Brief Answer:
Complete blood count, multivitamin is safe.

Detailed Answer:
Hi there, I welcome you to HCM virtual clinic. I have understood your concern and I will suggest you the best possible treatment options.

Your treating gynecologist has rightly suggested Iron, Calcium and multi vitamin and multi mineral supplements.

I would like to know about your recent blood reports about hemoglobin and complete blood count if possible.

Along with the above mentioned supplements, I will suggest you to opt for a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen.

You can continue with the multivitamin syrup. But we need to confirm about refined sugar content of the syrup.

Once I know about your reports, I will be in a better position to suggest you the dosages and timings of the supplements tablets.

I hope this answer helps you.
Please feel free to communicate with me again.
Thanks.
