You know snow having low ferritin can cause the same side effects? I feel and felt the same way, I just sucked it up and took the iron because honestly feeling the way I feel without it was so much worse.

Symptoms of low ferritin:

Minor aches
Pica
Fatigue
Weakness
Heart palpitations
Increased pulse
Loss of energy
Loss of libido
Confusion
Irritability
Headache
Hairloss
Loss of energy levels in the body
Confusion
Pale skin and eyes
Brittle nails
Cognitive problems
Excessive bruising
Pain in abdomen
Tingling and numbness of the fingers and toes.

The list goes on and on. Take a slower release might be easier but the lower your dose the less iron your getting, the longer this is going to take. Also you might want to give yourself/body a while to adjust to the iron sometimes a lot of the side effects from the iron go away as your body adjust. How long did you take that dose of iron?

I did feel worst before starting the Iron. I felt like I was sleeping my life away. The slower release Iron tablets that I have seen have more daily allowance than the one I am taking. I am taking 18mg, which is just 100% daily coverage. My doctor wanted me to take just that much or just Women's one a day with Iron. I have been taking it for a little more than a month now. My physical fatigue is slightly better but I still feel pretty lightheaded some days.
