The recommended dose of Feraheme is an initial 510 mg intravenous injection followed by a second 510 mg intravenous injection 3 to 8 days later. Administer Feraheme as an undiluted intravenous injection delivered at a rate of up to 1 mL/sec (30 mg/sec). The dosage is expressed in terms of mg of elemental iron, with each mL of Feraheme containing 30 mg of elemental iron. Evaluate the hematologic response (hemoglobin, ferritin, iron and transferrin saturation) at least one month following the second Feraheme injection. The recommended Feraheme dose may be readministered to patients with persistent or recurrent iron deficiency anemia.
For patients receiving hemodialysis, administer Feraheme once the blood pressure is stable and the patient has completed at least one hour of hemodialysis. Monitor for signs and symptoms of hypotension following each Feraheme injection.
Inspect parenteral drug products visually for the absence of particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration.
However, please double check with your doc/pharmacist who prescribed the med, take care, be well & safe!
