Exjade (deferasirox) for Iron Overload: “I began taking Exjade in 2017 for iron overload in my liver. To start, I didn't like the way that I had to take it. I had to mix 3 tablets 1 with water or orange juice. They did not dissolve very well. The breakdown of the tablets was gritty. Side affects: rash, diarrhea, weak kidneys, and symptoms of gout. Stopped taking after about eight months to a year and the issues started clearing up, but I am still suffering from kidney issues. I do not recommend this drug to anyone.”

For Hemochromatosis: “Lost 20 lbs, no appetite, diarrhea, been 6 week now since my last dose and still not back to 100%. My problem is I also have MDS with Hemochromatosis. Dr. still don't have it figured out. Blood work showed my Iron level went up, and kidney function went down.”
