    Being male, you could be making a very large mistake by taking iron. Before you even consider it, you should go to your doctor for blood work and not take any chances.

    That's why I think men should take a multi-vitamin made for men. They usually don't have any, or very little, iron in them.

    I agree with Jodi. Its almost impossible to decide on a diagnosis from one sign and symptom, like dizziness. Go to the doc and ask for a CBC (complete blood count), iron deficiency manifests itself in anemia, which can be corrected with diet.

    do you drink a lot of beverages with aspartame in it?
