New IV Iron Infusion (Ferumoxytol)

Has anyone (or know anyone who has) used this new form of infusion? It was just approved by the FDA last year. My g/f is going in for treatment, and the Dr. said side effects are rare with this new form. Not to mention, much faster injection times, mins as opposed to hours.

Any info would be appreciated.

Re: New IV Iron Infusion (Ferumoxytol)

This is interesting.........I'm on IV ferrlecit and had a reaction now 2 days ago. So when I go to the doctor tomorrow I have to tell him. : (
