I have been taking the Spatone liquid iron since mid-November. I have to say that I *love* it. I get no side effects from it at all. The other supplements were killing me so bad that I could not take them more than 3 days.

How well does it work? That's a good question.

I became anemic back in July and stayed anemic for a bit. I didn't start the Spatone until November when I figured the anemia was here to stay. At that point, I had never had a ferritin test done, so I don't know what my ferritin level was while I was anemic.

Anyway, after 6 weeks on Spatone, my anemia totally reversed itself and my Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, and RBCs are looking REAL good. I am in the normal range (and not just by a tiny bit). BUT, my ferritin, at the same time was only a 5!!

According to my doctor, the ferritin declines slowly over a period of years and when it finally hits rock bottom, the anemia starts. So, when you start iron supplementation, the first thing to change is the anemia. Then the ferritin slowly starts to rise.

I have been taking one pack of Spatone per day, but the package insert says that you can take 2 packs a day if you want faster results. I've decided just to take it easy and do a pack a day.

I can't say enough good things about how easy it is and the company ships FEDEX with no shipping charges. It comes about 2 days after I order it, right on my doorstep!
