I am super tired all the time and fall asleep during the day. I was recently diagnosed with anemia, ( I am also on an antidepressant which is also contributing to my sleepiness) how long after taking iron supplies did you start feeling more energetic?

      It took me three weeks to feel a difference. It’s different for everyone tho. I thought I’d get better in two weeks but I was still feeling very ill and really really tired no matter how early I slept.

      2-6 months depending what caused u to become anemic and your ferritin, iron and hemoglobin levels.

      It takes a couple of weeks for the iron supplements to start improving anything if you can tolerate the GI stuff.
