    I have severe anemia and my first infusion was with Dextran, where i had no side affects whatsoever, and it took about 1.5 weeks to feel the effects of energy; it lasted about 3.5 months.

I also have small dotted rash (looks like I am covered with red freckles)under the skin of both legs. I really need the iron so I am suffering through these side effects. The plan is for the next IV in 3 days. Hoping the ... Show Full Comment
