My 70 year old mother is in need of iron transfusion therapy. Her hemotoligst has advised she may either take Ferrlecit 4 times per week for 2 weeks in a hospital setting or she may take one dose of Ferraheme in his office, followed by a second dose in his office approximately 5-8 days later. He advised the decision is up to her.

Our main concern is the possibility of anaphylactic reaction to the medication. I know there are many possible side effects but that one is the most concerning. She has a heart murmur and a small amount of plaque in her arteries (I am not certain this matters but wanted to put it out there).

Any light that anyone could shed, past experiences, etc. would be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance
