    How many treatments of Venofer do most people get?

    I had my first treatment today and I was wondering how many treatments do most people get? I know that the Venofer is given weekly and I wondering how often I was going to have to get this done.
    Thank you

    I think this is different depending on the doctor that is ordering the IV iron. I have read here that they are weekly for 5 weeks and also I think that I remember reading 8. I even think some people have them 2 times in the same week. So, how did your first treatment go? FLFLOWERGIRL

    It went great! Although they gave me steroids, benadryl and tylenol and the steroids always make me feel bad. I go back to see the doctor this next Wednesday, I guess he will tell me then how many treatments he is going to do.
    I had iron dextran a few years back. I would have preferred to get that because you do it all in one day. Although, I am thankful to be getting the iron so that I will feel better, HOPEFULLY.
    Thanks for asking it was so nice to find this board and people that are going through the same thing even though I wish no one had to go through it.
