What Is Feraheme?

Feraheme, also known by the generic name ferumoxytol, is an iron supplement product for adults who need iron replacement but have not had success with oral iron supplements in the past. Doctors commonly prescribe it to treat patients with chronic kidney disease or iron deficiency anemia, a condition in which a person does not have enough iron in the blood to produce red blood cells that carry oxygen throughout the body. Iron deficiency anemia can cause tiredness and shortness of breath.

Hemoglobin, a protein found in red blood cells, contains approximately 70% of the iron found in the human body. Iron is also present in another protein called Ferritin. Ferritin stores and controls the release of iron in the body.

Since iron is not made in the body naturally, humans may need to rely on oral or intravenous supplementation to maintain adequate iron and hemoglobin levels. It is important to monitor iron levels, as levels outside a certain range can cause more health problems.

How Does Feraheme Work?

Feraheme treats iron deficiency intravenously to replenish iron storage and provide the body with enough iron to produce more red blood cells. The treatment requires two infusions and has a faster effect than the standard oral iron supplements, which are not always effective and can take up to a few weeks to start working.

Anemia left untreated can lead to heart conditions. Doctors may use Feraheme injections for patients who need a faster intervention, but if the treatment is not immediately effective, they may prescribe a third round of therapy.

Ferumoxytol Side Effects

Feraheme has several documented side effects. Consult with your doctor right away if you experience any of the following during or after an infusion:

  • A sudden drop in blood pressure
  • Allergic reactions
  • Excessive iron levels in the blood
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Difficulty breathing

Less common symptoms may include headache, nausea, and dizziness. 

Not all side effects are immediate or directly connected to Feraheme therapy. Additionally, this is not a comprehensive list of potential reactions. Some side effects will diminish with ongoing treatment as the body adjusts. Your physician will monitor your blood iron levels to ensure safe and proper administration.

Directions for Use

Feraheme is an injectable iron supplement designed only for use under the direct supervision of a physician. Patients receive the medication through an intravenous injection in a facility with medical staff monitoring for side effects of the medication. Before proceeding with this treatment, patients and doctors should consider several factors, including whether or not the patient has a history of allergic reactions to other intravenous iron products and the risk and benefits of the medication.

Doctors most commonly use Feraheme in adults with chronic kidney disease as anemia is a common complication of the diagnosis. The treatment involves a single intravenous infusion of 510 mg of the medication, lasting approximately 15 minutes long. Patients then receive a second dose roughly a week later, although it can be as soon as three days after administering the first dose.

Patients undergoing hemodialysis, a procedure where a dialysis machine with a filter cleans the blood of waste and fluids, require careful consideration when receiving this therapy. Physicians must monitor the patient’s blood pressure and ensure that one hour of hemodialysis is completed. Blood pressure measurements must be stable before receiving the first dose.
