No I don't think fluids will help anemia. They will help chronic dehydration however. If you think about, fluids would only dilute any nutrients that are in your blood stream. However, dehydration can also cause dizzyness and weakness. Why do you think you have anemia, as opposed to being de-conditioned? Do you exercise regularly?
Also i see you are on several medications that could be contributing to these symptoms-- especially prednisone. Bottom line, since you are experiencing these symptoms you need to take extra care. Climb your stairs more slowly, take a breather if you need to. Ensure you have a hand free to hold on to the railing etc. And, of course, mention these symptoms to your doc.
