Brief Answer: Iron Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome to healthcare magic. As of now she needs balanced diet. Along with that she can start on iron tablets one daily. Only after 2 months she can start calcium supplements. Hence she does not need any other medicine that an iron tablets. Please get anomaly scan done next week by a good scan centre.
