I'm anemic as well. I have to take iron pills everyday.they smell weird but I guess its all for the best. Also they kinda mess with your stomach so be prepared for that. Although every pregnancy is different so maybe it won't affect you!
But i forgot she told to take them befoe or after a meal and they wont pik up the phone at her office
It should say it on the bottle. I take mine right after eating at night because I take my prenatal in the morning and she said to take them at opposite times of day
