Aranesp (darbepoetin alfa) for Anemia Associated with Chronic Renal Failure: "Helped to improveHemoglobin (hgb) and hematocrit (hct) and minimal Red blood cell (RBCs). Feel positive results thus far. Side effects were bone pain for few days after injection. Worst side effect was severe runny nose starting about 3 days post injection peaking about 2 weeks post injection and basically over at time for next injection."

Aranesp (darbepoetin alfa) for Anemia Associated with Chronic Renal Failure: "Couldn't breathe for months upon the least exertion. Extreme fatigue once the doctors figured out I was anemic due to chronic renal disease and started me on Aranesp I have felt much, much better. The only drawback for me was headache for a couple of days."
