I took the last Iron tablet i had this morning and had put in a prescription request on Monday for some more. I also had a blood test on Monday to check my Ferritin, B12, Folate & Vit D Levels.
My Iron levels have been up and down all year and in June they were normal but only just in range so i started taking them even though my doctor said i didn't need it. I have now run out and feel i still need them but there insisting my levels are normal and i don't need to take any now and won't issue me a prescription. Is there anything I can do? I still have problems with sleeping, Fatigue and tiredness with a believe is Adrenal Insufficiency but they won't test for that either and i'm still running on fumes. The tablets made me feel better the first couple of days after i started taking them but now i'm back to "normal"
Any advice needed!
Also, how long after an Iron tablet can you drink alcohol? I'm going out after work tonight and i was planning on just having a fizzy drink but seen as i don't have any tablets now, i wanted to know when it was ok to drink alchohol again? it will be roughly 14 hours from when i took my last one to when i get there if that helps
