I am having 10 Venofer infusions over 10 days. What is this doing to my body and other organs?
Asked by Jonna Elmaghrabi 1 month ago.

This is given along with other drugs to help with anemia and red blood cell quality issues and if you are receiving any type of red-blood cell depleting therapies. This is basically a form or iron. They inject the iron because giving it orally would almost certainly cause bad gastritis and gut pain. They will probably be doing daily blood draws to check on how your blood is doing. Your physician or infusion center pharmacist or nurse will go over the possible adverse effects with you. Answered by Jannette Moralas 1 month ago.

I've a long history of iron deficiency/anemia. I'm having a difficult time finding whatever other methods of iron transfusion there are other than Iron Dextran. I had an unsuccessful trial transfusion of that which I had a sever anaphylactic reaction to it. I'm currently taking Procrit injections in hopes of raising the iron levels by boosting my red blood cell count. I am hoping it works but I also know if it fails my next step is transfusion. Knowing the Iron Dextran is not an option I was told there are a couple of other options but wasn't told their names. If anyone knows what they are I'd be grateful. Thanks!

I have had IV iron(venofer) almost 2months ago. The 6th of may i must have another blood test done but now all of a sudden i have all my symptoms back for anemia, and also I am on the pill for about 6months but i had spotting for 3weeks. I am almost 21 had anemia since last year january. Is it normal to have that much spotting when anemic and on the pill? and do you think my iron levels is down again? Please provide me with answers thanks Answered by Creola Glen 1 month ago.

I hope you and your doctor are working to find out why you are having trouble with your iron levels. I was borderline anemic the first time my doctor tested me, he suggested I take a multivitamin to help compensate for gaps in my diet. I then went on the generic version of seasonale, so I only get my period 4 times a year, and I exercise regularly (I normally do water aerobics 4 days a week), last time he tested me I was at the level of some of the female athletes patients he has, he was quite amazed at how good my level was given that I have GI issues and my diet is not always ideal (many foods make me ill so it can be hard to balance). Spotting is not that uncommon with birth control but you might want to ask your doctor about it to make sure, especially if it is a lot of blood. Eat healthy and balanced meals, take a multivitamin, exercise and hopefully you can get this under control. Hope you get better soon! Answered by Larue Bellen 1 month ago.

u will probably need more iron sounds like ur body has used up what u got from ur last iv, eat more green vegetables and take vitamin c to help ur body absorb more iron talk to ur dr about why ur anemic is it ur diet or is it something going on in ur body, most birth control causes spotting as long as its light i wouldn't worry about it Answered by Carlena Kubas 1 month ago.

I had my fourth iron infusion last week and I became very sick afterward. After the infusion was done the nurse took out the IV and I was preparing to go home. She had just checked my vital signs. My heart rate was around 100 and blood pressure was 107/65 I think. After 5 minutes I developed chest pain and severe shortness of breath. My heart rate was now in the 180's and my blood pressure shot up. I was given Xopenex nebulizer, nitroglycerin, aspirin, and morphine. I think I was given more Benadryl and steroids but not sure. I know after I was transported to the ER I did. I had a bad reaction back in October as well where I had a high heart rate, nausea, vomiting, and fever. Both trips ended up getting me admitted to the hospital. I have also had 2 infusions with no side effects because we prepped for them with prednisone, decadron, Benadryl, and zofran. Those two were about 1 month ago and at lower doses whereas this last one was a higher dose (I prepped) for this one too. Has anyone else had such a problem with iron infusions. It was with Venefur. I also had very bad burning in my feet during my last infusion and pain at the IV site. I have been told this is going to be a lifelong problem and we will have to do lower doses and more often along with the prep. Any insight would be great. Answered by Rosalyn Gullion 1 month ago.

That's rather unusual with Venofer. It's supposed to have fewer side effects than InFed. However, even if reactions are rare, that only means they happen to someone. Unfortunately, that's you. It does sound like you'll need to go back to the lower doses.:( Ask your doc about adding a dose of either Pepcid or Zantac with your prep. Benadryl works on one part of the histamine system, those drugs on another. It probably won't do much, but can't hurt. Best of luck. Answered by Donnell Longenecker 1 month ago.

If the spot it darker then your pores and skin attempting lightening it up with some lemon juice. Lemon juice is a organic bleach and could loosen up the spot and just about make it vanish. Use lemon juice or lemon extract, it extremely works wonders. I usedto get extremely returned brown spots on my pores and skin and that i attempted many creams and stuff no longer something worked. My dad cautioned lemon juice (well-being care expert) and after employing it for some days they wre virtuall long gone. reckoning on the dimensions and darkness/ assessment on your pores and skin it ought to take slightly longer. observe the lemon juice on that brown spot and around the area with a cotton ball soaked in lemon juice as quickly as interior the morning and as quickly as interior the evening.

I've asked this question a couple times, but haven't gotten many responses. I'm thinking it's cause the time of day I ask, most people are working. So I'm gonna try one last time... I'm 27 weeks pregnant, and have been put on IV Iron Theraphy once a week, for 4 weeks. Doc says I am severely anemic. My levels are at 26, and my doc said they SHOULD be atleast 40. I've been feeling very dizzy, and sleep every chance I get. I'm a stay at home Mommy to a 3 year old daughter, so it's not easy. My heart starts beating really fast, and I feel like I am going to pass out. My doc said it could all be related. Anyway, I am having my first IV Iron session tomorrow morning. I have a lot of things to do after that, and then will be driving 5 hours to Miami for my Baby Shower with friends & family. How should I feel after? Will it make me sick? Or sleepy? Anything? Or should I feel really good after? Also, I know a lot of iron can also make you constipated. Will IV iron do the same thing? Answered by Serita Heimerdinger 1 month ago.

i've never had this but this is from the web Intravenous or Injected Iron In some cases, iron is administered through muscular injections or intravenously. Intravenous iron has the advantage of causing less gastrointestinal discomfort and inconvenience. It may be in the form of iron dextran (Dexferrum, InFed), sodium ferric gluconate complex in sucrose (Ferrlecit), or iron sucrose (Venofer). Ferrlecit or Venofer are proving to be at least equally effective and safer than iron dextran. Candidates. The injected or intravenous forms should be limited to the following patients with iron deficiency: People with iron deficiency anemia in whom oral therapy has clearly failed. Patients with bleeding disorders in which blood loss continues to exceed the rate at which oral iron is absorbed. In emergencies, when people need red blood cells but transfusion is not appropriate or available. In people with serious gastrointestinal disorders, such as inflammatory bowel disease, who cannot take iron therapy by mouth. People undergoing hemodialysis who receive supplemental erythropoietin therapy. Sodium ferric gluconate complex in sucrose (Ferrlecit) or iron sucrose (Venofer) is specifically approved as first-line therapy for these patients. One 2003 study suggested that a combination of iron and vitamin C by mouth might be sufficient to maintain adequate iron and vitamin C stores. Certain patients, even if they meet these qualifications, may not be appropriate candidates or should be monitored closely for complications. They include: Patients with any underlying autoimmune disease. Malnourished patients who also have an underlying infection. Patients who are at risk for iron overload. Side Effects. Some side effects differ depending on how the iron is administered and include the following: Muscular injections include pain at the site. Intravenous administration can cause pain in the vein, flushing, and metallic taste, all of which are brief. For both methods, side effects and serious complications can include: Blood clots Fever Joint aches Headache Rashes A delayed reaction of joint and muscle aches, headache, and malaise occurs 1 - 2 days after the infusion (most commonly with iron dextran) in about 10% of patients. These symptoms respond quickly to NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen or naproxen, in most people. Iron toxicity. Symptoms include nausea, dizziness, and a sudden drop in blood pressure. Sodium ferric gluconate in sucrose (Ferrlecit) or iron sucrose (Venofer) may pose a lower risk for toxicity than iron dextran. Allergic reactions. Allergic reactions that occur with intravenous iron can be very serious and, in rare cases, even fatal. Iron dextran appears to pose a much higher risk than sodium ferric gluconate complex in sucrose or iron sucrose, although allergic reactions can also occur with the latter forms. Oral and injected iron should never be given at the same time. Intravenous iron therapy may be appropriate for some pregnant women who meet these requirements, depending on the pregnancy term and other factors. Answered by Terrence Urbany 1 month ago.

to take instead? I have to go hospital every six months for an infusion of venofer (iron), one a week for six weeks. The staff are so slow it adds to my distress, the infusion only takes 20 mins, but I'm there 4-6 hours and I can't bear to go through it again. I also suffer from MSC and most of the nurses and other patients wear chemical fragrances, so it's a nightmare for me, plus the Hospital is too warm and stuffy! Surely I could get my iron levels up some other way? I eats loads of vegetables, sprouts cabbage etc, apricots, liver.... My colitis is hardly ever in remission and I'm always either severely constipated or I have bad diarrhea, so I can't take Ferrous Sulphate because that makes me even more constipated. I'm on 3 senna and 3 docusate daily, while these make me open my bowels every other day, they cause me severe tummy ache. I'm SO sick of being sick! I also take 3 Azathioprine, 30mg Lansoprazol, Codliver Oil & Primrose Oil. Would it be safe for me to take Folic Acid? Answered by Lila Donez 1 month ago.

first thing is with this complicated history you need to see a professional naturopath alongside with whoelver else you're seeing medically. The other thing would be look at the type of iron you've been taking. Iron sulphate is poorly absorbed, can destroy vitamin E in the body, and cause constipation and nausea. Instead, look at an iron chelate which has a better absorption and less or no side effects. When taken with vitamin B6, vitamin B12, folate and some vitamin C it maximizes iron's absorption in the body. Having said that with ulcerative colitis, you're absorption is likely to be less anyway so that needs to be worked on simultaneously. Have you looked at Pure aloe vera juice and glutamine? they are very soothing for the bowel and help heal wounds along the gastrointestinal tract. Get under supervision of a naturopath :) a good one :) good luck! Answered by Kassandra Badgett 1 month ago.

Ask your doctor about switching to an over the counter Iron supplement called SlowFE. It absorbs slowly, so you don't get most of the irritating side effects that the other iron supplements tend to give. Answered by Ismael Filyaw 1 month ago.

It happens all the time. When I got promoted to full time, my dog died that day. When the court granted my case the way I had hoped, my cat died. When I got my music played on the radio in St. Louis, I had a terrible accident and had to have surgery. This week, my cousin got married and his grandpa died the same day. His mama said she thinks there is only so much room in th family. Their great grandpa died when the baby was born in November. Trades happen all the time!

What are iron infusions?
I have all the symptoms of iron deficiency anemia and I'm having a blood test ASAP, but I can't take pills for the life of me. Someone recommended iron infusions as an alternative - what are they? Asked by Christa Surma 1 month ago.

* Iron dextran (trade names including Cosmofer, DexFerrum, Infed) * Iron sucrose (trade names including Venofer) * Iron carboxymaltose (trade name Ferinject) Iron poisoning may result in mortality or short-term and long-term morbidity. Answered by Silva Vernetti 1 month ago.

Iron can be given orally via tablets or a liquid. If for some reason a person cannot tolerate or absorb oral medications you can have 3 monthly iron infusions which is iron given intravenously (into the vein) over 30-60 minutes. You usually have to attend a daycentre/hospital to have this done. I suggest you wait for your blood test and try liquid preparations if required- infusions should be a last resort.
