Does taking over-the-counter iron pills has the same results as taking prescribed ferrous sulfate?

I've been taking Ferrous Sulfate Can I switch it to Ferrous Fumarate? Pharmacist told me it alright to take Fumarate as it almost same.
I was prescribed 325 mg ferrous sulfate..my ferritin was at a 12 yet all other numbers were within normal range. Is this too much iron?
CBC was ok. Day later drew a "full iron panel" (what's that & why check?) & said my iron levels were very low & put me on ferrous sulfate 325 mg.

However, some cases may still show numbers in the normal range, but tending towards a pattern consistent with iron deficiency. If the iron, iron binding and serum ferritin (panel) all point to deficiency then treatment is good. But should also ask why iron is low. ...Read more
