Ferritin is a protein that stores iron. You cannot "take" ferritin. It is an indicator of your iron stores. Too much ferritin means you have too much iron, too little ferritin protein then there is too little iron.

Since you had gastric bypass you probably cannot absorb iron anymore. No amount of iron supplementation that you swallow is going to fix that. You need to talk with a doctor that specializes in gastric bypass surgery and the resulting anemia. Most likely you will need to have iron infusions to keep your iron up.
