That all depends on the type of anemia one has. There are a lot of different reasons for anemia. I frequently suffer from anemia due to a wicked issue with iron deficiency. No iron = no new red blood cells. Procrit wouldn't help with that. I get periodic IV infusions of iron which bring my iron stores up and allow my body to manufacture an adequate blood supply. I don't have a problem making the blood if all of the ingredients are present.
I know Procrit is used extensively for patients with cancer as their body's ability to manufacture blood is hampered by the strong medications they must take.
Athletes also use a form of it illegally to boost their Hgl levels thereby increasing their body's oxygen supply to the muscles during competition.
Procrit is also very expensive and insurance companies can get pretty testy about covering it's cost!
This doesn't exactly answer your question. Why not ask your doctor, the nurses or your pharmacist for other conditions in which Procrit is given?
