Are dizziness and weakness side effects of iron pill?

Diagnosed recently with iron and B12 deficiency. Internal Med doctor prescribed over the counter Iron pills every other day. Over the past week I have increased high iron food intake along with iron pills. Unfortunately, I am feeling weak, dizziness, difficulty thinking, and just not feeling well. Any thoughts on next steps?

My father is experiencing a lot of the side effects of Amiodarone and is having a very difficult time tolerating the medication ... Is there anything he can do or take to lessen the severity of these side effects (e.g., difficulty breathing; trembling in the hands, arms and legs; dizziness; nausea; feeling weak and tired; and constipation)
