Hi. I'm new here, and was diagnosed with mild anemia by my family gp back in March of 2006. My numbers were:

hemoglobin - 10.8
hematocrit - 33.2
MCV - 73.0
MCH - 23.8
platelets - 482
eosinophils - 1

I was recommended by the same doctor to take Iron supplements for 1 month. I took Solgar Gentle Iron 25mg, and it did help.

But now I think it has come back because I always feel tired (fatigue and loss of energy), shortness of breath when running or walking up a lot of stairs, occassional headaches, and difficulty concentrating.

Could this also cause mild depression and anxiety? If I take the 25mg Gentle Iron again, could it help, or should I take a higher dosage this time? Also, I bought the Gentle Iron back in 2006, but the bottle has no expiration date. Would they still work if I take them?
