Hemolytic anemia

Iron supplements are contraindicated in anemias that are not caused by iron-deficiency, such as hemolytic anemia. Decreased hemoglobin and weakness are related to iron-deficiency anemia. Iron supplements are given with erythropoietic drugs to aid in the production of red blood cells.
