I was diagnosis with an iron def. Anemia 4 weeks ago (cause not yet known) and had 1 dose of infed, iv. But am still tired.How long to take effect?

Not yet.: In my experience it may take up to 4 weeks for intravenous iron to have an effect on the hemoglobin. However, this will not change your tiredness as it is associated with both low hemoglobin and the absence of iron. You need to replace the iron until the reserves are full otherwise the anemia and your symptoms will persist. If this has been done look for other causes of the fatigue. ...Read more

6 weeks to 3 mos: You took an iron preparation. If you are iron deficient and take iron, and it's going to work, there should be obvious improvement by 3-4 weeks, but will take 3 months to get fully to normal. If you are losing blood, it may take longer. Too much blood loss or absorption problems and it won't work. Taking it only 5 days is not long enough. ...Read more
