The first thing that I would do is get a hard copy of your lab results for your own reference. You can post your labs if you like and people here can take a look for you. I would want to know if the Hgb was on the low end range because it makes a GREAT difference in absorbing into the ferritn and your over all health. Optimal Hgb for females would be 14 Hgb and 12 is lowest end range or 11.5. You also have to be at a normal Hgb for a period of time to roll over into the ferritin. At least that was my experience. I'm not sure how much elemental iron there is in your supplement. There are also many different types of iron to try that don't cause black spots. Taking iron for me didn't make a difference in my symptoms until my Hgb was up to a good number and my ferritin was raised. Ferritin could very well be your problem and cause depression or anxiety. For me it was anxiety. My doctor also told me I was depressed, but it was absolutely NOT true. If you already suffer from depression/or not, a low ferritin could possibly make things worse for you. I would start with a GI doc to rule out any blood loss and absorption or disease. FLFLOWERGIRL:)
