Injectafer

Injectafer

Injectafer is an iron replacement product indicated for the treatment of iron deficiency anemia (IDA) in adult patients:
Who have intolerance to oral iron or have had unsatisfactory response to oral iron, or
Who have non-dialysis dependent chronic kidney disease.
Injectafer is a dextran-free iron replacement product that is administered directly into the vein.

It was designed to gradually release iron once inside the body, which may decrease the potential for some side effects and conveniently give you more iron in just 2 administrations.

Administration Information

Each Injectafer infusion takes about 30 minutes. After your infusion, your healthcare provider will monitor you for signs and symptoms of an allergic reaction—usually for about 30 minutes.

Injectafer is generally prescribed as two doses separated by at least 7 days.

Potential Side Effects

The most common side effects of Injectafer include nausea, high blood pressure, flushing, low levels of phosphorous in your blood, dizziness, vomiting, headache, an increase in certain liver enzymes, and pain or bruising at the injection site. Potentially long-lasting brown staining of skin near the injection site may occur if Injectafer leaks out of the vein. Excessive amounts of Injectafer may lead to a condition called iron overload, which is a buildup of iron and may be harmful.

For a full list of potential side effects, please see the Important Safety Information and Medication Guide on the Injectafer website.
