1busyteacher; I never take my iron without a stool softner! I have my iron in my pill separator and each iron pill (I have to take 3/day) is accompanied by a stool softener! I've also been eating a healthy salad with mixed greens and purple lettuces with either chicken, steak or salmon on top every day for lunch! I swallow my iron pills with grape juice (vitamin C), and stay away from any dairy for 3 hrs after taking the iron so that it can properly absorb.

My Ferritin level went from a 3 to a 10 in only 10 days on the iron (and a prenatal vitamin every day)! My hemoglobin levels are really low too though, that was a 6.9 and rose to an 8.4 in that 10 day period on the iron & a prenatal vitamin! I know their still low but I'm so excited that they rose so much in a short period of time.

I sound like an infomercial ... sorry!
