[QUOTE=Audrey-B;3422757] You said that you have recently come off antidepressants, some people have been known to put on a lot of weight taking those. If you had a high amount of stress in your life and you needed antidepressants then that could be what caused your iron levels to go down. [/QUOTE]

Hi there,

Yes, I gained about 60 lb on them. I have lost 35 lb of those, trying to get the rest off.

I have been sooo tired for sooo long, but that was due to ADs (antidepressants), so the feeling I have now of not being AD-tired is more than I could ever hope for. Maybe that's why I don't notice any low-iron symptoms -- because I am so grateful to be off ADs and not having THEIR side effects!

I was actually trying to do a search on ADs having anything to do with iron deficiency. Didn't really find anything.

Anyways, thanks for all your info. I am just waiting to hear back from my naturopath about taking an iron supplement. I think it's probably necessary. I would love to have some hair regrowth!
