Dizziness on day 4. Headache started that night and hasn't let up (day 8). Anyone else with headaches? I am a migraine patient but thisnisn't my "normal" headache.

Both the dizziness and the headache are listed side effects of the feraheme. You could try and tough it out for a few more days and see if your body adjusts to the medication or you could call your doctor's office and let them know what's going on. There are other medications for iron deficiency that you might be able to tolerate better. Personally, I'd call the dr and tell him what's going on. You shouldn't have to suffer from a headache for that long if there's another comparable medication you could be taking instead.
Just my thoughts. I do hope you get relief one way or another soon.
