Also I recently started taking NatureMade vitamins and supplements. I take their multivitamin, B12, calcium/magnesium and fish oil and they are all clearly labeled gluten free. They're inexpensive- I get them at CVS. But Solgar is really high quality too. Beverly (PS kaiti really is the bomb!)

I didn't have trouble with iron tablets and sleep except for when they would make my stomach hurt, which would in turn wake me up. Sometimes I would take a benedryl with them to help me sleep, which worked. I only did that though cause I knew I was on the pills short term. Most of my sleeping problems were due to the anemia before the iron started working - some cramping, restless legs, temperature changes during the night. At the same time, when I woke in the morning, I felt like I had a huge weight on me and didn't want to get up. Iron pills can also make you have stomach or esophogus convulsions. They bothered me so much during the day that I started taking them at night on an empty stomach hoping I would sleep through the side effects. I was on Ferrex 150.

Thank you for sharing your sleeping remedies..it helped! I recently started having an increased inability to fall asleep once I went to bed. I thought that perhaps taking my calcium/magnesium supplement before bed would help to at least relax me enough to fall asleep sooner.

Tomorrow I will take my supplement before bed.
