I was diagnosed with 2 types of anemia in January 2010 (iron deficiency and pernicious) I was at 10 for my ferritin level. I started taking two doses of iron a day (325 mcg 2x/day), along with 1000 mcg of B12. I felt great during April through mid-August, and in the past 2 weeks I've started going back to the old symptoms...but I'm keeping up the same regimen. I've actually upped my B12 to around 3000 mcg a day.

What's going on? I am still able to muster the strength to workout (which includes around an hour on an exercise bike 4 times a week and a 30 minute arms/legs weights workout 2 times a week), but it's not like the past few months where I had lots of energy. I could without a doubt fall asleep at work at the drop of a hat.

Has anyone else with anemia experienced this while taking doctor-ordered treatment measures? I feel like I could fall asleep at any moment, anywhere. And I have a feeling of drowsiness throughout the day. I am so sick of being tired all of the time!
