Anyways, I bought the livogen and wanted to know what's the right dosage as I forgot how I used to take it before. Like after or before meal and on breakfast , lunch or dinner. Looking forward for answers. Thank you.

Firstly try to improve your hemoglobin with diet which consists of eggs,jaggery,peanuts,lemonjuice,leafy greens. Avoid tea/coffee Take tablet livogen only if your hemoglobin is less than 10. After food ,for 4 weeks.once daily will be sufficient Please add tablet bplex forte after lunch to your daily intake list  of medicines. Since it is difficult to maintain the hemoglobin for women,because of menstrual cycles,proper intake (100 mg)of dietary iron per day is recommended.
