Hi, yes intervenous iron is a godsend. I have always been borderline anemic due to malabsorbtion. Doctor told me I needed iron but was unable to tolerate it by mouth. Finally after a hospital error of fluid overload by IV, my hemoglobin dropped so much, that I was given iron by IV. I tolerated it very well. I've heard that not everyone does due to allergies etc. My infusion took 3 hours. I have to go monthly for these. Does your iron levels go up each time? I still feel weak and I was told it will be 2-3 weeks before I feel a difference. For now, I am happy with the fact of toleration.
