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? Are you on any other medications?

Yes I have a bumpy red rash on my cheeks...It has been a week since my last second one...
I have also had severe stomach aches...went to sleep watching TV WITH MY GLASSES ON and woke up to blurry vision... finally went to sleep for the night and was ok in the morning... I find there are times I am dizzy and food doesn’t taste the same...before the iron levels so very low... I wanted salty food like chips and crackers.. now They don’t taste good...and I want sweets, which is funny for me..since I never have really liked or eaten sweets... I am sleeping better...but Injectafer is so expensive for me I will not be able to afford it again... I have chronic it seems poor absorption of iron from chronic inflammation (I believe) and. Hiatal Hernia...which I will not glad to be able to share..good to know I am not alone
