What Is Injectafer?
Injectafer (generic name: ferric carboxymaltose) is an iron replacement medication that is administered intravenously as directed by a physician.
This therapy has been approved in pediatric patients who are at least 1 year of age or in adults who have an intolerance to oral iron supplements, have had an unsatisfactory response to oral iron, or have non-dialysis-dependent chronic kidney disease.
What Is Injectafer Used to Treat?
Injectafer has been FDA approved to treat Iron-Deficiency Anemia.
However, it can also be administered for off-label indications such as abdominal surgery (perioperative anemia management), chemotherapy-associated anemia, iron-deficiency anemia in inflammatory bowel disease, iron-deficiency in heart failure with reduced ejection fraction, and restless leg syndrome.
Your physician will determine if this therapy is appropriate for you to use based on your signs and symptoms and clinical diagnosis.
Injectafer Warnings and Precautions
- Hypersensitivity reactions: Patients should be monitored for any signs and symptoms of hypersensitivity before and after each Injectafer infusion. An observation period of 30 minutes is recommended to ensure the patient is stable upon completion.
- Symptomatic hypophosphatemia: Patients should have their phosphate levels closely monitored while on Injectafer infusions.
- Hypertension: Patients should monitor their blood pressure closely following each infusion.
