What's better than iron tablets? I'm fed up with being exhausted. I have them on prescription and just had another blood test but the results won't be in for another week.

Eating liver accompanied by vit c/orange juice! Otherwuse, If you are deficient you'll need high strength supplements for a few months taken with vit c.

Liquid iron is easier in terms of nausea and that nasty black poo you get with iron tabs. Spatone or similar.

Spatone is AMAZING and you should try that

Thanks, I've just ordered some.

I'm worried it'll give me horrific periods, but that's got to be better than this tiredness.
