Depend: Will depend on the severity of anemia/ how low your hemoglobin is- and whether you have any related symptoms ; the cause of the anemia ( bleeding, iron/vit deficiency , destruction of the red blood cells, decrease production of red blood cells etc ) and also depend on your willingness to get treatment. Please discuss with your doctor.
