Comment from: whtdmnds56, 45-54 on Treatment for 5-10 years (Patient) Published: May 20

I have crohn's disease. I do not absorb Iron. Between low Iron, Ferritin and B-12, it is ridiculous. Infed is not something I find so easy to take. I have infusions about 3 to 4 times a year. I get severe back pain, nausea, headache, very low blood pressure and am sick for about a week with these symptoms. Once it kicks in however, I am at least able to function on a daily basis. However, I would not suggest to anyone who is able to take an oral supplement for this problem. Infed will knock you on your butt!

I have been on infed for 4-5 years. Have experienced some side effects mentioned in other posts. I have a question for other iron dextran patients. Have you noticed extreme drying of skin especially on face?

I lost a lot of blood over a months time from uterine fibroids. I then had a hysterectomy wher I lost more blood. My iron level was 13. I took the IV iron treatment yesterday and I felt like they gave me lead. I've never been so tired in my life. I'm looking forwards to some benefits over the next few days. This is heavy duty stuff.

i was 8 months pregnant. only 2ml of test dose was given before i went into shock, and my baby's heart rate dropped to 50 bpm needless to say less than 12 minutes after dose was given, i was in operating room having an emergency c section, resulting in a 5 week early baby who was in thr NICU for two weeks! Please do not take if you are pregnant!!!! My baby and myself almost died!

The test dose and first treatment were problem free. The second dose caused back pain. I had a very severe allergic reaction on my third treatment. It occured about 30 minutes after the injection. I broke out in welts and uncontrollable itching. I had to be given steriods and Benedryl to reverse the reaction.
