I get epogen 3 times a week, during dialysis. I am experiencing night sweats which may be related to the drug. It is very disrupting to my sleep!!

I started taking it with dialysis through the machine. Due to my blood work the Dr changed to sub-acute. Every time I took it sub acute I would have a hot flash, sick at my stomach, and start vomiting. I refused to take it again unless I received it through the machine.

Receiving Epogen 3 times per week with dialysis is constant joint pain, migraine headaches, and most recently extreme high blood pressure. Eyes were hemoraging, blurred vision, etc.. Make sure you understand all side effects. Be extremely careful & keep up with all blood work.
