Have Pediatric Questions? Ask a Pediatrician.
I'll do my best to answer your question. If you're available for chat, let's get started.
Hi! Flintstone's chewable vitamins with iron contain iron and should be available in your local drug store on on line. However, in most cases iron supplementation is not necessary in a menstruating teenager unless she is having unusually heavy bleeding. You can have her physician do a simple blood test to see if she is in danger of becoming anemic if you are concerned. That said, there's little downside to your providing her a multivitamin with iron. Just watch for constipation as that can be a problem when taking medications containing iron.
If your daughter is soaking a maxi pad every 1-2 hours or more her bleeding might be greater than expected and you should discuss that with her physician. Most teens will need to change a pad every 3 hours or so on days with heavy flow (usually the first 2-3 days) with the flow tapering after another few days.
Please let me know if you have any further questions and feel free to request me in the future if you're pleased with my answer.
Have a great night!
