I am on my second of four infusions and I have had the worst nausea, "swimmy" head and just all around aweful. My IV push only takes about 10 minutes and I was wondering if my side effects are because of how quickly they push it?? Really not looking forward to these each week.

I had my first dose of Feraheme this week and I ended up in ER from a severe allergic reaction, from burning sensations, itchiness, feeling out of sorts. The next day I was at my Specialist office with another allergic reaction from Feraheme. They have to canceled my second dose because of all the major side effects from this iron infusion.
