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.

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...

iron infusion: my side effects

Venofer- So, for a yr now I've been receiving IV iron infusions . My first set was beginning of 2013 having 8 of them with only mild headaches and feeling tired. This time my side effects have been many. I'm getting chest pains, nausea, extreme weakness, hot and cold chills, itching that makes me feel as though I'm going nuts, muscle weakness, moodiness, stomach pains that make me feel as though I'm dying, tongue and lip numbness too. Hope no one else is suffering from these side effects such as what I'm experiencing. It's a bummer. So tired. I wanna be well again. I even get heart palpitations too. This Friday 2-7-14,will be my last infusion for a while. I'll be sure to have nurse administer me Benadryl to lesson the side effects. ## Hello, Evelyn! How are y...
