FERUMOXYTOL - INJECTION

(FER-ue-MOX-i-tol)

COMMON BRAND NAME(S): Feraheme

USES: This medicine is used to treat "iron-poor" blood (anemia) in people with long-term kidney disease. It is a form of iron that must be given by injection. You may need extra iron because of blood loss during kidney dialysis treatment.

Iron is an important part of your red blood cells and is needed to carry oxygen throughout the body. Many patients with kidney disease cannot get enough iron from food and require injections.

HOW TO USE: This medication will be given by a health care professional. It is given slowly into a vein (IV), usually in a clinic or in a hospital. Treatment involves receiving two doses of ferumoxytol, given 3 to 8 days apart during dialysis.

The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Your doctor will take blood tests to monitor your treatment.
