      Thanks,

      Amanda.

    I've been on 325 mg of Ferrous Sulfate. It will not bring my levels up. My symptoms are dizziness, insomnia, fast heart rate when I climb stairs, weakness, hair loss, and constantly cold.

      Hi,

      Thanks for your comment.  I am on the same stuff but a lower doesage of just one tablet a day.  I am tired alot and do get cold easily.  However, yours sounds more serious than mine, I hope that you get it sorted and start to feel better soon.

      Amanda.

    Hi, thank you for starting this thread. I've read that vitamin C in foods or supplements can help increase iron absorption. Possibly also beta-carotene in orange vegetables like carrots and some red and green vegetables, too. And maybe even something about combining onions and garlic with other foods may help increase iron absorption.
