For those with anemia, how long did it take to feel some relief once you started iron pills? How often do you take them?

      Took iron and vit B12. It took my blood results more than 3 months to become sort of normal

      I take feosol 65/325. I ststred daily. Taken with high dose VitC. Take B12 @ night. That combo helped absorb the iron. Tested 2 months later, levels going up. Started to feel better then too. I now take iron every other day. My iron is in the low normal range. I'm about 6 mo ths in from the start & I was extremely low. Borderline e non existing iron (possibly needed transfusions).
