    Much better than pills, in my opinion.

    No side effects and should give you fast improvement.

    Feel better.

    Re: iron injections

    I had a series of 5 injections this time last year. It did boost my levels, but i was warned that it gives a 'false' high. I found this to be true. I felt nothing until i got my 4th injection. I felt fantastic for about 2 months after finishing the injections, then i noticed that fantastic feeling began diminishing. After getting my ferretin retested i found i had only moved up a tiny bit and nowhere close to my target.

    I don't regret getting the injections as they likely did give me a bit of a boost rather than relying on iron supplements to give me a kickstart. After getting the injections i still had to go back onto the iron supplements as i wasn't easily absorbing iron.

    It's important that your doctor injects the iron correctly, if not it can leave a tattoo.
