Persistent Side Effects from Injectafer

My first dose was given four days ago and I am still feeling nauseous, muscle pain and cold sweats. Realizing that we're all different, I'm hoping someone's experience with Injectafer is better than mine and can offer some hope that things get better. Compared to my Infed and Venofer infusions this is the worst I've felt afterwards. This is my first try at a forum. Thank you for any advice. ## Those can be normal side effects of such infusions and, unfortunately, they don't always improve or go away. Some people end up with such symptoms for life. You may also experience dizziness, flushing and darkening of the skin at the administration site. Has it improve any, yet? Why were you switched off of the others, were they no longer working? ## I had mine on Friday (it...

Propan with iron multivitamins for gaining weight

Is propan w/ iron really effective? I'm 23 years old and im so thin... ## Pwede po ba ako ominom ng propan with iron..kasi po lge po aqu na hihilo anemic po kac ako. I'm 30 years old... ## Nutritional supplements can help with weight gain, but only if your weight loss is due to a lack in one of the vital nutrients it contains. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, due to its potency. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi po, pwede po bah ako maka take nang propan kahit umiinum ako nang B complex sa gabi ## Effective po siya. Basta sabayan mo ng exercise ;) ## Magkano ang profan uminom ako ng ttlong beses pero parang sala pong ipikto. ## Haii po. Ko po kasi tumaba hindi ko po kasi alam kung effective po ba tong propan?

Back and joint pain after Injectafer

I have chronic anemia from Crohn's disease and we decided to do Venofer this year to address my anemia. I did like 10, 200mg infusions and my HGB was declining the whole time. Long story short, I had to go on Prednisone, switch GI docs, go on Remicade and Cellcept to get disease under control. Then we started with the Injectafer. The first two infusions went fine. I started feeling much better. After a couple of months my iron had dipped again below range and we decided to do another 2 Injectafer infusions. The infusions themselves went fine. It was around then that my body started hurting all over. My neck, back, elbows, knees, feet, etc. My GI doc thought I had developed antibodies to the Remicade so we tested for that and I have no antibodies. Now I suspect the Injectafer is the ...

Injectafer & Shortness of Breath?

I had my first of 2 Injectafer infusions today. It’s only been about 12 hrs and so far the only problem I have is shortness of breath. Has anyone else experienced this? I also have bad anxiety, which can also cause shortness of breath. Don’t know if I should ride this out or go to the ER. My anti-anxiety drug (Loraxepam) doesn’t seem to be helping. Would appreciate any input. Thank you

Venofer long term side effects

For the last 2 1/2 years, I've been receiving venofer infusions (series of 10 every other day) approximately every 3 months due to extreme iron deficiency anemia with no cause identified. I finished a round of 11 infusions 12 days ago, when my ferritin counts weren't that low at 25, nor was my hemoglobin at 10.0. I'm a teacher and my hemotologist said she wanted to build me up over the summer. Three days ago, I started having very black stools, nausea, weakness and fatigue, and total loss of appetite. Is this iron overload or is there something else going on? Has anyone experienced this? I can't find any information about the long term effects of using venofer. ## I was severley anemic too and was hospitalized, Instead of giving me infusions, they gave me blood transfusi...

What Medicen To Abort 25 Week Pregnancy

i need to abort because we have very little income, and no insurance. ## Unfortunately, 25 weeks is over 6 months along and there are no medications that are considered safe to use past the third month of pregnancy. In this case, you will have to see a doctor and, in most cases, undergo a surgical abortion procedure. Are there any other questions or comments? ## I am 25+ weeks pregnant and dont want this child now. i thought i am anemic that is why not getting periods. but the scan report shows i am pregnant. i want to get rid of this child anyhow.

injectafer face rash

I completed two sessions of injectafer infusion about a month ago. A few days ago out of the blue, my face and throat broke out in a rash which lasted about 3 days. I never develop rashes so this was very unusual and can't be attributed to different soap, lotion, etc. I notice on the handout they gave me at the time of infusion that it's a possible side effect, but wondering if it could occur a month later. Anyone else experience this? ## It is possible, according to NIH studies, some people experience joint and muscle pain from these infusions that can linger for the rest of their lives. While it may seem that you just need an iron supplement to brings your back up to normal levels, doing so is not always as simple as it seems. How are you doing, now? Has there been any change?...

Skipped all 4 brown pills still no period

I have been taking minastrin foe 6 months now. I always have a normal period while on the brown pills. This month I haven't had anything. I was intimate on the last day of what would of been a brown, I don't take brown since I was told that are inactive. I am on day 3 of white pills on a new pack and still no period. Could I be pregnant? ## The brown tablets contain a small amount of iron, but yes, you are correct, otherwise they are just placebo tablets. Some women tend to bleed heavily and risk becoming anemic, taking them can help prevent that, though the NIH warns that they do not contain enough iron to treat existing anemia. And it can be normal to skip your period, sometimes, while taking oral contraceptives, according to the FDA. Some women have even stopped menstruating ...

Ferinject Iron Infusion

I had my first Ferinject IV iron infusion a month ago. Had an allergic reaction prior to flushing and had to have antihistamines. It also brought on a hemorrhagic period the next day which lasted heavy for three days. I'm one month on and just started another heavy clotting period. Is this a side effect? ## I have just had a super heavy period, 1 week after a ferinject. The period was on time, but so heavy! ## Many medications can affect your menstrual period, according to NIH studies. This infusion may also cause nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and joint/muscle aches. Are you on any other medications?

Venofer Does well for Me

I have a friend who had Injectofee along with B12 shots. She had gastric bypass 15 yrs ago. She had not one problem with the injectafer. I had Venofer 2 yrs ago and did super. Having another series of Venofer... 3rd one next week. I space them 10 days apart. I don't want a load of anything shoved in me every other day. Too much for body to deal with. And I have slow drip for an hour. You can ask for an hour and a half. I take Benadryl on way to Infusion and another when I get seated in the chair. I take another Benadryl before I go to sleep and one or two a day for a few days aftward just to keep my immune system from fighting the iron. From my research online and patient reviews...I would opt for the Venofer. It's been used for many years and so few ppl have reactions with it t...

Injectafer infusion

I am having some side effects from the iron infusion that a I had a few day ago. These side effect include exhaustion, nausea, metallic taste in my mouth and major flu like symptoms. I have another infusion in less than a week. How long does it take to for symptoms to pass? I am so scared to go again on Tuesday. I would appreciate any information in regards to these issues. Thank you. ## Hello, Kimberly! How are you? Unfortunately, some side effects might not ever go away, which can be the major drawback of iron infusions. Some people do end up with lifelong joint pain, muscle aches and etc. as reported by the FDA. It doesn't happen to everyone, but it is a possibility, so you may want to discuss it with your doctor, before the next infusion. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

anemia in gastric bypass

I had a gastric bypass in 2001. I have anemia now and someone told me that in order for iron to be absorbed, there must be presence of acid in stomach. After bypass there is no gastric acid present. Is this true? Has anyone else had this problem? And if so, how is it treated ## If there were no gastric acid, then you would not be able to digest and absorb any food/nutrients. I suggest you speak to your doctor. ## You have plenty of acid. Enough that acid ate thru my staple line, ate 6 holes in my pouch and stomach, and I take 3 Rx of antacids. ## From what I've read, iron does need gastric acid to be absorbed. The way my surgeon explained it (14 years ago), the part of the stomach used to make the pouch is less elastic and produces less acid. And, my GI doctor said the bypassed part...

small black round pill marked L1

Please identify ## I also found a small black pill with L1 what is it??? ## Small round black and smooth with L1 or LI is normally an iron supplement taken usually by those with an iron deficiency or anemic people. ## The closest I have been able to find, so far, is a brown tablet distributed by Topco Associates, which they list as being brown and containing 200mgs of Ibuprofen. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach irritation, and increased risk of bleeding. I was not able to find described as being black. Braun, is that possibly an over the counter supplement? Does anyone else know?

ferro-tab 200mg

What if any side affects does ferro-tab 200 mg have. thankyou ## From what I could gather, Ferro-tab is an iron supplement for those who may be low in iron or anemic. The only side effects I've found on this supplement is that it may cause nausea, stomach upset, dark stools, and possibly constipation. If taken as directed, it's possible that you may not even experience these side effects at all. I hope this helps! ## Thanks very much David it did help. Regards Molly ## Can H-Pylori positive patients take Ferro-Tab(200mg)? If yes then how much?

Venofer (Iron sucrose) - Sugar substitute?

Does anyone know if the venofer infusion is made with a sugar substitute? I am epileptic and have a sugar substitute seizure trigger among other things. I recently started venofer and have my 4th infusion tomorrow for my anemia. I have had increased seizure activity and headaches, as well as an upset stomach the day after, to where I cannot leave the house. Any info will be helpful. Thank you. ## I didn't find any listed as being in it, according to the manufacturer's website. My husband is allergic to them, so I am always on the look out for them under their various names and forms. Headaches can be a normal side effect, according to FDA reports, the seizure activity is listed as being due to the possibility of being hypersensitive to it. Have you informed your doctor of the is...

Possible side effects for ferric carboxymaltose

I recently had an infusion of 500mil of diluted ferric carboxymaltose 13 days ago. Since then I have experienced sever fatigue and weakness, loss of appetite, difficult bowel movements , unusal anxiety and loss of consciousness. I previously had an infusion of venofer and experienced no side effects. My question is mainly to do with loss of consciousness which was experienced 13 days after the injection. Could a link be made ? Or has there been too much time between the infusion and the said incident? I have another infusion booked and am unsure whether or not to proceed . ## Hello, Emma! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about what you've experienced. The fatigue, loss of appetite, constipation and anxiety are all listed as possible side effects to iron infusions by the FDA. Ho...
