Does Suboxone Cause Permanent Brain Damage
Not permanent: Brain damage is not the word I would use. Opiate addiction in general can cause long lasting changes to the brain. Suboxone is a type of opiate and completely stopping it can be difficult without other forms of support. It takes time, "months" for the brain to recover. Things such as stress or "triggers" even months to years down the road could cause cravings, possible relapse, meetings help! ...Read more

Can iron anemia cause permanent brain damage? Iron:15, rbc#-7.54. Memory bad, not subconsiously making associations, but have to do it actively
The numbers you provided not meaningful. It is unlikely that your RBC was 7.54, may be it was hemoglobin. Even if you hemoglobin was down to 7.5, it would not cause any permanent damage to the brain or any other organ. I trust you are seeing doctor.

Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
