Read the "IV Iron-is it worth it?" a few posts below yours. I'm guessing the dr. wants to do an intraveinous infusion (IV.) I think the drug you're talking about may be called Venofer--it does have a website but I don't have it bookmarked on this computer. Just go to or another search engine and enter the drug name. The dr. will probably be really watchful the first few times your partner gets this drug. Any drug has the potential to cause allergic reactions and this type more so. I get Ferrlecit by IV and it works but I had a really bad reaction to Infed. I'm usually given pre-meds like Benadryl and Solu Medrol to inhibit future allergic reactions. Good Luck!
