ARe you deficient: ARe you deficient in iron? It takes about 6 weeks for oral iron to help. So sit tight. Could your symptoms be related to anything else ? If you are not properly diagnosed get the correct diagnosis of iron deficient anaemia if that is the case and take oral iron but be sure of the diagnosis. Hope this helps.
