In brief: Depends on the cause

Treatment of anemia will depend on the cause of anemia.
Iron tablets or iron infusion can help if your iron in the body is low-however will not help if the anemia is caused by something else. So, see your md and have further evaluation of the cause of anemia and go from there. If your iron is truly low-you can also increase intake of foods that are rich in iron - spinach etc - www.Ironrichfood.Org.
