Hi Ricky,thanks for query.It is difficult to give brand names as it varies widely with country.You need any iron preparation available.Make sure you take it for 3 months to complete the course.Take more of vegetables and fruits,green vegetables are better.Try to reduce weight also as it could be one of the reasons for tiredness.bye.
