I found out last week my iron level is at 14 (should be 40 - 155).
My GP prescribed FERROUS SULFATE, a prescription iron medication to be taken twice a day for a month and then get iron levels retested.
A week later, I FINALLY hear from my GI. He suggested I take Iron supplements (that I'd get in the vitamin isle, I guess?) 3 times a day for 6 months.
I know I've seen it mentioned on here that many of you have iron infusions...but I'm wondering if any of you have take prescription Iron before or just regular 'ol, over-the-counter Iron supplements.
What do YOU take for LOW IRON?
