Doc wants be to do it again cause she wants my ... Show Full Comment

    I was given two doses of feraheme over 2 months for iron deficient anemia. My hemoglobin was at 8.6 . The infusions went well, I had no problems. My hemoglobin was normal after about 3 weeks and has stayed between 12 - 14 which is VERY GOOD for almost an entire year now. I have read lots of scary / bad experiences with feraheme, but I wanted to make sure to add my good experience. Also the nu ... Show Full Comment
