A

The most appropriate form of oral iron therapy is one containing iron salts such as ferrous fumarate, ferrous sulfate, or ferrous gluconate. The recommended daily dose is between 150-200mg of elemental iron daily. No evidence suggests that one preparation is more effective for the treatment of iron deficiency.

Ferrous sulfate at 325 mg TID contains 195 mg of elemental iron. Absorption of iron is best when taken on an empty stomach. This regimen should increase hemoglobin 2 g/dL over the next three weeks.
