I have anemia and control it by taking iron pills at night.  DO NOT TAKE IT WITH YOUR THYROID MEDICATION.  I take a multivitamin and an iron pill at night.  I take thyroid med in the morning before breakfast.  There needs to be at least four hours in between or the vitamins and iron will block thryoid absorption.

I hope your fatigue ends soon--I've had it--I sympathize.  Hope you feel better soon.

* I take vitamins and iron at night because they make me sick to my stomach if I take them and stay awake.

You might have your adrenals checked.  Adrenal fatigue has the same symptoms as hypo and can cause fatigue.  Have your doctor do a full panel blood test including metabolic panel, DHEA, cortisol, B12 and Vit D.
