... pharmacy and they never heard of this happening as so i called hemo again nurse sounded concerned and then hemo doc said no it can't. I have a anxiety disorder and I know panic and anxiety and the first time I took myself off of this the anxiety went down to manageable as so I gave it a few days and tried again mind you I am at 13 ferritin and this time the anxiety blew up very badly and stress and irritable with depression. I just found this page and finally feel vindicated as it tells what it does to the nervous system but still have anxiety very badly anything anyone can add to figure this out??
