Abstract: Introduction: This study was conducted to determine the difference in change in reticulocyte count and hemoglobin after 28 days of daily and alternate iron therapy. Methodology: This hospital based randomized controlled trial was conducted for the study period of one year. Thirty patients in each arm were recruited. Their characteristics were reported at baseline and after 28 days of therapy. Analysis was done using Microsoft excel 2029. Results: There was significant improvement in both hemoglobin and reticulocyte count after iron therapy in both study arms from baseline (p value<0.05). although improvement in alternate regimen was higher in alternate therapy compared to daily therapy. Conclusion: Alternate iron therapy showed more improvement compared to daily iron therapy.
