Comment:
Extremely fearful of taking the medication based on sign effects; however, this should not be a concern unless your red blood cell count is at 12 (Procrit is used to keep your count at 10 and end the use at 12). I am on my 6th week of 20,000 units per week and my quality of life has returned to being active and full of energy. No sign effects other then improvement of quality of life.

Comment:
My mother in law has been taking procrit shots for about a year. She has to have infusions which last for 5 hours. Does anyone know anything about why she should have to continue this drug? Her iron stays dangerously low. What does all of this mean? Please Help me
