Re: Longtime anemia?

I have been taking the Feramax for 6 months. In the first three months, my iron levels rose from 15 to 18. In the second three months, they rose from 18 to 22. My doctor wants me to keep taking it until my levels are in the 30's, which at this rate will probably be another year! The negative side is the slow increase and the cost (it is almost $20 for a 30-day supply.) The positive side is that I get absolutely no gastric problems from this stuff. I have tried all kinds of iron supplements and stopped taking them because of severe constipation and stomach pains. But the Feramax causes me absolutely no problems. If you try the Floradix and don't like the results, maybe give the Feramax a try.
