Hi,
how long is it since you last had iv iron? The stuff they use these days doesnt seem to cause many problems (ie venofer, cosmofer).
I had bad reactions to oral iron, so i have the infusions now without any major problems.
your doc should be able to inform you of any alternatives.
Regards
Linds
Hi,

the iron infusions work fairly quickly dependant on how low your iron is. I have the infusions once a week for about 4/6 weeks, and usually start feeling better after the 2nd or 3rd week (although everyone is different - some people ive spoke to whilst having my treatments say they feel better within days - everyone is different.

have they said what you'll be getting? i normally have venofer, which i thought was okay, but the last one i had was called cosmofer, which was a one day treatment thats meant to last longer than the venofer (they decided to switch as i was needing the venofer quite often). although my anemia is caused by endometriosis, so its like a vicious circle with me, my levels go up and down like a lift!

if you need anymore info/advice or a chat post back.
Good luck

Linds
