Introduction to Intafer Iv 5ml Injection

Intafer IV 5ml Injection contains an active ingredient called Iron (III) Isomaltoside. It belongs to the medication class known as anti-anemic medicines. It is used as an iron replacement medicine to treat iron deficiency anemia in adults who are intolerant to oral iron or have not responded well to oral iron preparations. Additionally, this medication treats this condition in individuals with chronic kidney disease who are on dialysis and cannot take oral iron supplementation.

Do not take this medicine if the anemia was not caused by iron deficiency (such as "hemolytic" anemia), if you have iron overload or impaired iron utilization, or if you have a history of severe allergic reactions to other injectable iron preparations and active liver disease.
