Doctors have told me I have iron deficiency. They gave me pills to take and i started to feel better. But now i'm getting more tired. Why is that?

Fatigue is broad: Fatigue is a common complaint with a broad range of possibilities. Requires a detailed history to get to the bottom of it. I would start with reassessing what you already have (iron deficiency) before considering alternative diagnosis. Feel better !
