Calculate to get the maximum daily MLs:

1.5ml X 2 (every 12 hours) = 3ml daily

Quantity = 50ML

Divide 50ML by 3Ml and you get 16.

50ML of Ferrous Sulfate 75mg/ml drops will last 16 days at a 1.5ml every 12 hours dosing.

About Ferrous Sulfate

Ferrous Sulfate is used for Iron Deficiency Anemia, which is a condition where a person has a low count of red blood cells due to low iron in the body.

Not having enough iron can leave you short of breath and tired because, without enough iron, the body can't produce as much hemoglobin.

Hemoglobin is a substance in blood cells which allows them to carry oxygen.

Therefore, without enough oxygen, a person won't have as much energy and will feel tired, and may have trouble catching their breath.
