Comment:
After my treatment I have a slight rash all over my body. I am itching like crazy and I have pain in my lower right abdomen area. I also am super tired and slept for hours after both treatments I have received. I am set up for six weeks of treatments and I am bummed because once I actually get in the room for the treatment it takes between one and a half hours to two hours for the iv.

Comment:
Had Venofer (first infusion) at 11:00 AM, tolerated it fine. I actually felt great afterwards. By 4:30 PM, I started having uncontrollable chills and a severe headache. I spiked a temp of 101.6 F and was miserable. It lasted all night despite Tylenol 1 gram. Next day woke up with moderate headache and body aches.

My urine turned dark brown immediately after IV therapy. No information in side effects to substantiate this. This lasted 2 days even with me drinking large amounts of wsater.
