Hi sir, I'm just going over details about iron tablets. I heard it might cause side effects to liver or brain. So what amount of elemental iron is good. I see some articles stating 10-20mg/kg is fine. Beyond that is toxic and beyond 50 is acute toxic maybe fatal . But in some other articles it says iron isn't toxic. Once my friend consumed 30tabs of Herfem tab(40mg/kg) but had vomiting included with some of melted tabs. Nothing happened to him. Is that he had lot of resistance or is that a myth that iron tabs are toxic. Could you please explain
