I ditto the earlier posts about
the iron brand Slow-Fe. There are also a couple other brands that say "gentle on the system". When my hemo counts went down to 7.1 my hemotologist suggested taking the iron with food to help the tummy and take with orange juice or even better a multi-vitamin. She said vitamin C and folic acid taken with iron help the body absorb the iron. This did help bring my counts up even though I was still bleeding.
