Re: Injectafer IV
Jul 9, 2015
There are a few advantages for the injectafer iron infusions. You aren't given Benadryl before, and it's quick--you're in and out in half the time it took for venofer, and you only require two infusions separated by at least one week.

I experienced no side effects at all. :)

I was diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia three years ago, and my hematologist recommended venofer infusions when needed. My blood was tested every ten weeks. Last September I didn't go for a scheduled blood test, and finally went in December. By that time my #'s were so low I needed to be hospitalized three times requiring multiple blood transfusions.

Waiting until October to be tested seems like a long time. You can always call your doctor's office and ask to be tested sooner. How do you feel now?:)
