Well, I dont think low ferretin is an indicator of B12 deficiency, BUT, B12 supplements are generaly considered pretty safe, so if you want to try one for a few months and see what happens, there isnt much harm in that. The sublingual ones are best, range 2000 to 5000mcg per day are pretty typical doseages.

You can help boost the adsorbsion of your iron by taking a vitamin c tablet with each dose, this increases iron uptake by the body.

If your body isnt getting benifit from oral iron, maybe you need injectable iron? Somthing to discuss with your doctor. Given your concerns, i would ask to have your b12 levels tested as well, and make sure you tell your doc about any supplements you're taking.
